    While looking at a number of Isaia suits at Barneys and Saks I noticed that a number of these are made in Switzerland, which struck me as odd. Is Zegna, which I know makes many of their suits there, manufacturing for Isaia?

    Thanks for the info.

    Off the top of my head I recall that one of my Zegna Napoli Couture suits was made in Switzerland.

    I also have a Made in Switzerland Zegna suit. My question remains does anyone know of any Zegna/Isaia relationship??

    I doubt one exists. Would it not make more sense that Isaia might have made Zegna suits?

    I haven't heard of any such relationship, or seen evidence of it yet. But this is most curious, I will keep my eyes open...

    Zegna is a company founded in Italy, Biella: the region were the best italian fabrics are made; fabrics are still made there: a few miles from Biella there is Ticino, the italian speaking part of Switzerland; Zegna has a big factory there, where they make suits; I know Italian tailors that work there. Why do they make there? I do not know, but I guess better taxes, just a few miles ...

    About Isaia I do not know: they should be about one thousend miles south ...
