    I wrote a description of the process with Mr. Ned and my results, somewhere on SF. You should be able to find it. No photos, though.

    I personally haven't bought a suit from Mr. Ned, but my brother owns a couple and they look wonderful. As soon as I get my cash up, I'm sure I'll be pestering Vahram with an OCD style order :D.

    On a serious note, Vahram is a great custom tailor. He helps you get what you want, but isn't afraid to interject his opinion as well. As long as you don't have paper thin skin, you'll be fine... and either way you're going to leave with a great suit.

    This is very interesting... I'm surprised he's so inexpensive. I'd love to see examples of his work. Any clients willing to post pics?

    Yes, brought home my first suit from V today.
    Great experience. In fact , picked fabric for a second suit after the 2nd fitting cuz I just knew the first one was going to turn out great.

    I had known about Mr Ned for several years after going to Carl for shirts.
    But never bothered cuz I was kinda getting by with BB otr suits.
    Having finished the first one with V I can never go back to BB.

    Looking forward to next fall to pick out some other fabrics.
    Will post a few pics when I wear it for the first time.

    I went to see him a couple weeks ago and really fell in love with his style. By style I mean that he was completely honest that he thought a fabric would look awful on me. I appreciate brutal honesty. He agreed that I have a very difficult body type and will probably take three fittings. If he comes even close to meeting my expectations we will be doing a lot more business together. They're on vacation now and I will have my next appointment the first or second week of September.

    just saw this article and agree with Shirtmaven.

    I got a great pair of trousers and jacket from him last fall and now have him making two fresco trousers and one blazer.
