I'm a complete noob with ISAIA. So I'm wondering if I can get some help.
I picked this up shirt from a thrift earlier, any info on the deets? I wonder how old it is?

Confirming this is an old Isaia label... Thoughts?

Does anybody have any idea what "Nuova base "S"" is? I saw it on a model in an on-line shop, so was wondering... How are the shoulders, buttoning point (this one is 2 button), are front quarters open....

Any info highly appreciated.

The s body is their tradditional cut in the USA. The Gregory is a more contemporary cut. The s compared to the g has a longer length, wider point to point, and more closed quarters. It also does not have thw roped shoulders the G body had. The pants also have a larger leg opening and a higher rise. If you are getting a suit watch out bc the pants (at least for me) always have too much material in the seat that needs to be tailored unless your butt is very large, and i mean large).i tend to prefer the G but to each his own.

That being said i know that they changed the S (esp the pants) this year to make it closer to the G cut. Maybe the Nuova part refers to that. So not sure how it is with the changes but the S is their fuller more traditional cut.

Thanks. This is very helpful.

Perhaps I digress a bit, but I'm seeing quite a lot of sportcoats chez ISAIA using flap pockets (especially in the GREGORY model). I always thought sportcoat should have patch pockets. Is there any sartorial rule about flap pockets on sportcoats?

Nop, maybe an Italian thing at most?

Did you mean flap pockets being acceptable on sportcoats?

 

Thank you.

No rule like that apart from on SF.

Thanks for clarifying.

 

I think that patch pockets help to distinguish orphan suit jacket from sportcoats. Thinking about buying an ISAIA Gregory sportcoat (with flap pockets) and perhaps I'm just overthinking it...

I have a few gregory SC that all have flap pockets. IMO the gregory with the roped shoulders looks better with flap pockers. I think it general isaia does gregory with flap pockets. The dustin or cortina are usually done with patch pockets. Of course you can also MTO them with whatever pockets you want.

When I mentioned this to the ISAIA saleswoman, I had exactly the same answer. ISAIA believes that the roped Gregory shoulder looks incongruous with patch pockets. She recommended Capri shoulders with patch pockets... I think I'll stick to Gregory with flap pockets.
