I've never been to LS. From what I have read, LS is open about making a traditional American cut. Since that is not what I am interested in, they are not an option for me. I do know Mr. Ned, having had a couple of suits made there. Sanford Bryant is a completely different type of operation. Mr. Ned is a custom tailor where you are measured, go through three fittings, and they make the garments on the premises. They make only full canvass suits. Sanford Bryant measures you and outsources the suit to a factory in Italy. He makes certain adjustments to the stock sizes of the suits to fit your measurements, but the adjustments are not infinite. You have certain options, such as single pleat or flat front pants, and you choose the fabric from books of fabric that have been selected by Sanford for his collection. I believe that all of the fabrics are Vitale Barberis Canonis. Sanford Bryant is more fashion forward than what Mr. Ned produces, but wearable and not on the edge. His suits do not exhibit the problems I have experienced with Mr. Ned because they are not fully canvassed (so no canvass bumps) and because they are made in a factory. I would like to see Sanford Bryant upgrade the quality of his suits, perhaps by using a different factory that puts in more handwork and that makes a full canvass suit (but under quality controls so that the canvass lies smooth).
