Neapolitan trousermaker Salvatore Ambrosi is visiting San Francisco for the first time (he will be in New York later in the week) and half a dozen men took him to dinner. Business was conducted first.
They fit perfectly of course but the Ambrosi trouser looks like other trousers from the exterior. Only when one looks inside does the workmanship become apparent.
The differences begin with the color coordinated waistband. And instead of the typical two button waist fastening, Ambrosi trousers have four (in addition to the button fly), so the front of the trouser maintains its shape better during wear.
The trouser cuffs also have buttons, on the inside, so they can be opened and brushed clean of accumulated dust.
$700 a pair, including standard cloth, for hand sewn trousers (the linen trousers in the photos were about $100 more). Potential clients should contact Ambrosi on Facebook, or, with somewhat less reliability, at email@example.com.
