    I 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.

    Well, this is how it looks on me, and I don't have any problem with it, but to each his own of course:

    I think it looks very nice—great, in fact. I think I need to get over listening to every out-modes opinion I read. Maybe it's just something about Flusser that makes me think his decrees are to be taken without question.

    I think it'd look better if the fronts overlapped a bit more at the buttoned button. The quarters could have the same shape but then you wouldn't see any belt.

    The buttoned button looks fine, the bottom one is a bit too open, 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.

    I think it looks great on you. It is distinctive and compliments your frame. Wear it!

    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.

    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.

    It's not just how he's standing. Liverano likes him some open quarters.

    Both are walking and the one on the right is a MTM Orazio Luciano. The following are Liverano's.

    Autumn 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 :D
