Interesting. At just $200, it may be worth trying.

I am curious about this as well. I have seen several bespoke tailors on Ebay that I was curious to know about.

So it's a MTM suit. How is this different than all the other online MTM suit makers?

The suit will be sent direct from our office in South East Asia.
Do not want.

Yah. I saw that too. I use Kishore Daswani for my suits, $777 for a suit and 2 shirts. But still looking for cheaper.

you get what you pay for... you think a company that recieved measurements and mails you a suit, coming from SE Asia really cares if you're happy?

There are some exeptions, but not in this case

Good points.

Now the questions is are there other Bespoke Tailors not from southeastasia who make suits for cheap on ebay that we would trust.

this is damn near guaranteed to fail. i mean look at the models they even have there ... i wouldnt do it even if they had perfect looking pictures of suits/coats they had made.

save yourself the money and stress ... learn about fit and then find alocal tailor you can (micro-)manage to produce the results you need. or pay one of the SF approved tailors and pray they make you look good.

"You are bidding on 1 custom tailor made suit. Normally retailing at USD$899.00, you are buying direct from Lachlan Benson Tailors wholesale at a massive discount."

How the hell can a 'bespoke' suit be bought 'wholesale'?


Evidently the prices shown on their web-site are just there so they can say 'normally retails for X' in an effort to make the eBay auction look like a bargain.

Feedback score at 95 point something. Danger zone starts below 99%. Very bad feeling.

Aloha,
