The mail brought a new pair of mid-weight worsted flannel trousers the other day. Or pents, if you will. That is what the Neapolitan maker, Salvatore Ambrosi, calls them and, since his English is much better than my Italian, I am happy with that name.
Dormeuil's worsted flannel is usually for spring and fall but our cool Bay temperatures should permit wear during much of the summer as well. Cream trousers of course are a traditional look with navy blazers as well as other lighter weight odd jackets.
The pents in the photo were copied from a pair that I sent to Naples in lieu of measurements, with the caveat that Salvatore was to make them his way. And his way they are, from the contrast waistband with two watch/change pockets to the eight button fly and the bit of lining in the crotch. The other details are my customary ones, including 1 3/4" high cuffs, two inward facing pleats on each side, no rear pockets, and a split waistband.
Sr. Ambrosi is about to travel to London to see clients and plans to return to the United States before the end of the year. He invites potential customers to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. The strong Euro may yet have an effect but Ambrosi's usual price has been $700 per pair for standard cloths like moleskin, flannel, mohair, Irish and Italian linen, and cotton drill.
That is good value for hand made bespoke pents in any language.
