    Antonio Liverano, Florentine tailor

    There are tailoring houses that claim to be all things to all men. To be a chameleon with shears. A gentleman shape-shifter. Antonio Liverano is not one of these. Signor Liverano's house style is very distinctive, among the most easily recognizable of today's internationally known tailors. And...

    Whitcomb and Shaftesbury

    I am seriously considering this outfit to make some new hard wearing, basic work work suits for me. They come to New York often, and offer a bespoke pattern with multiple fittings, cut in London, and sewed in India, for about 1,200 pounds. For me, this could fill a need. I don't really mind...

    Women's Bespoke?

    And now for something completely different: Women's bespoke tailoring. I know, I know...totally off topic for a men's clothing forum. However, my wife has expressed an interest in a custom/bespoke blazer, and I would like to buy her one. I'm in NYC, but so far having trouble finding info on...

    Bespoke Suits and Narrow Shoulders

    I've sold a lot of bespoke Savile Row suits and i'd say 85% have incredibly narrow shoulders. And with that said, i've never had a customer return one because it didn't fit. Can anyone explain this to me? They measure narrow but fit like a glove from what i've been told.

    Need Suggestions for First Plunge into Bespoke in the D.C. Area

    I’m ready to have a few key pieces made bespoke—a blazer and greys, and a navy or charcoal three-piece suit. I need to find a good bespoke value near the D.C. area. Ideally, I’d like to find something in the $1500-$2000 range (two-piece suit). While I know that I cannot expect miracles in...

    Bespoke Tailor: British Custom Tailors, Boston MA

    I recently came across an ad on Gilt for a special offer on a bespoke suit from British Custom Tailors in Wellesley, MA. They also seem to go by the name Custom Clothiers on their store front. Is anyone familiar with this firm that can speak to their quality? The offer is a bespoke suit, dress...

    Light or heavy flannel in a bespoke suit ?

    I recently tried to answer the question. 9 oz is definitely on the light side when it comes to classic flannel suits. In that category nothing can be sculptured and wears like a 14 oz "dry" flannel. The trouble is that most people find them to warm to wear. The idea and making of this paticular...

    Inconsistent MTM

    While I truly like all of the garments that I've bought from my MTM maker over the years, I find the small deviations in fit from one to another a bit troubling. I have specifically instructed that no changes were to be made to my pattern after we dialed it in around the third garment--one of my...

    Large behind - Made-to-measure pants in NYC?

    I apparently have a disproportionately large behind, which means typical pants, when I sit down, bunch up with a lot of room in the front (near the waist), but are uncomfortably tight in the crotch area. I tried on some non-iron advantage chinos from BB, but they didn't fit right. Even BB's...

    My First Order With Cordone 1956 Su Misura

    I happened upon a picture of a tie that I really liked, on tumblr, a few weeks ago. I decided I wanted it, and I tracked down the original blog post. It came from an Italian, Bespoke shirt and suit maker, by the name of, Cordone 1956. I found his website, linked in his blog post, and on his...

    Style for Thicker Body

    So I've recently focused a lot on improving my sense of style and wardrobe. I fell in love with the way Neal Caffrey and Roger Sterling dress. My issue is, that is completely not my body type. I recently lost 105 pounds and am pretty much at my ideal bodyweight (gained a good amount of muscle as...

    Cost of tailoring a suit at a top tailor? $300?

    I have been bringing all of my SF purchases to Centofani tailors (I know, Joe is gone, Luigi takes care of me). I have brought them lots of high dollar stuff such as Tom Ford and Kiton but I had not been there in a year or so. They do a pretty good job and understand pickiness and will keep...

    Best Country for Custom Suit AND Shoes

    I am in the process on planning a vacation and thought I would kill three birds with one stone. I will take the opportunity to purchase at least four suits and four pairs of shoes. I plan on spending around MAX 500 per suit, however, I would prefer to spend around 200-300. Shoes I was thinking...

    My first bespoke experience begins - Cleverley

    I met with George Glasgow today in New York and ordered my first pair of bespoke shoes. I was hoping to travel to Vienna to try out an Austro-Hungarian shoemaker but due to a very hectic family & work schedule I just don't see it happening any time soon. George comes to NY at least 2 times per...
