Funny, but I find a lot of the newer Isaia stuff sub-par to the older models. After a couple of years of experimentation,I found what works/what I favor and I'd say about 80% of my current closet is Isaia. Even though I picked up a couple of pieces in the newer Base S cut in the last year, it can't touch the older Stuart or Scott or even the first generation of S models in terms of the subtlety of the cut and the silhouette . The new shoulders seem more padded and not...
A week or so ago I saw a PSA that Clad was having a post-Xmas sale on flat front flannel Incotex for $109 Figuring that this is essentially B&S pricing for a staple item, I picked up a pair and they arrived today. Since I own about 20 pair, I think I have a feel for the brand. I've got em from Italy, Romania, and Portugal, in wool, cotton, and some summer linochinos - just great fitting pants all around as long as you stay away from the super-slim ball, crushing models....

Hey - I took the white, navy, & black ones a while back. I'll take the light blue one if you've still got it. Am out of the country now with sketchy wifi, so don't sweat if there is a gap in the response.. Thanks! Tom
Bump for an awesome seller and some killer stuff - amazed it is still here at these prices!
APCs - either the NS or the Rescues, or look at Tellason or 3Sixteens -.good denim without any stupid pocket stitching. Sizing can be a little tricky, but there is a ton of info on that in SWD. Once you figure out your correct size, you can get them new on FleaBay for less than 1/2 price.
