Shirt Book

Sewing, cutting, and basting, one button at a time, and then sewing again.
When you wear an ISAIA shirt you feel the tradition, care and skill required to make it.
The shirt sleeve drops as smoothly as espresso coffee flowing into a cup.
The buttons slip into the buttonholes as naturally as the sea enters the harbor.
Just as the narrow streets of Naples surround visitors with rich history and beauty,
our shirts envelope the body with traditional Neapolitan craftsmanship and style.
The man in an ISAIA shirt hears, “You’re wearing an exquisite shirt.”

STUNNING COLORS

Wearing ISAIA Shirts is a pleasure because they follow
the figure and perfectly fit at the collar, thanks to the
fabric cut at a 60 degree angle and the pleated collar
stay pockets.
Moreover, the collar stays can be easily removed to make
washing and ironing easier and to avoid problems such
as marks or shiny outlines.

LINO MISTO

HAND- SEWN
TRAVETTO

The sleeve placket is one of the most delicate areas of a
shirt. To protect it from tears or ripped seams, each
ISAIA shirt is reinforced with a hand-stitched bar from
traditional Neapolitan tailoring.

SCIAMMÈRIA

'MOUCHE' WITH
PERSONALITY

A signature element on every ISAIA shirt is the mouche,
which is a unique detail of Neapolitan couture tailoring.
The mouche is a cotton or taffeta triangle that unites the
front and back of the shirt and reinforces the hem.
The last ISAIA touch is the coral logo that makes these
shirts even more unique and original.
