    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.
