    Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking here for awhile, but this is my first time posting. I'm a recent college graduate who is finally starting to build out a decent wardrobe and I'm looking to make a few good additions after the new year. I recently received by first CEGO shirts and should get getting a Sam Hober tie soon, as they seemed to be good values.

    I've read a lot of reviews of custom tailors like Mr. Ned's, and there seems to be a decent following for his clothes here. I was wondering how his clothes compare in both quality and cost with made to measure from some of the more well known brands. I guess Zegna, Hickey Freeman, and others are coming to mind, but I'm sure there are good ones that I'm missing. I guess what I'm looking for is whether there's quality to be gained by going to one of these places vs. a Mr. Neds, or if I'm paying for a brand for the most part, which is something I would like to avoid doing.

    Also, I've been spending a decent amount of time at Burberry recently, and I've found I really like the look of some of their stuff. I was wondering how the quality is for the price.

    Thank you,
