Making It Yours: Detailing

One of the most fun things about custom clothing is making it yours. Subtle (or not so subtle, we won’t judge….) details really make a difference and seen or unseen contribute to the garment’s personality and wearability.

Take your lining, for example. You may choose a complimentary color, an exotic pattern, a full, half or quarter lined coat. Leviner Wood also offers a totally unconstructed jacket that wears more like a sweater.

Peak, or notch lapel? Your choice. Shawl collars are always available on formal wear, too.

Care for a ticket pocket? Flapped? Slanted? Besom (jetted instead of flapped)?

Collar felt can match, compliment or contrast. A great place to show school spirit…

Or remember that special date.

Even a buttonhole can have a little personality, or show your true colors.

How will you make your Leviner Wood custom clothes your own?

Customizing Custom

One of the most fun experiences you can have with custom is doing something that isn’t readily available off-the-rack. Take the trousers above. Donegal tweed, good for weekends, Friday casual, and any day when the thermometer plunges (we’re looking at you, Polar Vortex.) But that doesn’t mean you have to stop with the more than a dozen shades of this very comfortable cloth. How about adding some durability and a little pop of custom? Nubuck accents along the pockets are great for protecting stress points (particularly if you clip anything to your pockets — pens, pocket knife, flashlight, etc.) I tend to match the color of the boots or gloves I’d wear, but you don’t have to — there are plenty of flecks of color in Donegal tweed to bring out.

Call Larry today and have a little fun.
