    I am still waiting for two pairs of pants. One was ordered in 2009 summer, another was autumn 2009 too. Fitting was spring 2010. Many communications back and forth from then, and I was told pants are done but haven't received yet.
    wow, 2 years for pants. That's crazy.
    No excuse for 2 years of wait ...
    It was a long time, but not quite two years. If we count from the fitting, it's been about one year.
    Received my pants yesterday, via DHL.
    I was out for a while and there was a DHL sticker on my door when I returned. Couldn't figure out what it was for. Now I know! Well Binge, how do you like them? Posting pics?
    Lucky stinkers.

    Okay, if I understood Salvatore correctly on the phone, all outstanding U.S. orders have been shipped. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Well done! Would be great if you could wear to lunch next week, if you don't mind. [​IMG]

    Glad he remembered the cuff buttons on yours. He has overlooked them on mine roughly half the time.

    Same here. Maybe 1/3 but still. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason why he does it sometimes but not others. My latest two have them.

    So the buttonhole is just an opened side seam with two bar tacks? That's pretty clever. Pointless [and probably occassionally inconvenient], but neat nonetheless.

    Why do you say it's pointless? It allows you to open up the cuff for ease of cleaning.

    Yeah, but, truth be told, it's not like you miss it on the 99% of pants that don't have it.

    I realize that's what it's supposed to be for, but c'mon. That's so ridiculous.

    On the other hand I can just see someone carelessly burning the shiny impression of a button on the outside of the cuffs trying to touch them up, or the less damaging equivalent if you used a pants press.

    Small-timers. I regularly unbutton my Ambrosi cuffs to brush out stray caviar.
