    Hi I am new to this site and would welcome some help...
    I have been researching prices for custom suits at these 3 places and it seems that Gentle Custom Tailor and Giliberto's Designs prices are about the same price but Mr. Ned is around half the price (with the same fabric). Does anyone know why that would be? Are those other 2 places that much better in quality? I wasnt impressed with Giliberto's (I thought they were baiting and switching me on fabric). Lets say super 120's in a reputable name was around $800 at Neds and around double the price at the others....does anyone have an idea why?

    Check the Ask Andy forum (www.askandyaboutclothes.com) for a long thread by bry2000 detailing how he has purchased suits from two of these tailors for purposes of comparison.
