I've been fortunate with tailoring costs on my e-bay purchases. I use a small tailor shop run by a Vietnamese woman who does good work. My Oxxford alterations have run about $75 (let out the jacket, shorten sleeves, let out the pants, shorten the inseam). For that, I've gotten a very nice fit--far better than any department store has ever given me. I've also been lucky in other ways--I purchased a 3-piece mtm suit and the vest and jacket fit perfectly--the only alteration was to shorten the inseam of the pants.
