Founded in 1965 by Nuran Mateosian, Mr. Ned has gained mainstream attention for creating the suits featured in The Royal Tenenbaums, as well as serving as director Wes Anderson’s go-to tailor. For the past 15 years, it has been run by Mateosian’s knowledgeable and charismatic son, Vahram, who is often in the shop as early as 6am to work with high-profile clients like former NBA All-Star Charles Barkley. Fittings take place in an industrial, exposed-brick Flatiron loft, where fabrics from Vitale Barberis, Scabal and Holland & Sherry are displayed in the front showroom (there’s also a full workshop in back). Mr. Ned prides itself on offering some of the lowest prices in town (suits start at $850, pants start at $250 and jackets start at $650) without sacrificing quality; the average turnaround is five to six weeks.
