    How about finish though? I take it Ambrosi is fancier?

    Both Mina and Ambrosi's trousers tend to be cut slimmer, right?

    In my experience, Mina's pants are slimmer than the Brits (but not slim per se). Ambrosi's are slim by any measure.

    Havent had pants made by Ambrosi but cant say enough good things about NSM pants. She makes a great, higher rise, comfortable pant. My first pair from Mina were a little too full at the bottom for me but that was easily corrected on subsequent pairs.

    I do like the pents to my Mina suit better than the coat.

    Ambrosi cut normal trousers for me but I think that if you don't specify, they will be REALLY slim.

    My Ambrosis are very tapered but not at all slim in the thighs.

    They fit well at the hips and seat and the back balance is perfect so they look trim but don't feel at all tight or constricting.

    I doubt plastic. Probably corozo.

    You're serious? The guy paid $800 for a pair of pants and they come with plastic buttons... I highly doubt it.

    I think they are plastic. Most all I've seen in that style of button and used on the interior of the trouser are plastic. Could be something different that is available in Italy, no way to know from the picture.

    Yes, who cares? Are you going to walk around town with your pants wide open?

    So this chick - right THEN - was like 'ugh plastic buttons... I'm outta here.'

    And Salvatore had his revenge for those posts about waiting too long for your pents.

    Wait, you smell that?
    I used to pay $800 for pants with plastic buttons all the time. No big deal.
