Ambrosi Napoli - Page 110

This thread seems to bring out the best in people. Why not have him make one pair of pants, and have somebody like Ed or David copy the fit? Nice bespoke trousers for half the price.

IIRC, emptym had his replicated by Luxire and was quite pleased. Not even half the price...

I don't know if the Rubinacci prices in London are different to Naples, but I paid 3300GBP for a Solbiati Linen Blazer, and was quoted a starting price of 3100GBP for a jacket prior to my first appointment. I was quoted 3900GBP for a 2-piece suit prior to my appointment also. Assuming therefore that Rubinacci trousers are around 800GBP, that makes them slightly more expensive than Ambrosi.

I would probably charge just as much. I would do the work locally though which may be seen as being advantageous to some in terms of accessibility and fittings.

Is all that hand work really necessary on a pair of pants? I was under the impression people were looking for a better fitting pant. I don't think it would be necessary to copy every exact pick stitch.

Also, I am under the impression that the Armoury adds their own mark up on Ambrosi's goods to make a profit. Would you really charge that much given there was a significant demand?

I think it is a fair price. That's how much bespoke trousers go for at a lot of high end tailors.

The hand-stitching you obviously don't need. You pay for it because it's nice.

I think if you take out all that handwork you are looking at a different proposition altogether.

Too simple and direct. Please complicate your theory with elements of culture, class, and race and resubmit for forvm consideration

I think there's more benefit than that. In my experience hand stitching has more "give," or stretch at the seams then machine stitching. Of course this might just be me trying to justify the premium I'm paying but hey, all reality is subjective, right?

Where the hell did I say anything about race or class?!

Now that's a complicated statement. Needs more about economies of scale and some references to global finance though.
