As I wait for April to roll around to see my first Isaia suit, I was browsing online and came across this online auction with excellent detailed photos. Thought it would be interesting to share. I think this gives a pretty good "picture" of what you get in an Isaia, the details, and what the label looks like. The markdown isn't as steep as what I'd like to see (in order to recommend to another styleforum member).

Is that a newer line Isaia, I haven't seen the red label before.

I recently purchased a couple of Isaia sportsjackets (Stewart model) and although they did not have the red labels, the lining was a similarly rich, red color. Schwing!

You know, I don't think that that's a bad price at all for that suit. It has a great-looking, typically-Neapolitan cut, and, in Super 140s, is just a helluva fine suit, in my opinion. The seller certainly hasn't exaggerated the retail price on it. I've seen lots of new Isaia suits in slightly lower-quality wool going for $700 and up on eBay. If you could get it at around $900, it would be very good deal. (Disclaimer: I have no relationship with the seller and no vested interest whatsoever.)

The BIN is 60% off, not too bad.
