    Picked up my Liverano ulster overcoat the other day, and I am extremely happy with the result.

    Gus,

    Saw the coat on instagram; it's even nicer full sized.

    Does anyone know the price of a Liverano jacket for those who visit his store in Italy for fittings, rather than those who attend his trunk shows?

    I'm guessing it's a lot cheaper than the co branded Armory trips.

    Actually I think it's the same. Or at least it was when I asked a year or so ago.

    That's still correct.

    Thanks for confirming.

    Wow... that's.... Erm... Expensive.

    Seems like it is even more than the more expensive end of Savile Row.
    I guess its a supply / demand thing then which you can't really argue with.

    Yes, L&L is among the most expensive, but the high end of SR (around 6000€) even more so.

    And, perhaps most importantly, I have never seen a single ill fitting garment from Liverano & Liverano (which is kind of amazing, given the number of photos shared by the amourers and other clients). I can not be say the same about the SR guys' work.

    It's obviously a supply and demand thing that is causing their prices to be so high, but I always wince when people make the argument "Oh the quality is so worth it"... That's just rationalisation. Takes about 40 hours to make a canvassed handmade suit and that's pretty much that - worse or best workman in the world is not gonna be much different either side.

    Better to just stick with the cold hard reality - many people want his services, In part now due to brand name aspect, so he can now charge whatever he wants.
