This hasn't been my experience at all when trying Isaia on. What, in particular, did you observe?NOOOO... Beward of the GianLuca Napoli line -- I had the displeasure of trying one on at Stonestreets the other day (guy tried to pass it off as an "Ees-eye-ee-ah". Â The only word I can think of to describe it is "crap." (Well, I could use worse words, but I don't want to get banned by J.).
Now I understand, and I agree. My Isaia suit is the regular line, the real deal; my Isaia sportcoat, on the other hand, is this GianLuca whatever 100% cashmere, fused and overpriced, nice nonetheless, but too bad for the company's image.GianLuca Napoli is a diffusion line, not to be confused with Isaia. Â Fused, machine made stuff. Â Decent (even good) fabrics but the construction quality is iffy.
It's not bad for what it is, but also way overpriced for what it is. Â I have a couple of their sport coats that I got very good deals on. Â I wouldn't buy more unless they were screamingly good bargains.
Ugh, that's bad. That means they changed the only good thing about that line - early on they had a very soft, unpadded shoulder...The Gianluca Napoli line is not only diffusion, but it doesn't seem to me to have any of the details that make Isaia so great. Shoulders are fairly well-padded, and are more bulbous and round than sloped and sharp.
