Hey everyone, I am new here and I hope to learn from you more experienced posters. I recently decided I am going to get a suit made by Mr.Ned, but before taking the plunge, I read many posts about his product.

I was hoping someone could give me a bit more information on their impressions with the suits and I would GREATLY appreciate some pictures being posted.

I spoke to Vahram's son I believe and he told me he could make whatever I wanted as long as I was clear on my ideas but from the posts here, that does not seem to be the case.

I have many pictures cut out from magazines that illustrate various aspects I want on my suit but from what I here on the forum, the style at Mr.Ned is American Sack, padded shoulder, etc. My vision is a single breasted narrow peak lapel, black suit with flashy lining, double vented, flat front trousers, high armholes and lightly roped shoulder. I know this couldn't be farther from the American style but since Ned is supposedly a "Bespoke" tailor, shouldn't I be able to make my ideas come to fruition?

Any clarification, tips, help would be greatly appreciated.

Ned is the Father Vahram is the son, who now owns the business.

this is his new website.

a sack suit is an undarted front. You would not get a sack suit unless you requested one.
"House Style" is updated American.
Updated American now means slimmer and fitted.

There is nothing that you are looking for that Varm can not do.
Bespoke is a usless term. They will cut the suit to your specs and size. You will have to make at least 4 trips there for your first suit.
initial choice and measurements
Basted fittings Pants might be ready.
Finsished garment except buttonholes
pick up and go home and wear proudly
