Latest from the blog


Small details from Liverano and Liverano bespoke garments.

Custom fabric and buttons.

The fabric in particular is one of the cooler things I’ve seen in my short career in this industry. The best I can explain is that it’s the heaviest, densest wool hopsack that you can imagine. A lot of people talk about vintage fabric but what about fabric made especially for you? Pretty cool.

Liverano trunk show in NYC this Thursday - Saturday, appointments can be made with or 646 613 7613

The Liverano jacket in every stage of the process.

At top, an incredible navy hopsack (more on this later) in the first fitting stage.  At this point, everything is basted, there is no lining, pockets haven’t been cut, and only one sleeve is loosely attached.  It’s really somewhat of a “test garment” as most areas of the jacket have allowance that make it possible for significant alterations.

In the middle is a really unique orange-red donegal at the second fitting stage.  I was surprised how much I enjoyed this jacket (especially with RD’s choice of fawn flannel trouser).  At this point in the process, the garment starts to take shape.  Shoulders are more dialed in, details like pockets are added, a lining is tacked in, and the lapels start to form.  Although you begin to see the finished jacket, there is still so much more than has to happen in terms of finishing and ironing before it’s completed.

Lastly, a green herringbone in it’s finished state.  Pictures don’t really do it justice as it’s the fit that should stand out.  But a quick scan shows the unique setting of the sleeve, the lapels that have yet to break, and the incredibly clean finishing of the lapel and buttonholes.

I’m excited for our clients to start taking delivery of the first Liverano garments.

Trunk show in NYC starting this Thursday! Stay warm NYC!


Solid stick umbrellas are, as you’d imagine, incredibly simple.  They’re really only compromised of four main elements - the stick, the steel ribs, the canopy, and the metal bits like the slide, springs, and rosettes.

So why can’t you find a solid stick umbrella at your local grocery store? Although the value does lie in sourcing high quality components, the technique of shaping is really what’s difficult.

Very simply, it’s not unlike learning how to make an umbrella 50 times over.  Every raw material reacts differently.  Oak can’t be treated the same way as chestnut when heated and bamboo must be finished much differently than hazel.  

Learning and mastering the technique for each raw material takes a long time and that’s really what sets them apart.

That and the fact that they are really beautiful and strong.

Fox Umbrella and Frank Clegg.

Huw from Fox Umbrellas is in town tomorrow to take orders for custom umbrellas.  Above are two of my custom orders.

The first is an oak solid stick umbrella, cut 1 inch shorter for me, with a colquhoun tartan canopy.  It’s one of my favorite things that I own.

The second a duffle in chestnut leather with an additional pocket added to the outside, straps slightly angled, and my initials placed discretely on the inside.
