    Made by the factory that makes Isaia which also happens to be owned by Isaia. Why people (not you) see the need to call out a disti ction here, I have no idea.

    Haven't seen if this was answered yet, but these denalis are re-issues of the jackets worn on the trans Antartica trip, hence the patches.

    Really? Why do they have the same factory label?

    The parent company has a factory for private label and diffusion lines, and another factory for Isaia.

    But I'm no expert—that's just what the creative director of Eidos posted once after he kept seeing people say "made by Isaia"—so I'll bow out here.

    haha I read Koala saying "i don't know why people need to call out the distinction" and knew that the next post would be from Chet. Love it.

    Today I learned that a VW is the same as an Audi, which is the same as a Lamborghini or a Bugatti because they're all owned by the same parent company.

    IMO you'd have something better because the Bimmer would be more fun to drive.
