Thanks Monkeyface. Looks ideal I see that the Athenaeum also has what seems to be a delicious Gentleman's Afternoon Tea. Perfect for those who don't have a sweet tooth.

Here is a better pic to compare two versions of Ambrosi pants. Peter, from Saint Crispins, is wearing Ambrosi pants. You can see they are a bit longer and fuller in the thigh.
Ambrosi will cut a more moderate tapered pant for you. He will ask you what cuff opening you would like and what length. You don't have to get this high of a cut (pic taken Thursday at WIngtip)
@gettoasty , try this guy in Berkeley. http://www.yelp.com/biz/advanced-european-tailoring-berkeley He is excellent and he is glad to discuss with you subtle nuances in fit. BTW, he is also one of the top recommended leather alterations guys in the Bay Area. His prices are a fraction of what some of the Union Square tailors charge.
Greg, sorry if this has been asked before I was unable to locate it in this thread. With Rota pants, what is the cuff opening on a size 50 or 52? I'm an actual 35" waist. Legs are not trim but not hefty. What size do you recommend I order?
What do you guys look for now (or request if ordered) in the cut, fit or other details to make your pants a bit more current or updated? I just ordered some pants and went with a 8" wide cuff opening, 3-4 years ago that would have been 8.5" and 6 years ago probably 9". I have some that are 7.75" but that is a bit extreme for my build. I'm also getting single pleats (probably the first pair of pleats since 2003 ) And still holding at 2" cuffs. I also like the look...
Cary - cool story about Dukes. Thanks for the link. London seems to one of the best cities for an elegant cocktail experience.
Thanks culver wood. The Artesian was just suggested to me last night by one of the better known bartenders in San Francisco. The same bartender mixed us up a couple of Dukes recipe martinis
Arlington Guitar Show this weekend. Anyone here going?
I agree with Derek and would add that from everything I've read Ambrosi has had a good track record working through retailers for the last several years.
