This thread made my day.

How did I miss this thread? It has everything - fallen angels, mud slinging, passive-aggressiveness competition, race and class warfare... fantastically entertaining

It's a shame that Ambrosi's English is so shit, otherwise he would find some valuable feedback in this thread.

Do you think present and future Ambrosi customers will begin to insist that they only pay half up-front and the remainder upon delivery? It appears the full payment up front disincentivizes Salvatore to stick to any sort of reasonable delivery schedule.

I did it as a way, I thought, to speed up the process. I was wrong...

I'm relieved I didn't reply to Ambrosi's repeated solicitations - thanks intuition.

Ercole actually charges me more than Salvatore does.

Yikes. Still, I think it would have a greater effect if it were a collective action from all customers placing orders in the future vs. a sole actor such as yourself (but you were wise to do so).

The profit margin is way to thin for the half-and-half payment plan to motivate a dead beat tailor to finish the order. He makes less money by actually delivering the order....

It bears worth repeating.

I think he makes the best pants I've ever seen, fkn magic pants. I also really like him as a person, he is very generous, etc.

I just think he has serious issues with keeping to deadlines, managing time, communicating, etc.

What an epic thread.

At the end of the day, how many people are going to continue to drink from the Ambrosi well?

This.

Though, I must say that Salvatore has been on a self-pormotional blitz for the last 6+ months and has clearly neglected his customers as a result. And that, no matter how you want to cut it, was a conscious decision.

For me, I tried to be patient/understanding/whatever for a few go-rounds and personally could not deal with the frustrations and walked away from both he and Solito as a result.

I like the product enough that I am willing to deal with it.

Can someone (anyone?) explain the magic of the Ambrosi pents? I don't mean handwork or construction - I mean fit. Is there an Ambrosi silhouette?
