Turns out the holding period (up to 21 days) is just for new sellers such as me. But anyway, here's what seems to be happening:    I sold a suit (after shipping and fees) from Norway to USA for 260$ two weeks ago, when the USD/NOK was at 8.1 or so, which translates to 2080 NOK with my banks rates.  But since paypal has been holding my cash for two weeks now, the USD/NOK has dropped to 7.6, which equals roughly to 1950 NOK, so I've lost 130 NOK while wating...or around...
Damnit, the holding period sucks when dealing internationally. Since I was paid two weeks, the USD has become much weaker, and I've lost 20 bucks on one item, purely because of the FX swing.  
Bought a couple of new Marinella ties that turned out to be complete fakes from  some Ebay seller (Italy). My brain must have been on standby when I made the purchase. Either way, the ties are self-tipped (and that's about it) but feel like 5$ Chinese "silk" ties. Terribly stiff, some shine, no pattern matching etc. Stay clear.    http://www.ebay.com/usr/moda_modi?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2754
Check out Borrelli. Same amount of handwork as older Kiton, and even Attolini. But quite cheaper, and with just as flattering cuts and fantastic fabrics.

@MrNestor I checked out a couple of OJ suits and blazers a some months back. I really liked the Fabric and look of those. IIRC, the shoulders were completely natural, and the blazer was unlined. Probably very much like suitsupply. Cool stuff. 
That's normal wear.    I had metal toe taps installed at my local cobbler, I paid equivalent to 40$ (not in the US, but comparably expensive to NYC). The cobbler recommended me to just get vibram protective soles instead. Better sole protection, cheaper, etc...in hindsight, I should have gone for the protective soles.

The past half year or so I've been buying lots of stuff from these sellers. Lots of different sellers from Italia selling ultra-cheap designer stuff.    From what I've gathered, these sellers buy the items (often many seasons old) in huge bulk from various outlets and storage places. Some of the stuff is excellent, some can be really old and odd.    It's legit, but the vast majority is not what you can call staple pieces. One of these guys was selling really nice Kiton...
