Custom suits in NYC

I have been doing some online research into having a custom suit made here at home in NYC. Some of the places I am considering are Mr Ned and Alan David Custom on the lower end of my price range, Beckenstein Bespoke and Saint Lurie in the middle, and Martin Greenfield, David Reeves, and Franco Ercole on the higher end of my budget. Has anyone had first hand experience working with the different tailors and can speak to their differences?

You are asking a very, very general question that would require scores of pages to answer. There are differences regarding price, execution, turn-around time, style, etc. Luckily, there are literally hundreds of posts on this precise issue that you'll find if you use the search feature. I'd suggest starting there and then posing any specific unanswered questions. Asking for a comparison of seven different tailors who have been discussed many, many times won't get you very far.

Well, it is not that general. It is only seven tailors in a city with many dozens. I have read many of the posts which is how I arrived at this short list and have already broken out the list on the issue of price. I was simply asking if there is someone who has had experience with more than one, or perhaps even all seven, tailors. Nonetheless, I take your point.
