For Isaia, what do the letters mean after the model?

For instance, how does a Sirio A differ from a Sirio G?

Pretty specific / boring question but hopefully someone will know.

Thanks,
Cantab

That's a very good question, Cantabrigian; I've wondered the same thing. In addition, can someone explain how the other designations and models of Isaia differ from one another, such as the Enrico, Scott, Trent, and Cary lines, etc.?

The Enrico has a squarish-looking but not stiff shoulder

The pants are (generally) flat front.

I'm afraid I'm not much help on the others you asked about.

FWIW, I remember seeing a model book when I was considering a MTM Isaia a couple years ago.
I think it was at Saks.
(sorry, I can't be of more help)

My Stewart model suit is trim and lean, high armholes and waist with moderate suppresion. It has some extremely light padding on a very natural shoulder line.

The 'Base S' jacket I have is still lean through the chest with a natural shoulder line (again with very light padding), but the cut through the waist is more full.

Also, in Isaia "A" stands for suit and "G" means jacket. That's also a good way to spot if someone is trying to pass off an orphaned suit jacket.

That is really good info, I've been wondering about that lately. Cheers.

That's exact oppsite to my experience, Stweart model, along with Scott , were more generously cut ( wider shoulders and lower armholes) than any other Isaia models. I also own Enrico A. model , its a bit slimmer on the shoulders and higher armholes, while Vincent is the slimmest models of all.

Of course all these are moot, becuase they now mostly make either "Base S" or "Base V" model. Base S is more cut generously while Base V is cut slim.

From the horse's mouth: "Our suits are currently presented in two models: S body (Sirio) and V body (Vesuvio). The S body is the revised model of the Stewart. If you were pleased with the Stewart, you will be absolutely amazed by the fitting of the Sirio. The V body instead is the the traditional Napolitan sartorial model which is characterized by a rope shoulder and makes your chest look fuller."

The S-Body pulls at the chest more than the Stewart on my frame. The Stewart used to fit me perfectly, but as I have lost weight it's no longer perfect off the rack. Still the closest I can come for the money when I can find one.

Not sure if that's universally applied. I just picked up an Isaia suit from Tokyo and the model is "Base G" as show on the inside pocket lable. The fit is short and slim with soft, but ropped shoulders. Perhaps a Japan only model?
