    The Enrico model fit me perfectly. Figures they'd discontinue that one.

    Resurrection time!

    So if a jacket is labeled as "Base S" does that mean it was a part of a suit? That's neither A or G. I would've thought "S" meant "Suit", but then again, that would have to be a "J" to correspond with that, right?

    2 most popular Isaia models now are Base S and Base V....... actually most dept. stores only sell Base S, as Base V is too slim for most Americans.

    actually the S is trimmer than the Stewart, more open quarters and a bit less shoulder padding.

    I also have a blazer in the "Dustin" model - zero shoulder padding and very slim fit off the rack.

    Maybe I'm completely missing something when I read the posts, but has anyone been able to clarify if Base S mean it was part of a suit or not?

    No. recent Isaia suits/jackets no longer use names as their model names. The most popular model now is "Base S", less popular is "Base V", they apply to both suits and jackets. If you see anything that still has names as their model name such as "Stewart", "Vincent" or "Scott", they are at least 3 or 4 years old.

    I thought I had a Stewart but it turns out it's a Scott. The Scott is 31.5", the Base V is 31". The Base V has a higher buttoning stance and a trimmer fit than the Scott.

    I believe the difference between The Scott and Stewart is 2 buttons verses three buttons. Now a days it called "S" body.

    Is the S model supposed to be conservative? How low are the armholes and how non slim is it?

    The one I saw in b and s seems to have a higher button stance making the lapel not cover the chest pocket.

    Anyone familiar with the Maxim (G)? I purchased one from the Virtual Clotheshorse
    3 years ago. I love it. It has basically no padding. More recently, I got a Sirio
    model suit and had the small amount of padding reduced.

    I have found the current Base S model a bit skimpy with a shorter coat, at least at Saks.
    This may reflect the current "tight" clothing look preferred by the effete Milanese portrayed in the
    Sortorialist blog. Not for me. I wear 44R jacket and 35 waist trousers. That
    style would make me look like a sausage.

    Tried on Base S 44R at Barneys in SF this past weekend. Basically the Best fitting off the rack I've ever seen.

    Bump - anyone familiar w/ the Valerio model?

    I assume it may be one of the predecessors to the Base V model?

    I've lost track of Isaia models. They come and go too quickly for me.

    I've only started looking at Isaia models lately and I've only seen S and V model in stores.

    With that said I read something recently where Isaia has so many different models and names that no two stores will ever carry the same item. I need to find that article...

    Just bought the Isaia navy chalkstripe suit during the Gilt sale. Interesting enough, its tagged as "Base Gregory".

    What type of fit/cut does this imply? Does this mean this Isaia suit is 3/4 years old like another poster earlier in the thread suggested?
