Bought these Isaia blazers from YOOX. Greenish one is size 36 from the Argento line. Light fabric in size 36.
Navy one is flannel (wool, silk and linen). Size 38, from basic main line in Gregorio body. Shoulders fit fine on both jackets. Navy one is very relaxed fit, I can easily fit 2 fists inside the jacket, but it still holds a very good shape. Sleeves obviously need to be adjusted on both.
Let me know what you think. Also what color shirt/pants would you wear with these. Thanks a bunch in advanced!

Both seem to fit you fine though the perspective of the photos is odd. Try taking the photo from chest height instead of waist level. That being said I am not a fan of the pattern of the first jacket’s cloth. I much prefer the second.

If you adjust the sleeve length, this is not bad at all. Not bad at all, I say. I quite like it.
There's some looseness in the back, but nothing that would offend. At least in the pictures.
I like the second cloth more, as well, but I prefer the length of the first one (appears longer).
As for shirt, nothing beats white or light blue, but if you deem it boring, perhaps a small check pattern might give it more life. You can find ample inspiration in the Photos section of the Isaia Facebook page.

I ordered another one from saks.
By far this one has the best fit and fabric. Perfect Neapolitan shoulders with shirring at the sleeve head. Button stance appear to be a bit low to me but other than that everything looks ok. Question is would you wear this color blazer? Depending on the lighting the color looks anywhere from grey to red to me. I really don’t see any brown in this jacket. But again I’m colorblind maybe it is brown.
If the red is anywhere close to maroon I coupd rock it with Virginia Tech tie or an orange pocket square. That’d make a cool signature blazer I wouldn’t mind wearing to a casual business setting.
The front of the jacket and lapels were creased up pretty bad so it definitely need to be professionally hand pressed.

That appears to be a burgundy + grey + black. It doesn't really look like it needs a pressing - also, you'd be surprised at how often letting it hang on a hanger for a couple days will sort out wrinkles from shipping.

Any grey trouser would work - light or mid or charcoal are all viable. You an also go with jeans and an oxford shirt to skew casual
