Interesting Cotton/Linen Isaia suit on STP

The material looks like it has an almost denim-like patina. The price makes it sound like it's a "Gianluca"-line level of quality, but it's a little hard to tell. Cotton/linen suits tend to go for less than wool, so...

Look kind of like corduroy. It's kind of weird that it's not labeled as an Isaia in the title of the listing. Only thing that indicates that it's an Isaia is that it says "Note: Your suit may have a specialty store sewn-in label, but it is a genuine Gianluca Isaia garment." Strange.

ANother interesting point. Centre-vented.

Center vent doesn't bother me all that much on a corduroy (or tweed) coat.

I noticed the suit and assumed that either the retailer or Isaia put this condition on the sale by STP.....Strange though. STP also has some interesting new Belvest suits in very fine fabrics (super 160s) and limited sizes.

Sounds like a lot of questions about a $500 suit. You might want to look around some more and try to fine a better deal.

The tan one looks like corduroy, whereas the blue one looks like a demin type of fabric. As for the label, I know Isaia makes or has made suits for Paul Stuart and Brook Brothers, so it could be from a similar arrangement.

STP has a pretty liberal return policy so you may want to take advantage of such.

If you look closely, the pick stitching is actually a little hem (don't know the correct term), which reminds me a little too much of low-end designer suits.

I have no intention of buying it. I just thought the make, material and texture were interesting, as well as the fact that STP felt it couldn't list Isaia in the item name but did so in the description.
