Coatmakers and trouser makers are almost always different tailors. Each item benefits from specialized skills coming partially from repetition.

I think that at one time the Ambrosi's made for Rubinacci for their bespoke suits, if I am not mistaken.

One hopes they will coordinate somewhat on the design, to avoid a horrible mismatch.

Sadly Salvatore does not seem to respond to emails. I had one from him saying he was coming to London but he does not reply to a request for dates.

You are not mistaken.

Ambrosi makes the pants for all of Solito's suits, so this will not be a new thing for them.

Is it true that they will only be taking orders for gray flannel suits this trip, out of respect for M Fan's desire for consistency?

Salvatore is still working out the hotel details, so I will keep you posted about the exact location. But, until then, here's a price list:

Pants: $700
Jacket: $2,100
Suit: $2,800

These prices relate to 'standard' cloths. You can e-mail Salvatore at salvatore.ambrosi@virgilio.it to make an appointment.



For all those who have set up an appointment, or who want to fix it we will be from 18 February to 22 February in this hotel

New York Marriott Marquis 1535 Broadway,
New York, New York 10036 USA Phone: 1-212-398-1900 Fax: 1-212-704-8930


Regards
Salvatore

Salvatore,

Hope your trip to New York proves a success

Great to hear that you will be in London towards the end of February - please do post details when you have exact dates

Anyone think that Mr. Ned would be able to make a suit that looks like this? I know that the craftsmanship won't be as good but so long as it looks like it, I don't really mind. You get what you paid for right?

Salvatore, are your prices lower if we were to visit your shop in Italy?

The craftsmanship has a lot to do with bringing the "look " to fruition. They are intertwined. Cause and effect so to speak. Cut and make = "look".

To put things in perspective, these prices are in the neighborhood of Chan's.

While 2800 certainly isn't cheap for a suit and though I have no idea how it will turn out, I think it's definitely worth a try.

Ned can not make this suit.
It is a very different garment in terms of pattern and construction.
Ned makes a much more structured jacket.

sorry to differ, but unless chan have close to doubled their prices in the past 9 months, these are substantially higher than chan. i'm not sure one could (or would want to) get to $2800 for a chan suit, although i suppose you could if you chose a super rare fabric. chan's typical suit runs $1200-$1700 for english and italian 120s-150s (zegna and lp cloth seems to run more than that). at least that's where they were about 9 months ago. i'm not saying that $2800 for a suit is not worthwhile (and from the responses of others this certainly seems worth the price and potentially worth a go) and make no comments about relative quality between the two - others may have experience with both, i don't - but on a pure cost basis, they are not really comparable.

Fair enough - there is definitely a price difference between Solito and Chan though Chan is getting up there for the good fabrics (Lesser & Harrisons, etc.). But he's charging a lot less than typical NY bespoke and, I believe, less than Oxxford MTM these days. I guess it's more of an attempt to justify this experiment to myself but I'd tend to group anything that costs less than 3k for a 2-piece in the same category.
