1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    In other words, don't be an internerd and go ask him to make you a Tom Ford cut.

    Nicely played, but it won't work.

    No, he doesn't. Solito does coats. Ambrosi is the trouser maker.

    No, no, no, not this time, Consigliary. No more meetin's, no more discussions, no more Sollozzo tricks. You give them a message from I want Solozzo if not it's all out war we go to the mattresses.

    mafoofan, what is the process with these guys? I assume that when meeting you first, they take your measurements and order and later they deliver a finished suit? Or does the process involve fittings? From the frequency of their visits I guess it might be difficult to have several fittings. Am I wrong?

    From what I understand regarding the trousers: First meet you get measured and you choose your fabrics. Second meet in March they return with trousers for another fitting. If they need to be adjusted again (they probably will) they will make the notes of adjustments. Afterwards they will fix back home in Italy and I believe then mail you finished product.

    I believe M. Fan had one additional step when he had pants made based on reading his blog.

    Quick question - do either of these gentlemen ever visit the U.K? Or would I need to travel to Naples for a pair of Ambrosi trousers?

    The first visit is to prenderele measures and select the fabrics, the second time bè to prove that both the trousers and jackets baste, enon finished ..
    After the measure dispatched all at home ..

    For more information may apply to Mr. Manton, he already has Rovato to make trousers ...

    Thank you for your interest

    Geez, I wish Panico would divert some of his foreign travel from the far east to N. America.

    They are different tailors. You and I do just about the same thing, but not in the same way. In the ways we do it differently, we are different.

    The two of you annoy people, but you annoy them in different ways.

    If the three of us were in the same room, we could annoy people 3! ways. Do the math...that's a lot. Just by adding one more, the annoyance factor increases 3:1.
