Leviner Wood Custom Tailors and Shirtmakers is 25 years old! Wow! I can’t believe it. How did we make it this far? How will we make it the next 25?

Experience: that’s a given. We must be doing something right to have so many wonderful repeat clients.

Listen: always. We won’t push product on you. It hasn’t been made yet. We’ll listen to what you want and suggest ways that we can make it happen. And then ask for your input again.

Personal Service: it’s a dying art. We understand our clothing — we’ve studied how it gets made and how to build it so that it shows you at your best. Then we deliver. Yes, mistakes sometimes (rarely, to be honest) happen, but we make them right (see: Experience and Listen, above.)

Our mission has never been just to make you a great suit. It’s to make you feel great in that custom suit built just for you, in the style you like. If you believe that you’ve experienced any of this first hand, please “Like” us on Facebook, and forward this post to someone who will benefit from working with Leviner Wood. We’re accepting a few new clients this month.

Weekend Warrior


It used to be a derogatory term “weekend warrior,” sort of like “armchair quarterback.” I imagine that 18 month deployments by reservists and the National Guard troops may have changed that. I like to think so.

So, too, the idea that weekends are made for living in sweats. Hanging around the house? OK. Out in public? Other than the gym? Not so much. There comes a time in man’s life when he should look as good off-duty as he does slaying corporate dragons. WWJBD? What would James Bond do?

Something like the things above, albeit with an ankle holster.

A custom sport coat with a deep eggplant windowpane that is brought out with a pair of custom, well-fitted flat front, deep brown corduroy trousers, a quarter-zip marled brown sweater and a custom blue and brown check shirt. Throw in a pair of brown leather wingtip boots and you’ll look better than 99% of the men out there with little or not effort. Short of the polar vortex sitting over us, a scarf and some gloves will be all you need to go from car to bar. Add a Barbour coat or your topcoat when temps plunge lower than your date’s neckline.

Because a weekend warrior never gives in when he knows he can win.
