Ok. I'm reluctant to do so as this is the "ongoing bespoke" thread and feel like your repeated ambrosi references are really hijacking this thing, C&A, but since you asked I am happy to oblige. This is the story of my pants.Part 1: The measuringThe part where he measured me went fine. It usually does. I've never had a problem at the measuring phase. Well, that isn't true. I had planned to visit Gieves & Hawkes on my last visit to London but managed to lose my wallet...
If you don't like it then don't read it. There's thousands of posts on Paone as well.

In my case, I never received the great; just the horrendous. The pants were unwearable. And he didn't seem to have much interest in...
The quality. Have you actually used ambrosi or are you just guessing?
Definitely lesser. I would rate him as terrible as would many others. Cheaper, absolutely. When he was doing outsourcing I believe the charge was about three or four hundred euro.
