What distinguishes the Liverano & Liverano cut?
The Liverano & Liverano aesthetic remains true to the Florentine tradition of tailoring. The Liverano jacket is clean and refined, constructed using a single angled side dart. It features a soft, sloped, and ever so slightly extended shoulder, the sleeve head is clean and connects to a full and curved sleeve to accommodate the arm at rest or in motion. The chest is full, yet without excess drape, and has a generous lapel and low breast pocket. The waist is gently tapered and the skirt sits close to the hips with delicately open quarters, all of which makes for a trim, restrained silhouette. The trousers are always pleated with a medium rise and cuffed opening. The proportions of a Liverano & Liverano garment ensure a masculine and elegant silhouette.

How should I care for my garment?
Just like us, suits need rest. We suggest that your suits be worn in rotation with other garments to prevent premature signs of wear and tear. We suggest ordering an extra pair of trousers to get the most life and value out of your suit. At the end of the day, or when you’re not wearing your jacket, it should be hung on the hanger provided in order to retain the shape of the shoulder. Hang trousers from the leg opening, using the pleat as a guide. If hanging trousers half-folded over the crossbar, be sure to carefully match the pleats down the leg line.
Should I dry clean my suits?
The best way to care for your suit after use is to hang it in an area with good air circulation. The air will pass through the fabric and naturally remove odors. Hanging your suit will also allow the natural fibers to relax, which will remove the wrinkles. Also, steam is a natural way to remove both odors and wrinkles – you can use a steamer or hang your garments in the bathroom while you shower. For stains, we suggest spot treating the fabric with cold sparkling water. Use a reputable dry cleaner only if the above methods do not work to remove odors or stains.
Should I dry clean my shirts?
The best way to care for shirts is to wash them at home on a gentle cycle, hang them to dry, and iron with medium heat. An iron that is too hot will burn the fabric which will result in an unpleasant sheen.
What is canvas, and how is it used? What is a floating canvas?
Canvas is a natural material used to shape the front part of a jacket. Floating canvas construction is canvas that is sewn inside the front part of a garment (rather than glued), which adds structure to the front panels and ensures that the jacket drapes properly and conforms to the wearer’s body shape over time.
What does shape and drape refer to?
“Shape” (“Linea” in Italian) refers to the contours of a garment – one of the most common words pronounced inside our sartoria. “Drape” refers to extra fabric that is usually placed in the upper front and back part of the torso in order to emphasize the shoulder and chest. The excess fabric also aids in freedom of movement, thus creating a more comfortable garment.
What does “front quarters” refer to?
A jacket’s quarters refer to one of the four parts composing the body of the jacket. The front quarters are two of the most expressive parts of the entire garment.
