    Just wanted to get comments on this Isaia auction. I don't see myself buying it, though it's in my size and has piqued my curiosity. The main things I'm interested in are the projected age (the label looks old), the unusual nylon fabric content, and the cut of the suit- I have a 50R (Italian size) Isaia jacket in the Stewart cut from Louis that fits me very well, while this one in 38 seems to be on the larger side, especially the shoulder measurements.

    The pattern is funky and odd and not attractive (to me). But worst of all, 5% nylon?.? From a respected Naples maker, in a suit with a lot of handwork? Pass.

    Yeah, just to defend my taste, I don't see myself bidding, primarily because of the nylon. I was just hoping one of the Isaia experts here could tell me what is going on here [​IMG]
