    what does standard fabric include?
    And premium?
    Thanks.

    My friend and trouser maker Salvatore Ambrosi will be in New York City between February 18th and 24th to meet with new and old clients. In addition, Gennaro Solito, the esteemed Neapolitan tailor, will be present to take orders for jackets and suits.

    Salvatore is still working out the hotel details, so I will keep you posted about the exact location. But, until then, here's a price list:

    Pants: $700
    Jacket: $2,100
    Suit: $2,800

    These prices relate to 'standard' cloths. You can e-mail Salvatore at [email protected] to make an appointment.

    I'm wearing a Solito suit here.

    Keep in mind, as I note in that post, that the suit was not made for me.

    Here he is in his shop looking quite elegant:

    He tends to, from what I have seen, make a more fitted coat than that in general. Obviously, he can make a drapey one as well, but the voluminousness in that pic should not scare people away who would prefer something leaner.

    BTW, in that Menswear mag. that he has in that pic, he is quoted as saying something to the effect of "come to me for what I do, not for what you want". In other words, don't be an internerd and go ask him to make you a Tom Ford cut [​IMG]

    Yes, you can see that the one that I have has a much cleaner chest...here's a different shot than the one I linked earlier in this thread...

    [​IMG]

    ...so that tells me both that he can do both ranges, but also that if you see him, you should be clear on how you want the chest and back to be, lest you get a clean chest when you want a bit of drape, or a bit of drape when you wanted a clean chest.

    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
