Liverano & Liverano

I'm a big fan of Liverano & Liverano's tailoring style.  Being an American with traditional tastes, I find Liverano & Liverano quite appealing.  Italian tailoring, English tailoring, and American Ivy Style all have very defining characteristics, but Liverano & Liverano have a wonderful blend of my favorite styles.  Perhaps I am more of a aficianodo of Florence than I thought.  The front darts (seams shaping the front) are moved to the side providing an uninterupted and clean front quarter. 

As much as I enjoy a nice nipped waist, I enjoy a clean front even more.  I prefer the pinstripe, check, or plaid to be whole and continuous.  The bent pinstripe caught in the gravitational pull of a front dart can, at times, appear sloppy and out of place.  With that being said, I know their are great tailors that can minimize or completely erase the effect of the front dart, but there are many that seems to pay no attention to the aesthetic disruption.  Well, here are a few images from Liverano & Liverano's webpage.  I hope you enjoy!!
