...credit to Will from ASW.

"Ambrosi's ready to wear line will initially be in stores in Asia in 2012. It promises the Ambrosi styling, including button flies and contrast colored waistbands, at a considerable savings from bespoke, though no prices have been set as of this time."

Bespoke Ambrosi pants run $750, and help you to look like this:



They also now have a new higher end bespoke line made from vintage cloth. $1500 per pair.

"Speaking of bespoke, father and son now also produce an entrely hand-made trouser called the Antonio, using vintage cloth from the family's stocks, for $1,500 a pair. That is about double the current price for a bespoke trouser with the usual 17% hand-work."

So the new vintage-cloth trousers means you get to pay an extra $500/m (on top of the standard bespoke trousers cloth price) for cloth they haven't been able to shift in decades?

$750? that's the RTW price correct? I always thought their bespoke was about $1,200ish. Either way, it is very expensive for trousers. Beautiful work though, I can't argue against paying for it if you have the means.

$750 is the bespoke price,RTW must be cheaper. I am surprised by 17% handwork in the bespoke though,I thought it was all handmade.

Srly. They're just pants. But I suppose if you were to account for the trouser component of a $4000 bespoke suit, then it sounds about right, if not on the lower end.

17% handwork, is that all...?

I demand 100/3 % on my stuff.

SR pants generally cost over £650.

Ambrosi's pants look well made from what I've seen, nice detailing, especially the fastening.

I like how they specify 17%. I would like to challenge that it is only 16.8% and they rounded up. That 0.2% is dollar bills, son.

Granted the vintage fabric price may be a little steep compared to his normal bespoke price but SR prices as George noted start at around £650-700. My off-Row tailor charges around £700, so I'm guessing that on-Row would be about 10-30% more?

Understood. I am not that much of trouser aficionado so would probably not have my odd trousers made-up at that price... I'd rather go elsewhere.

It's funny how Will from ASW gets Ambrosi trousers, however Kabbaz' $160 sea island cotton undershirts are "too rich" for him.
