Isaia, one of the world's few remaining Neapolitan sartorial

brands, and high-end mens boutique Jeffrey New York have partnered on

an exclusive new limited edition lifestyle collection. Designed by

fashion icon Jeffrey Kalinsky and produced by the masters of

handcrafted, sartorial menswear, the collection combines Jeffreys

The centerpiece of the collection is the J-body, Jeffreys exclusive

suiting design. Available in Isaias exclusive grey and navy Aquaspider

water-and-wrinkle resistant wool, and a tan glen plaid (90% cashmere,

10% wool), these garments employ all of the traditional Neapolitan

craftsmanship such as hand-sewn buttonholes, pockets, floating chest

piece and linings. Rounding out the collection are solid blue and white

Sea Island cotton shirts designed with a more suppressed fit and

straight collar, as well as silk ties in a custom width. Isaia, which

recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, marries romanticism and

perfection, which come to think of it applies equally well to Jeffrey.
