My basted Liverano, in vintage Zegna Electa sharkskin, ready for the first-fitting.  To say I’m excited is an understatement.
A quick story - when Antonio, Taka, and Qemal were in town this past April, I had the opportunity to see how they conducted their fittings.  Some clients, who were very specific, knew exactly what they wanted while others took Antonio’s guidance wholly.  I was one of the latter.  I asked Antonio to pick something out for me that he felt was representative of what I’d like and I left all of the details to him.
After a few minutes of deliberation with Taka and Qemal, he handed me a single, tiny swatch of fabric on a old, yellow card.  I started laughing.
In reality, he could have handed me any swatch and there was a 95% chance that I would have said yes.  But the fact that he picked something that immediately resonated with me made the process that much more enjoyable.
I saw one swatch that day and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
