Wow that is a whole lot of money for a pair of pents. For double the price, I sure hope you get double the buttons.

Just as a general comment, I guess I just don't understand why a pair of pants should run you $1,200+.

Did we ever hear back from Foo on his dealings w/ Ambrosi (post the big SF 'nano' blowup)?

I hear it was resolved, but I can't seem to find the post right now...

I think he settled it with him, after Ambrosi chimed in on the forums. I recall Foo posting that he reached an agreement of some kind. Maybe I just hallucinated that confused.gif

Resolved as in: a) Foo finally received the promised goods, or b) They're best-buds again?

If my calculations are correct, $1.2k breaks out to about $12 per SF post:
  • 75 posts to bitch about logistics, customer service or price
  • 15 posts to nonchalantly mention how superior they are to your other pants
  • 1 post to say that Mina's are almost as nice
  • 9 posts to knowledgeably mock Foo

The Raven was written when Edgar Allan Poe got to peek into the future, and read this threak.

$1200 is about the same price for bespoke pants from Steed. The issue for me is that it is hard to justify that price for odd pants. I think I accept that same price for suit pants because I have no choice.

Same here, plus I expect to keep my jackets for many years whereas I replace my odd trousers every year or two (possibly because of poor maintenance).

Wow. Makes me appreciate NSM pricing for odd pents even more.

Despite everyone saying Rtw pants being typically "close enough" I've always had an issue with pents.  Going to try to commission them bespoke but I'd probably sample some Ambrosi if I were ever within 1,000 miles of a trunk show...
