    Quite the iconic Liverano silhouette with the iconic rounded front )( -- though I've seen a few pieces where the quarters/front have a less pronounced )( which leads me to think that they might not necessarily cut the quarters that way all the time?

    Is the chest cut rather lean?

    Thanks everyone! I'm obviously very happy with how it came out.

    Not very lean. Actually, my NSMs are leaner, as strange as that may sound.

    I really, really like the jacket. However, your pants are way too short. Brings the total look from potential awesome to fail in my book. But that's an easy fix...

    (If you can see someone's socks when they're standing, something is wrong in my book)

    Thanks. The pants are actually not as short as they came out in these pictures, don't know what happened.

    It does look like you are standing a bit off.. You can tell by the creases in the pants.

    Hmm. Maybe you have them cut so they're "just right" when standing at military attention, but they do this when you stand naturally. An extra 1/2"+ wouldn't hurt in either case. But anyway obviously up to you.

    Just seen these photos, the finished garment looks fantastic. I would stick to L&L if I were you, maybe one day I will get a chance to try them.

    Does Liverano & Liverano cut different lapel styles or does he not like to deviate from his notch lapel?

    He prefers to stick to the house style, i.e. notch lapel, for SB jackets.

    I like the cut of the suit, however, I would like to have a less rounded front and a different shaped lapel. I understand what is negotiable varies from tailor to tailor. Based on your experience would you say he would be willing to accommodate these requests or should I simply go to another tailor?

    In that case I would go to a different tailor. My experience from working with different tailors is that as soon as you ask them to deviate from their house style, the end result will not be as you were hoping. Find a tailor with a house style you like, then you can tweak the details. As for Liverano, since I like the house style (the reason I went there to start with), I let him do his thing completely.
