They are on "backorder", which I think really means preorder. Quality is on par with Incotex dress pants with a RLPL cut.

I saw this shirt at Saks (the orange one). It is fantastic:

Very nice. Thanks!

In the event anyone is interested in ties, STP has a bunch of Massimo Bizzocchi, Drakes, and the usual selection of Altea and Talbott. Unfortunately none of the Isaia jackets are Euro 50L.

I really have to appauled Mr. Chu, he set out and created a high quality product which bridges the price gap between, for the purposes of simplicity, RLPL and Polo Blue Label. I think it presents an attractive price point for guys that are into fine looking timeless clothing without paying an arm and a leg.

My hope is that his brand gains moment and continues to perform well. My understanding is he is in the process of opening a store in NYC, including a bespoke operation with suits made in Naples.

Sounds good to me. What I'd like to see go back in style full force are pants that sit at your actual waist. All these low rise suit trousers and chinos in bootcut are starting to give me a sartorial headache. I think Thom Browne (sorry if you hate him) has shown it can be done well with the tapered legs and all. He would appeal more to the market he's aiming at if he'd lower his prices or have a lower end line. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon. Also, if he would budge on the highwater pants for his bespoke suits.

His stuff is actually so much better on you than it looks in pics or even on the shelf. I give him an edge overall versus RLPL. RLPL has better suits (at double the price!) and outerwear but shirts, slacks, odd jackets and ties I give the edge to Mr. Chu. I also hope he finds success and will look to possibly get something made by them in Naples.

I think of it as Gianluca Napoli done right. Price points are about the same, but the Isaia line has not impressed me - fabrics are blah, cut is just okay.

I haven't seen much of his new stuff at all, but i like what I see in the thread and I remember always liking the styling of the "Nautica by David Chu" stuff often pictured in GQ. So, you know, go David!

They look nice, regardless. I'm just not sure I'm a big fan of patch pockets.
As my dad says
"They're big Green Jeans pockets"
Me:"Who the hell is Green Jeans"
Dad: On Capt. Kangaroo he went around and pulled out compasses and whistles and shit
