Clearly, you haven't spent much time in the "Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata" thread!

Gross overstatement.... Cerrato e Mola get the bulk of the work from most prestigious sartorias

Just to throw a spanner in the works on the nice guy debate...

 

Ambrosi did a favour for me, he connected me with someone that I had been trying to contact for a while but they never answered my emails etc..

 

Ambrosi had absolutely nothing to gain from answering my messages and connecting me with this other person. I didn't pay him, I didn't give him anything for free, I don't buy trousers from him, he has no idea who I am and I'm not an influential person in the #menswear world.

 

Everyone I have spoken to says he's a really nice guy, my personal experience is the same.

I am one of those friends and indeed got all my trousers on time! Promise you I have no influence at all... Also, like T4, I don't live in Napels smile.gif
post #1974 of 1976

Reading some of the posts in this thread reminds me why I lurk on this forum less and less.  Why so much whining from people who have never ordered from Ambrosi?

 

I have nearly a dozen pairs via The Armoury in HK.  If you like the southern Italian style they are terrific.  All my trousers have arrived on schedule and fit well; when I have needed alterations (letting out, inevitably) there has been a roll of the eyes but the work has been carried out promptly and without complaint.

 

I am quite aware I am paying more for Ambrosi in HK than if I ordered locally.  But it seems mad to travel to Naples to save a few bucks.  I do, however, go to London regularly and (like lots of others) I also order things on Savile Row.  Note to file: big SR houses all seem to charge 20-30% more than Ambrosi for trousers.  This is the comparison, not Ambrosi vs MTM or a chop house.

::StyFo Member Marcolondra says however they look, they're still not as good as Mola's, who charges 1/3 of the price if you just fly all the way to Naples::

::Long Unseen StyFo Member shows up out of nowhere, to share his disgruntled experience with Ambrosi three years ago::

::Everyone thumbs of sympathy::

::StyFo members who were never going to buy from Ambrosi reiterate that they're definitely not going to buy from him now::

::Thread dies down until next trunk show, at which point someone innocently posts and another round of arguments ensues::

 

What round are we on?
