    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    You have right.
    For exemple,today in Naples ( especially foreigners customers) ask for soft cut,spalla camicia and so.
    So the tailors fof Neapolitan structurate school (the Blasi School) make they too spalla a camicia,soft interiors...
    And is a pity.
    Liverano and Cappelli's coats have the darts,but are slanted darts,diagonals from the pockets to the armpit.
    Is a type of dart clean and pleasent,i agree.

    Believe one of my granddads coats was cut this way. He spoke of the competition for bringing these coats up to meet the new standard for them. Regional and individual competition. The lowly lounge put tailors imagination to work. Maybe it would be like trying to make a snowboarder coat into a business coat?

    Liverano (and Cappelli) look is very close to the Italian look of 1950s,that had in Florence many great exponents (Nativo,Rettori,Speciale,Di Preta,Rossella,Giuntini,Maltagliati the young,De Vita,Franchi).

    Does he always do extended shoulders? It kinda intensifies the overall silhouette of the jacket.
