I checked the accounts of Liverano for 2023, which are not under their real name so a tad convoluted. The margins are surprisingly low, so even though Veblen may be what happens at revenue level, at the end they need such ridiculous high pricing to survive. For your reference, in 2023 they made only 18'000 EUR profit, down from 30'000 EUR of 2022.
It is a very low number at a headline level indeed. Is the net profit after paying themselves? and if so, how much?

Can be a convoluted business structure, like in Hollywood

Vittorio Salino tweed jacket.

I prefer bolder and more colouful tweed patterns, but a grey herringbone donegal is certainly very versatile. I don't like to see a tee peeking under the shirt.

Looks like a Florentine Ivy sack jacket, which is kind of cool to me.

I’m not sure what it is, but those shoulder look sad to me. Sadder than other Florentine tailors.
Simon has a very sloped shoulders, so a jacked with unconstructed shoulders looks sad 🤷

Boola Boola! I didn't go to Yale, but was at another Ivy school- Cornell
during the heyday. Except for the patch pockets and slightly wider lapel
it looks identical the mid-century Ivy style.

Having seen that jacket worn in person, I’d say it did look rather good, in terms of overall fit, proportions and choice of cloth. The lack of waist suppression wasn’t something I noticed but I agree that may be something to tweak based on these photos.
