Isaia Suits

    Technology and tradition converge in the Isaia factory, located in the Casalnuovo region of Naples, where the brand’s tailored clothing is mostly made in an industrial manner using the latest in modern machinery and later finished entirely by hand. Once known for producing suits for some of the biggest brands in menswear, Isaia’s own signature silhouette is cut in the classic Neapolitan manner—soft shoulders, trim-cut waist, high-cut armholes—but with a more youthful, contemporary expression than other Naples-based tailoring giants. Isaia is also well-known for continuously tweaking the mold of the classic sport coat. For spring there are no less than eight new models in the collection, including the soft-shouldered Gregory produced from the brand’s proprietary water- resistant Aquacashmere, and a shapely new version of the contemporary shirt jacket.

    Inside Information
    When the company was founded in 1957, brothers Enrico and Corrado Isaia made their mark by creating machine-made, private-label suits for Italian shops. Enrico’s son, Gianluca, forged the firm’s new luxury identity by targeting a younger American audience with more affordably priced handmade suits under its own label.
