The trousers are Ambrosi and they are fine. Let's try to rememer that this is CLOTH and it's meant to move and ripple and stuff.
I had fittings on six suits:
-B&W (looks mid gray) nailhead fresco, weaver unknown, probably 10 or 11 ounce.
-Dark blue w/royal nailhead (3% silk gives it some sheen), Woodhouse, 10/11 ounce
-Super lightweight mid gray fresco (lighter color than the one above, which is also a good bit heavier), Minnis, 8 ounce
-Tan tropical, Lesser, 8 ounce
-Tan linen probably 12 ounce, weaver unknown
-Slate blue shark, Minnis, 13 ounce.
We got through the fittings there. I am confident they will be fine. He will ship them or bring them.
The DB was made for NY visits but I brought it back to have the left sleeve corrected and taken in at the waist, which they did while I was there.
I like the DB on you Manton. How much influence do you have on the details of your garments?
Some. I can specify DB or SB, of course, how many buttons and where the lapels roll, pocket config, etc. I also asked for drape, which Luigi refers to as "comfortable." Beyond that, it's all them.
While I was there, Gennaro showed me an interview with him in an English language magazine in which he said something to the effect that "If you want to dictate how your clothes will look, I am not the tailor for you."
