Isaia Made to Measure

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any experience with Isaia's made to measure program? I am very pleased with my RTW Isaia suit and continue to really like their overall look ("poor" man's Kiton?). I am considering stopping by their M2M program at Barneys (M2M for same price as RTW)

Kiton is overpriced. Isaia is priced about right for what you get. The MTM program is excellent. Many of the customers at the store where I shop are switching from Zegna MTM to Isaia MTM. Note that you can choose from many colorful linings Isaia has to offer, so don't miss that option.

Yeah, the salesman told me about the lining option.  I was surprised to see that Zegna MTM is the same price as Isaia MTM.  It seems to me that Isaia is really targeting a sweet spot in the market from a value perspective. On a side note, does anyone know why many Isaia RTW suits are labelled "Made in Switzerland"? (eerily like Zegna)

What is the pricing for Isaia MTM at Barney's? Thanks.

Depends on fabric. Most are 2,395 (which is the RTW price of all their Isaia suits). Some 100s are 2,295, most 130s are 2,495. I imagine the more exotics/higher counts are more, but I'd say 80% are 2295-2495 (no extra charge for custom lining, working buttonholes, etc).

Well, I pulled the trigger on a super 130s navy pinstripe Isaia MTM (went for a burgundy lining). Also met the Isaia north america Rep. We'll see how it looks in 6-8 weeks....

I wouldn't say that. They are world class, and often use exclusive fabrics. You do get what you pay for, although "˜what' you pay for it is another matter altogether. Jon.

Isaia priced the same as zegna is absurd. Isaia is so much better. that's like a BMW 545i being the same price as a VW Bug what was the name of the American Rep? andrew?

I own 3 MTM Isaia suits, all bought through Saks, in NYC. I couldnt be happier.

Comparing Zegna to Isaia doesn't quite make sense to me, unless you're comparing them because they are available in the same channel--Neiman's. How would Isaia compare to Borrelli, for example?

Not to hijack my own thread, but i've actually wondered - a) how are Borrelli's suits and what would be the "peer group" and b) who makes Isaia's shirts and ties? The stitching of their shirts seems remarkably similar to Borrelli shirts.
