There is a great Isaia suit i am looking at buying online. I have never worn an Isaia suit though. I am wondering what kind of fit I can expect. It is an Isaia suit, model Cary A. I typically like the slimmer cut suits like Gucci and Prada. I don't like suits as skinny as Dior, and I don't like suits as full cut as Armani. I would appreciate your input as to what I can expect. I have heard some people compare the fit to Kiton, but I have never worn a Kiton suit either. Thanks for the help!!!

Isaia fits like a shirt or a lightweight sweater.

Yeah. If it fits you right, it's like wearing nothing (well, warmer). Really amazing.

The fit is nothing like Kiton.

Kiton is a very relaxed fit in the Neapolitan spectrum...while Isaia is more tight and sleek.

You mentioned that you like Gucci and some of the more modern designer brands...so you will probably love Isaia. Isaia has a very modern, slim, sleek silouette...uses fine materials...and are very well constructed.

The only thing similar in terms of fit, is that both Kiton and Isaia feel very light...but in this regard, Kiton feels much lighter. Isaia suits have some shoulder padding, while Kiton doesn't. Also Kiton is lighter because the materials they use start from Super 150s.

Kiton does have shoulder padding, though (albeit very light).

You could go to NM and try them on. But NM does not carry the Cary. Only the Stewart (now called Base S), the Victor, and the G Maxim.

I love them all.

When comparing 42 8R Kiton suit and 42 8R Stwert model Isaia suit, I think Kiton suits fit tighter than Isaia. Isaia is light but not as light as Kiton. Wearing Kiton jacket is really like wearing a cashmere cardigan.

Could you distinguish the Cary, the Victor, and the G Maxim silohuettes?
