How does Mr. Ned's work compare to WW Chan, Hemrajani Bros, or Izzy at LS?

I am quite pleased with the work and fit. I am not an easy fit as I have very sloping shoulders.
They cut everything on the premises. Pants are made in their loft, but the jackets are sewn else where.
There are usually three fittings.
Raw try on.
3/4 finished(no buttonholes, sleeves are sewn in but lining is not.
Sometimes a fourth fitting if needed.
They have a great inventory of fabrics in stock. They have swatch books form all of the usual sources. The best deals are on the fabrics on the shelves. Most of the fabrics have selvedges so there will be no surprises.
There are no 70 year old master tailors making a coat and a half a week. But these are not $3000 suits either.
I hate to quote prices but I know that you can get an excellent fabric for under $1000. I think they start at around $600-$700. for a suit.
