On Location: Ermenegildo Zegna

Previous Next

We have always had a fondness for Ermenegildo Zegna: It’s a family-owned company, more than a century old, that does things the right way. What began as a textile mill has grown into a clothing company with a global reach. But they still make fabric, however, and make it very well. And of course they make everything from traditional suits to the tech-savvy outerwear of their Elements line

BG’s resident Zegna expert, George Glynos, who has worked in the Zegna area on the Second Floor for fifteen years, was lucky enough to make the trip to two of Zegna’s factories. The fabric mill in Trivero, Italy, takes wool and refines and spins it again and again until it is fine, luxurious and ready to be made into a very dapper suit. The other, just across the border in Novara, Switzerland, is one of two factories where Zegna (212 339 3319) makes their suits. It’s an impressive operation in a beautiful setting. When you buy a suit it says a lot about the company you keep, and we’re proud to say that Zegna is a friend of Bergdorf Goodman in good standing.
