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.”

THE TRADITION

A LINEAGE OF ARTISANS

Each ISAIA dress shirt takes an individual tailor over two
hours to produce. Fabrics are painstakingly vetted and cut.
Collars are attached by hand. Buttons and buttonholes
are individually sewn. Piece by piece, our expert craftspeople
create beautiful garments that reflect our rich sartorial
heritage in every stitch.

THE CONSTRUCTION

A HUMAN TOUCH IN EVERY STITCH

From collar to gusset, key elements of our dress shirts are sewn, cut
and completed by hand. Even the smallest details are rendered with care
and expertise. You can feel it when you slip one on. The way the collar
sits firmly under your lapel. The way the shoulder adapts to motion and
doesn’t tug. The way the shirt’s body follows yours. It’s what gives our
dress shirts the effortless fit and feel that we believe defines true luxury.

THE ITALIA

THE TRADITIONAL
FIT

A quintessentially Neapolitan silhouette. The Italia offers the
traditional armhole height—high but not constricting—and a generous
shoulder-to-shoulder that allows for freedom-of-movement while
providing a clean, jacket-ready presentation.

An adaptation of The Italia for those who prefer a
more modern fit. With its trimmer sleeve, high armhole
and more compact shoulder-to-shoulder fit, The Mix 
shirt offers an elegant, contemporary-leaning silhouette.

THE FIT

A VERY SLIM FIT

Designed for the thinnest body type. The Fit silhouette

high armholes, a slim chest and tapered body.

    '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.
