Thanks,

Have a great trunk show, and say hi to the lads from me.

Well I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr. Liverano and Taka-san at the LeatherFoot trunk show yesterday.  It was a real privilege.  It was thoroughly enjoyable speaking with individuals who have such tremendous knowledge of and passion for their craft. I am grateful to LeatherFoot and others who organize such events and afford the opportunity for joe-guy-on-the-street like me to meet and learn from some of the top players in their respective fields.

Antonio and Taka sure are true gentlemen! Did you order anything?

Alas, no.  I have yet to embrace the bespoke experience in either suits or shoes.  I don't see it happening in shoes, frankly, but a bespoke suit is definitely something I will pursue one day.

Hey guys,

 

Just a quick note that Antonio, Taka, and Qemal are back in town this weekend to take orders and to do fittings.  Check out this overcoat in the first fitting stage!  The thing is amazing.

Never actually seen you in a picture Roger, did not notice your post until now, great to finally get a face to your e-mail address and SF nick. smile.gif Very sharp outfit by the way. Visiting Liverano on September 30th, I can barely wait. First fitting! You should give it a try too, before Antonio retires (have no idea when that will be though, that generation seems to work into their 100th birthday smile.gif).

Just saw this piece on Bloomberg about Liverano.

$7200 for a 2 piece suit. eek.gif

Seems like par for the course, no? Len Logsdail charges in the same neighborhood.
post #85 of 106
Last time I looked into logsdail his suits were closer to 5k. Have they gone up that much?
post #86 of 106
I heard somewhere starting in the $6k range, so just a tad bit less than Liverano. I'm obviously not talking from firsthand experience, but $7,200 for Liverano seems fair all things considered. Still too rich for my blood biggrin.gif

Fairness and utility are subjective. But I will say there is a big 'Armoury' premium at work here - Liverano's prices prior to their associatioon with The Armoury were much cheaper.

Ditto Ambrosi.
post #88 of 106
Yes, you're correct, it is subjective. I forgot to put 'IMO' in my previous post. I wasn't trying to speak for others. The 'Armoury' premium definitely makes sense.

I think $7200 puts them at the top of the market. Camps de Luca might be there. Fioravanti as well, but I can't think of anyone else. I've never seen one in person, but the pictures strike me as beautiful and unique enough to play in that space. I don't think it would look good on me, but if I loved it is certainly be willing to pay a premium to get it 4 blocks away as opposed to flying to Florence. Just like Koji Suzuki. However, if they do the Neapolitan thing and charge tourists more than locals, then nfw.

Visiting with Liverano & LIverano on Tuesday for my first fitting, and picking out some new materials for ties for the coming SS season. So psyched!
