    I did not say that the prices came up because of a quality increase and we are in agreement about the extra demand impact on prices. However, in spite of the price increase, they always seem to deliver, which, in comparison to some who charge the same or more, is not always the case. Call it what you want, but that is a very important fact.

    For anyone interested: Liverano shirts (available at the Armory) are a little on the slim side compared to Borrelli royal collection and a little more generous than Barba gold label. Fabrics are amazing and the hand sewing is everywhere. I get the feeling from comparing them with my other shirts that they might be using Borrelli to make them - lots of similarities.

    And as an aside - the Liverano scarves are made by 19 Andrea's 47 (available from Exquisite Trimmings). I have both and they are identical fabric weaves and have the same manufacturing tag (though obviously Liverano's has their tag on it too). Amazing hand feel.

    The shirts are not made by Borrelli, it's another maker they use.

    As for the scarfs: they have scarfs made by Andrea's1947 and then they have scarfs made by another maker, with their own designs (like the donut scarfs they had a couple of seasons ago).

    I have the doughnut scarf and it has an identical fabric label to the Andrea's lollipops scarf.

    By any chance do you know who makes the Liverano shirts?

    Ok, then probably Andrea's makes those scarves too, interesting.

    Sorry, don't know the name of the maker of the shirts.

    Should have skipped the vest if it means not enough cloth to finish the pants

    OK, so ignoring most everything AY says, Liverano will be back in town at our NYC location the 29th - 31st. For any questions or appointments, you can shoot me a PM, email us at nyc (at) thearmoury (dot) com, or call us at 646.613.7613.

    I put up a quick post of his garments in various fitting stages if anyone's interested, here. Also, you can always feel free to stop by just to chat if you're interested, although this week in NY seems like it's not going to be a fun one.

    Below, one of the cooler details I've seen in my short career of working in this industry.

    What's wrong with his pants? The style seems appropriate for his age.

    Too. Short. They are too short.

    That amount for shortness is acceptable for no one.

    I'm also not a fan of the excessive taper/tightness. But the shortness is just wrong. Too much blogs.

    I have no idea who makes the scarves, but in general that two things are made from the same fabric does not imply that they are from the same maker.

    To be fair, I think there is a stylistic difference between Europeans and Americans, Americans who seem to prefer their shoes drowning in cloth.
    I see nothing wrong with the trouser length above.

    Lets not pretend that the only alternative to showing your ankle and half of your lower leg is having your shoes drowning in cloth.



    The shortypants thing is a new (and awful) phenomena on either side of the pond. Looks like the offender outgrew his suit.

    You are right of course - but Andreas claim to fame is their antique machine that weaves their exclusive fabric
