Yep...everything I've read and seen suggests that they are very nice.

Im not sold on that. Some people just wear through pants faster. If your thighs are hefty and close together its inevitable that your pants wear faster. Also how you sit, how much time you spend seated.... Surely better fitting pants give you a leg up (har har derp derp) but its not a magic savior imo/ime.

I see AlmostSmart. Dude has to be one of the most consistent lurkers.

 

Expensive pants aren't an investment. Expensive clothes/shoes aren't an investment. They won't save money in the long run. And that doesn't make them any less wonderful

I dunno man. Those BR pants looked pretty damn good on clags.

The most I've spent on a jacket is 1.5k (with fabric). Most I've spent on pants (that werent a part of a suit) is 0.25k. Been perfectly happy with 200 dollar pants. If you really care about pants, yeah, sure, shell out for them. You owe yourself that much (assuming you can afford it). But if they really don't matter that much, you'll can look amazing and feel amazing by any standard for south of 500 dollars.

Those BR pants are an exception rather than the rule though. Happened to be the perfect color and a near perfect fit. Rides a little low for my tastes. I do have another pair of BR pants in rotation, but everything else is Yount (a ridiculous amount), WvG, and mtm

Does anyone have ang examples of Ambrosi's trousers, because the ones he himself and those armoury guys wear look awful? They're all too short and too tight.

I also highly doubt it that he's the only one in all of Italy that can make a perfectly fitting pair of trousers.

Everytime someone speaks about perfectly fitted trousers I'm like 'whatever' because of Vox

Vox's trousers (whoever made those trousers is the best maker, period) (Click to show)

 

Although, I do enjoy some of Ambrosi's works, especially the pleats.

Vox looks awesome, but I'm not very impressed by those ambrosi's. Pleat is gaping open and the back and side don't look very clean. Definitely not $1250 clean.

Those cotton ones look better, but are a bit too short and tight for my tastes.

I agree that the gaping pleats is a problem, but I think they look very crisp and placed correct. I've seen other pictures where the pleats are completely closed and almost invisible when standing straight. I showed those pictures because they were the only ones I could find that showed all different angles from the same wearer. As for the cotton trousers, I agree they're a little to short.

I guess for $1250 I'd just expect nothing but perfection. No wrinkles anywhere, like Vox's trousers.

100 % agree. That's why I said what I said about Vox's trousers.

Yeah, they're awesome. The pleat style looks English, so they might be Steed. Could also be his mystery tailor or NSM, but my bet would be Steed. I'm sure someone here knows who made them.

Do not like those gray Abrosi pents. Not stylistically and not the way the pleats look. Shrug.
