Best of the Best 2013: Men’s Fashion: Sportswear: Isaia

Gianluca Isaia, the owner and president of the Italian menswear brand Isaia, introduced his first full sportswear collection this year and delivered superbly cut slacks and sport coats with trims, linings, and pocket details on a par with those of his superbly cut suits. Inspired by the chapel of San Gennaro in Naples, Isaia selected warm colors reminiscent of a fading fresco, such as soft green and burnt red, for luxurious knitwear and casual pieces. This washed-suede shirt jacket ($2,495)—shown with Isaia’s cashmere sweater ($1,850), shirt ($395), jeans, ($495), and leather boots ($995)—is an especially good example of fine tailoring in a casual piece.
