Welcome Back

HeyHeyUVA

Students are arriving, a truly beautiful summer is ending, and now it’s time to show your school spirit. Especially if you prefer your shirts to be custom-made instead of straight from the bookstore.

This photo doesn’t do it justice, but look closely enough and you’ll see the orange and blue of one of our more vocal local universities. Prefer blue and red? Purple and gold? Green and gold? Burgundy and orange? Black and gold? We’ve done those too. Order one today and show your school colors today for the start of the football season!

Personality.

You don’t wear a tie that often. Pocket squares are for men who wear sport coats and suits. You might be in an office casual environment all the time. But you still can express a bit of personality. You paid enough for the shoes, might as well show them off a bit with some socks that are something other than blue or black.

And yes, those that we’ve selected to carry at Leviner Wood go with khaki, gray, blue and black trousers. It’s simply a question of asking yourself how much personality will I show today? A little? Grey and black stripe. A lot? Blue argyle.

C’mon, live a little. Patterned cotton dress socks by Byford.

Cool Comfort

It wasn’t until the 1980′s that all suits were fully lined. Somehow, we associated a full lining with better quality garments. Not necessarily true. Lining can hide a lot of sins.

These seams are beautifully finished.

And wouldn’t you like a jacket that you could chuck around like a shirt? One that wears as comfortably and keeps you cooler since there is minimal lining to trap hot air?

These unlined jackets and suit coats are still handsomely made. Look at the hand stitching on the canvassed chest piece. That looseness allows for more movement of the material. It moves with you instead of standing away from the body. Result? Comfort and with time, it becomes a part of you, sort of like the nib on a fountain pen that wears to your angle of writing.

And yes, you still get the interesting and subtle details that you have come to expect from a Leviner Wood custom garment. Like the buttons above.

Isn’t it time you benefitted from what our fathers knew? Partially lined is cool comfort in a very well-(un)constructed garment. Silk, linen, tweed, worsted wool, you name it. We recommend it.
