Two weeks ago, I escaped for two hours to the menswear tradeshow Pitti Uomo to discover bespoke tailor Liverano & Liverano and his famous Florentine style.
Antonio Liverano and his brother Luigi moved to Florence in 1948, at only 11 years old, to learn the craft of bespoke tailoring.
The first Liverano & Liverano workshop located on the street “Via Panzini” took place in the sixties. Today, Liverano & Liverano atelier is located on the street “Via dei Fossi” between Piazza Santa Maria Novella and the splendid river Arno.
Sales manager Takahiro Osaki, a stylish Japanese gentleman who has lived in Florence for 12 years, welcomed me in the store. He showed me the entire workshop and the new fabric rooms.
I had the chance to meet Antonio Liverano and observe him closely while he cut an overcoat made of ‘Casentino wool’, a fabric produced in the valley of Casentino, Tuscany. Master tailor Antonio Liverano carefully cuts all the garments by himself, demonstrating his passion and astute attention to detail.
Antonio Liverano exhibits his unique style defined by a half moon shape starting from the roll of the lapels to the curved open fronts. The jackets are uniquely soft, but not as unstructured as most Neapolitan tailors. Many times, these jackets have jetted-pockets, which gives them a casual look.
It was a sincere pleasure to discover their unique style and Antonio Liverano’s craftsmanship.
Take a look at my exclusive pictures of the Italian bespoke tailor, Liverano & Liverano.
