    I don't know but I do know my mum used to wear them do to the gardening in when I was a kid. They'll be on eof the more regrettable trends from this years Pitti I predict.

    I hope you guys ask Barbera tough questions like, "Now that you have sold to Ciro Paone, will Carlo Barbera fabrics be available for bespoke or only for Kiton RTW?"

    Can you check if Liverano has any plans to visit the US (by that I mean NYC)? Are his prices really 4k euro per suit?

    Any other questions for signor Liverano? Maybe of more general interest?

    Love the left one!
    What shades they are? I guess Cognac (Left) and Vegano (Right) ?

    How should someone go about deciding which tailor to use?
    What's your favorite cloth for a 3 season business suit?

    Didn't like those Church's... Better before the classic ones.

    Had a great interview with Liverano. Got a lot of pics too, will post some soon. A very elegant and interesting man.

    I will write more, but the answer is yes, he is very interested in coming to the US, and trying to find the right way to enter. If you might be interested, I would definitely contact him, tell him where you are, and just say that you have interest, and that you heard on SF that he was considering trips to the US.

    I'll add too - I didn't ask about prices, but they are surely high. And they deserve high prices, as the work they do is really outstanding. Very very beautiful clothing.

    A few pictures - the man himself, looking spectacular in an orange odd waistcoat. Taka, in an absolutely amazing overcoat.

    At the risk of sounding very picky, Signor Liverano's waistcoat looks to be too short.

    To the best of my knowledge, Liverano's high prices are fairly recent (about the time of their partnership with The Armoury). When I was in Florence in 2009, Taka quoted me 2,500 euros for a two-piece suit in Harrison's fabric.

    From what I can tell from Tommy Ton's pics, the practice of carrying gloves in the breast pocket in the freezing cold is making a strong comeback.

    Remember this guy from last year, and like his coat:

    To be fair, it hasn't been that cold. I haven't worn an overcoat the past two days. Also inside the buildings it can be really hot.

    That seems to be one of the more disturbing trends in menswear (yes, even more than some of the horrors we've seen in Pitti street photography).

    I'm sure the suits are nice. And if they were 2500 EUR, I'd happily order one when I'm in Florence this spring.

    Unless they're all stitched with gold thread, what I've seen can't justify that price tag. They're nice but not that that nice.
