This is a pretty succinct description of what the "Dubiously honored" members are allowed to do. This is the first overstep, and I understand Matthew's reasons, but he still should have contacted someone else to delete or edit Ambrosi's posts, especially given his involvement in the dispute. The dubiously honored members program has been in place since July, 2011, but until fairly recently, only several members have made use of their privileges, which are to allow them to keep their threads from being derailed too much.

Cheers,

Fok.

I can think of at least one recent situation where this privilege was rather obnoxiously and repeatedly abused. If you're interested in hearing about it please send me a PM.

or, if you wanted to keep it private, you could have PMed it yourself without making this public announcement.

so sad, it was mafoofan's original review of ambrosi's pants that got me started in chasing the bespoke dream...

So we've got 2 people who can't get Foo on the phone, yet they apparently have an email that was accurate enough for Foo to delete it?

Also, just for kicks I googled Foo's name (I assume it's widely known, or at least Ambrosi knows it) and the city he lives in, and without getting more specific lets just say it isn't too hard to figure out where he works

In other words, it's fucking ludicrous that they couldn't get in touch with Foo. Last I knew, the landlines to NYC still worked.

You are a tailor and someone orders TEN PAIRS of pants at what, $800 a pop? $8000 worth of pants. Wouldn't you break your neck to keep that customer happy? Am I missing something?

I realize it's Italy and all, but having been there I would expect a higher level of service. Even the guys who gassed and robbed us on the night train to Switzerland left a note (it said "Mi dispiace" - true story).

Yup, family of 4 in a sleeper car, none of us woke up while they got our $$ and passports (which my mother was sleeping on top of). Italian cops suggested we were gassed, so I guess it's speculation, but my brother is a light, light sleeper - if he didn't wake up something was afoot.

This was about 100 years ago, btw

Ambrosi is probably bluffing. There are plenty of ways to get a hold of people. They were both online on SF and Ambrosi could've sent a simple PM to Matt if he could not get a hold of Matt by phone for some BS reason.. The problem could've been settled in the time Ambrosi took to type all his responses on this thread when he insulted Matt.

I don't see anything wrong in this. He is sharing an experience with us, isn't this what is supposed to be in this forum?
At least I will be more careful of which tailor to choose if I want to spend $800 for a pair of pants.

By the way great to see this topic being so interesting for someone simply registered to comment on this. marchal.gif
