Ive been following the mr. ned thread but cant seem to find it despite the search function. Are there any new updates? When we last left off there were some favorable comments and carl of cego speaks highly of him. However later posts found the father a bit overbearing and evasive to specific questions about what they could do or like to do. So what i ask those who have any exp with mr. ned is this: would you trust him to select a shoulder style and silouhette for you? Could you walk in and show them a pic of say a fallan and harvey or darren beamon and say would this be ok for my body type? can you do it. Or would they just do it to sell you a suit. Or worse the opposite and have you coming out with thick shoulder pads ala 1980s freakshow In other words is this cut rate tailor only for people who know exaclty what they need and want? Are they too risky if you need some advice about what shape would work best. On a related note then...if one could not afford the full bespoke treatment from say longsdail. Who would you reccomend in nyc in the 1500 MTMrange who you could trust to say what works and doesnt for your body? Thanks all for the comments. I need a couple of good suits for shape and silhouette and then once the style is confirmed buy some lower 80s fabrics for the subway.
