Based in the Quartier Espagnole in the heartland of Italian Tailoring – the Naples Ambrosi family have been making trousers in the traditional way for four generations. From the fully handmade construction to the ‘Pancierina’ closure, Ambrosi trousers are famous for their curved fit that follows the line of the leg, stretched and shrunk under a tailors iron until it falls perfectly down the leg.

Today, Salvatore Ambrosi has the reputation as the best trouser maker in the world. Salvatore himself takes measurements of customers, hand cutting each trouser in Napoli. Ten working hours are needed to make an Ambrosi trouser. One of the key features of an Ambrosi Napoli trouser is the hand-stitched center-back which no machine in the world can reproduce.

Salvatore Ambrosi oversees all fittings and takes bespoke orders every two to three months. LOST+FOUND with The Armoury will be assisting Salvatore during his visits to Manila.

Ambrosi Napoli will be taking bespoke trouser orders on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31. For appointments, please contact Jason at +63 917 548 7125 or email thelostfoundshop@gmail.com. Appointments required by May 23.

Trousers start at Php 60,000.
