Isaia models - Page 3

post #31 of 50
I believe the difference between The Scott and Stewart is 2 buttons verses three buttons. Now a days it called "S" body.
post #32 of 50
anyone have a V or Vincent model in e54R that they could give me some chest/shoulder/waist measurements on? much appreciated!
post #33 of 50
Is the S model supposed to be conservative? How low are the armholes and how non slim is it?

The one I saw in b and s seems to have a higher button stance making the lapel not cover the chest pocket.

Anyone familiar with the Maxim (G)? I purchased one from the Virtual Clotheshorse
3 years ago. I love it. It has basically no padding. More recently, I got a Sirio
model suit and had the small amount of padding reduced.

I have found the current Base S model a bit skimpy with a shorter coat, at least at Saks.
This may reflect the current "tight" clothing look preferred by the effete Milanese portrayed in the
Sortorialist blog. Not for me. I wear 44R jacket and 35 waist trousers. That
style would make me look like a sausage.

Tried on Base S 44R at Barneys in SF this past weekend. Basically the Best fitting off the rack I've ever seen.

Bump - anyone familiar w/ the Valerio model?

I assume it may be one of the predecessors to the Base V model?

I've lost track of Isaia models. They come and go too quickly for me.

I've only started looking at Isaia models lately and I've only seen S and V model in stores.

With that said I read something recently where Isaia has so many different models and names that no two stores will ever carry the same item. I need to find that article...

Just bought the Isaia navy chalkstripe suit during the Gilt sale. Interesting enough, its tagged as "Base Gregory".

What type of fit/cut does this imply? Does this mean this Isaia suit is 3/4 years old like another poster earlier in the thread suggested?

This is from the TBSDSpaniard PSA thread that turned into him proxying Isaia coats for half of the forum:

Ronald,

Sorry that it took so long to get back to you about the body types. Hope this answers all of your questions! Let me know if you need anything else!


The Sirio ( S Body)- The most popular body within the Isaia line is also the fullest in structure The S Body is the base in the collection from which all others are derives. Defined by its classic Neapolitan natural shoulder, this garment was shortened slightly in 2008 to give it a more contemporary expression. This model as with all Isaia garments is available in 2 or 3 button, peak and notch lapels, single or double breasted.

The Vesuvio (V body)- A tad more suppressed in the torso than the S body, these garments are defined by their rope shoulder, and even higher armhole.

The Tribeca (T-Body)- The T body has a suppressed torso similar to the V-body. A lightly roped shoulder and very fitted sleeve- similar to that of a sweater.

The Gregory (g-body)- Similar to the S body yet defined by a softer shoulder, this design carries a shorter body, and a mildly tapered sleeve.

The Dustin Body (d- Body) This model has an even softer shoulder than the S Body, and even more natural deconstructed shoulder and is generally styled in a French face/half lined jacket. This shoulder shows "grinze" creases/pleating at the sleeve head. This soft jacket is usually accompanied by a 3 patch pocket.

The X Body- Similar to the G body characterized by the single button closure which created a more fitted midsection with in the garment.

I own a Base S in a 52R, a G - something (can't remember, don't want to go look right now) in a 52R and a Dustin in a 54R. It seems like, just as with any Zegna I try on, I can get varying fit even within the same size and cut. I can try a 52R Base S that fits like a glove and then another one that pulls in the chest and doesn't work for me. FWIW the Dustin is pretty cool. I think I'm going to snap some pics on it and post it b/c I'm about to get it altered and it is the coolest jacket I own. Only lined in the sleeves and shoulders, zero padding, like a sweater jacket.

Similar to Flapjack, I find Isaia sizing, even within the same model to be somewhat inconsistent. I have a couple of sportcoats in a 52R Base S which fit great in the shoulders and had to take a few inches off the waist. I went into a Saks and tried on the same size suit jacket, and it did not fit as nicely. Some pulling, shoulders were more snug and when I went up a size, it was too big. Same results with sportcoats bought from STP. Base V I definitely have to size up to 54R, but even then the shoulders do not work very well for me, and it has a "harder" look. I also have Base L sportcoat. Great shoulders similar to the S, but baggier in the body. Had to take more off the waist than I did with the S, but after I did, it looks great. My advice is try every Isaia on and try up and down a size, and ultimately have the opportunity to return if a particular model doesn't work out for you.

No. recent Isaia suits/jackets no longer use names as their model names. The most popular model now is "Base S", less popular is "Base V", they apply to both suits and jackets. If you see anything that still has names as their model name such as "Stewart", "Vincent" or "Scott", they are at least 3 or 4 years old.

 

I can buy a isaia jacket with on the label MODELLO: BASE "TWINS" there is nothing to find on the internet about this model. According to the above information this jacket is at least 8 years old??

 

Anyone familiar with this specific Isaia model? Thank you.

Rather than starting a new thread, I figured I would post here, bringing back a thread from the dead...yes, I use the search feature, resulting in this.

 

What is everyone's thoughts on this suit in charcoal / cream? I think it looks pretty sharp. I am looking to order one in the next few days.

That is an awesome suit. I find the S-body is a very flattering cut - slimmer than US suits, but not too slim.

The only word of caution is that you often can't tell how the fabric looks in real life with STP. Although you'd think charcoal/cream would be pretty straightforward, be prepared for a possible return. And make sure you get one of the discount codes by joining their mailing list. They mail out 25 - 35% on a pretty regular basis.
