    It may be worth trying as long as your expectations are very, very low.

    I would think a better "risk" for your $200 would be buying a used Oxxford suit on EBay for the same amount of money. I wouldn't chance it....

    nah - im not even remotely tempted - i live in Vietnam, the cheap tailoring epicenter of the universe, but when I came across it, it did make me wonder if anyone had tried it out.

    It is interesting however to think that while ppl order suits from Thailand at these prices off the internet with no face to face consultation, they could also be ordering from England - but Im not sure that makes it any better in any sense other than perception though.

    The suit may still be made in the Orient even though you are ordering in England. If this is the case, you are just adding an extra layer for commissions/profit and would be better off to order directly from the tailor.
