    Excellent!

    If the issue is still unresolved, this would at least put :foo: in physical proximity to possibly finesse a favorable result to the Ambrosi stalemate...

    Wonder if they'll bring over their band of tailors.

    When I was in Florence for Pitti, I stopped by Liverano and had a chat with Taka. He said there's a good chance that they'll travel to NYC once the shop is up and running.

    Interesting, thanks. I'm guessing it's the same nosebleed prices though.

    I hope this means we can now get access to Spigola/Koji Suzuki in the US......

    Yeah, I asked him a while ago if he was planning for another trip to the US. He said no, but I guess theArmoury will take care of that :)

    Yes, it will be intersting to see the USD pricing.

    Their Carmina prices have gone through the roof..........

    I think their range of goods and prices will amaze people. For opposite reasons though.

    If I had to guess, Liverano will be at least $5.0-$5.5K. WW Chan already comes over, so perhaps they'll just use the new store as a base.

    I believe it will be worth it as long as they get a good basis of loyal customers. if they can fight back the rents in Hong Kong then surely they can do the same in NYC.

    however, as a side chat, I don't think they make their main income from shopfront and online sales. I rarely see customers in the shop.
