I meant I wasn't sure why he was asking me about something he said. I was clearly responding to another poster. Maybe I need to read further back in the thread, but I'd rather not.

It occurs to me that pants can really destroy forums.

"Blood Diamond Pants" destroyed Militaryphotos.com

"TAD Gear Spartan Pants" destroyed Usualsuspect.net

And "Ambrosi Pents" will destroy Styleforum.

How about hot pants? What did they destroy?

I would be genuinely interested to compare and talk about the two makes.

You have more metal loops and less handwork.

In what areas? Does anybody have pictures of these details?

Yeah, but not all of his customers want a ton of pick stitching or get it.

His pants vary.

SInce Ambrosi began building his Asian business I've noticed a lot more display pieces with a greater amount of obvious stitching. I assumed it was for display but perhaps also for that audience? Maybe the stitching was always there but I didn't see as much since most of the pants I saw were heavier weight fabrics.

The side seams are hand lapped.

The seam at the seat is done by hand, but not lapped.


But cheer up - you're still well ahead on chainz.

...well behind on buttons though!

One thing Ambrosi does that I haven't seen elsewhere is make the cuffs so that you can unbotton them to clean them. Not something you use all that often but it is nice.
