Antonio Liverano, Florentine tailor - Page 3post #31 of 1836/24/13 at 7:08am
Styleforum Top Pickspost #32 of 1838/26/13 at 6:36pmI like the looks of these garments very much. I find it rather interesting that, with L&L's extremely open quarters, you tend to see a bit of belt buckle and shirt above the waist sometimes (including in one of the pictures of Mr. Liverano himself). I recently started a thread on this very topic in which most of the commentators acted as if this exposed shirt and waistband were a sin comparable to wearing short socks—in this context there is nary a mention of it.post #33 of 1838/27/13 at 1:20amQuote:Originally Posted by The Louche

Well, this is how it looks on me, and I don't have any problem with it, but to each his own of course:post #34 of 1838/27/13 at 12:17pmpost #35 of 1838/27/13 at 12:20pmpost #36 of 1838/27/13 at 9:44pmI do not like the super open quarters which is a trademark of the Liverano cut.
To me, it almost looks like to type of jacket worn with a kilt:

That's just another way of saying that you'd like the quarters more closed. And that's fine / probably a good idea.
But you can have quarters that are very rounded without showing off your belt buckle. This is the sort of thing I have in mind. Not a great example but hopefully conveys the idea.
(from jeffreyd's blog)
On the Liverano example, you keep the button exactly where it is but each side of the fronts extends further. You have a bit more overlap, the same shape to the quarters and no visible belt.post #41 of 1838/28/13 at 12:15pm
I's saying that it's fine, it's just his stance and the angle that brings even more attention to that. You focused on the wrong part of what I said, the first part was just diplomatic.
Quote:but his stance (the Angelina leg stance) is going to interfere on our judgement as the camera angle (lower than his waist and pointed up). Probably looks fine otherwise.post #42 of 1838/28/13 at 1:34pmpost #43 of 1838/28/13 at 3:46pmpost #44 of 1839/16/13 at 11:53amAutumn is (finally) here in Sweden, and I got to wear my Liverano tweed again and took a new picture. Quarters are certainly very open (it is a major feature of the Liverano house cut after all), but it was my stance before makng the belt visible. This is more how it normally looks:
But again, I don't have any problem with an exposed waistband or belt. In fact, I'm going back to Florence in October to pick up a couple of more Liveranos
