Gianluca Isaia Shirts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anybody know anything about the quality of Gianluca Isaia dress shirts? I just picked one up today on sale (it had a $295 retail price). According to the little tag booklet that comes with the shirt it says that "hand basting and felling are used to attach the sleeve to the body of the shirt," it also says that it has a reinforced sleeve gauntlet, gusset triangles, Mother of Pearl buttons and handsewn buttonholes. The seams also have single needle stitching with a lot of stitches per inch (more than most high quality shirts I've seen). It seems like a pretty good shirt to me that is well worth what I paid for it, the only reason I ask is because I've never really heard anyone talk about Isaia shirts on here.

I love them. They are indeed possessed of a good deal of handwork, and are very well constructed. Are they the best bargain out there? No... but I typically pull the trigger at anything discounted at least 50% and have found them in the STP store in Reno, NV for under $100. Excellent fabrics and very thick MOP buttons.

I think that I have 3 Isaia shirts - they are all very nice, well-made and an interesting fabric selection. I'd recommend them without hesitation. I think that I got all three for $50-75 on Ebay several years ago - no one seemed to know/care about Isaia online at that time...

Nice shirts, but there better options available.

Maybe at full retail, but I got a helluva deal on this shirt. Only thing is that it's not in my size, so I'm going to sell it on ebay.

I have one I love that I picked up at Century 21 a while back. Great fabric, collar, button holes, etc. Fit is very large though, which is odd, considering it's from Isaia. But I like the fabric and quality enough that I'm willing to overlook the fit issues.

Does anyone know if Isaia makes them, or are they are farmed out to another shirt manufacturer?

IIRC, there were rumors that they were made by Borrelli. Can't swear to it, though - my memory ain't what it used to be!
