    ^About four months. Not bad at all. About the same as Chan. They fit great and the workmanship is marvelous.
    If you order some though, just know that when Salvatore says "two weeks" he means "a while."

    Btw, did you order anything from the Luxire swatches?

    This thread is a solid reminder as to why Italy is fucked.

    Nice pants. Did you re-order based upon measurements from two years ago or did you visit him?

    Do it through a third-party agent, like Armoury.

    So you can actually complain at somebody and be taken seriously.

    f*cked?

    Is this what f*cked mean? To turn away from a bunch of whiny, demanding, know-it-all customers in favor of people who revered your craft and willing to pay you more.

    Good thing you don't own a business. And if you do, It aint going to last long. Foo was more than reasonable and gave this guy what 8 grand for freaking pants?

    Do you pay 1000 per pant? If you did, would you expect them to be flawless and to receive a certain level of service?Anyone who EARNED their money would.

    I'm not sure what this means either. Who are the whiny, know-it-all customers that were turned away?

    Rule #1 of a successful business owner would be to avoid the know-it-all whiny type such as yourself :nodding:

    How do you compare the fit of these Ambrosis to your Chans? A comparison would be nice.

    Handwork and visible stitiching marks are nice and all, but fru-fru is is fru-fru.

    Again, I don't follow your logic. Foo was not being whiny, actually very reasonable.

    Rule #1 of owning successful business is to treat your customers with respect and to deliver what was promised. Not a version of what is promised after making hollow promises, treating them like crap and dodging their communications.

    Something tells me you are totally out of touch with reality. Actually..I'd love to have you as a customer, by your logic, I can take you money, deliver you a version of what I promised initially (based on how I feel -- maybe it's right maybe it's wrong), and when you complain (reasonable or not) I'll call you a whiner and dismiss you like the peasant you are!
