Don't have other photos with me now... Just sharing a small detail I asked Chan to do for the cuffs of the pants: buttons to unfold the cuffs.



I think Lai just copy some of the Ambrosi pants feature, but in terms of workmanship, it is far far beyond Ambrosi level IMHO.

You are probably mistaken.

I have confirmed with Car and the fatboy (which you probably know as well) can acutally replicate 100% Ambrosi workmanship.

The replication contained, inter alia, the followings:

1)Triple curtain waistband
2)Hand tag on all pleats and pockets
3)Full on hand stitching in all attachment areas
3)Side seam of trouser also hand stitched
4)Button Cuff
5)Two internal lock button and four button fly
6)all hand sewn buttonholes
7)Light and stiff waistband canvass

I know of the member had went a long way to ask fatboy to do it. He actually has a Ambrosi Trouser and passed to fatboy for replication.

Obviously, I asked about the price and turn out time for these extra work... I just have not pull the trigger yet.

If you have seen fatboy's quasi-Ambrosi trouser.... you will be impressed.

Beside fit which is more dependent to the shape and taste, the workmanship is at a different level.

Obviously that is if you pay Fatboy extra money to make it.

Extra money compare to other HK tailor.....but still half of what ambrosi charge ?

I don't know, may be you can show us some pics to see how this workmanship look like.
For what I saw the "Fatboy" work before, I am not impressed. lurker[1].gif

I saw few Hong Kong Sifu made pants with those feature, but not on par with Ambrosi "craftmanship". That is what I am saying.

Well I understand "you get what you paid", but at least you have to admit these are pretty amazing for replicates

As I reiterate, I only say Fatboy can "copy" them in a less costly bargain.

Is this the Cricket club by Fox Bros?
Very nice indeed. I didn't know this existed in HK, but now that I do... I'll be doing more CMT
Thanks for sharing.

I do not own this. I hope one member in here will not mind as I ask Car for some pictures.

I think those are off white flannel from Fox Brothers. I suspect the owner made CMT with them.

I am also now having something made by Lai. This time will be dramatically different from Lai's usual stuff.

I quite like pants using buttons instead of zipper. Below is mine (the same one from Chan):

I'm a philistine, I stick to zips for my everyday suits.

Almost every tailor that I know prefer zips themselves.
