Very nice Isaia suit in a lovely navy blue birdseye pattern. This is the slimmer base 'Gregory', and even though the tag says 52, its def. more of a 50/40. The trousers have been slimmed down, and they are pretty damn slim. Please see the measurements, and compare them to your own! I can't stress this enough. The suit is used, but in very nice condition. Boutonnière has not been opened, nor one of the front pockets.  The shoulders are soft and roped, much more narrow than...
Two used Loro Piana suits, made by St. Andrews. The suits are in used condition(some slight wear under the armholes, but not very noticable), and are really high quality. St. Andrews has made stuff for brands like RLPL, Stefano Ricci, Brooks Brothers and a many others. These suits are only sold at various Loro Piana shops, and retail around 3500-4000$. The ones I see on Ebay, usually go for around 500$-800$ (used) Both suits are in the size 49L (EU), but measure to slim...

There's a couple of Italian Ebay sellers/outlets that sell high-end stuff in massive volumes, and I'm pretty sure I've bought from the same seller that you're talking about (always has stocks of Borrelli Vintage Luxury and Regular, as well as jeans and lots of Belvest suits/coats?). Or it could be some of the other guys, they all seem to get their stuff from the same place...   Either way, my experience is that most of those sellers have little time or care to correct...
Royal collection uses finer fabrics, that's about it. Kinda like Canali and Canali Exclusive...same item, only that the later uses more expensive fabrics.    I own regular Borrelli, but have tried on Royal Collection in stores...personally, I wouldn't pay the 150$-300$ markup. Sure, it's very fine, but that too has its price. 
I have two suits from Isaia, and a bunch of Loro Piana suits which were made by Isaia.    Base Vincent (black label)  3-roll-2, classic button-stance  Roped shoulders, light padding  Slim-ish cut, I'm usually a 50EU, this one was 52.  Normal length jacket  Classic sized lapels  Normal FF trousers    Base Gregory (red label)  3-roll-2, slightly higher button-stance than the Vincent  Narrow Roped shoulders, light padding  Very slim cut. This one is a 52, which...
Found a couple of Carmina shoes on sale, ranging from 200$ (penny loafer) to 250$ for boots. Good price? I have no experience with this brand
Lots of high-end brands make sport coats which could easily pass off as orphaned suit jackets...don't worry about it, if it's marked as a SC, most likely is.    For example, here's a 4700$ RLPL SC. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=37973316
If you really like either of them, just swap the buttons to something more sport coatish. 
Yes, that one.    The Auction had like 6-7 days to go, and the seller didn't want to end the auction early. I was desperate as I needed it for NYE, and would never get it in time If I were to put a bid and wait... but at least I wouldn't have been in this mess If I did it the right way. 20/20 hindsight, and all that.    The money isn't really the issue here, what sucks is that the seller continues to ignore everything, and gets to do business as usual.
