How does one deal with Ebay buyers that refuse to pay customs?    Some guy bought a couple of fragile and somewhat expensive items (600$). He did not ask for me to declare down value, but stressed that I packed really well. Well, now it's been a week in the customs, awaiting payment. And no contact of course.    What really grinds my gears is that I've already spent $50 on shipping, and will have to pay a return fee (almost same sum) if it's returned (which may or may...
Most of my Borrelli shirts have that kind of roll. (Though not as extreme as those in your OP)    Example:   
Here's one tip I've heard regarding both Hermes and Ferragamo: The silk texture/stripes should run vertical, not horizontal. I don't know the technical term for it, but if you zoom in on either ties (at least the legit ones), you should see that the silk goes in vertical stripes. (or at least somewhat vertical/a bit slanted)

Classic staple tuxedo from Brioni for sale. Not much to say, everyone here knows Brioni. It's in used but good condition, I recently bought it but only got to wear it twice for some events.

White Brioni bag included.    Specs:    -Peak lapels  -Grossgrain facing  -100% black wool  -Unvented  -Double pleat trousers    Measurements: (Using the askandyaboutclothes how to measure a jacket...
Another tie brand: Have anyone here ever seen "Ga Ga" ties? I thrifted one the other day. Extremly hefty 7-fold tie...Nice silk, though it makes a gigantic knot even with FIH.    "Ga Ga piazza dei mortiri  NAPOLI" 
Anyone familiar with Richel ties? Hand made in Spain.    Thrifted a big lot of various ties, where two of them were Richel. The silk is really outstanding, and the quality seems quite good too. The designs are not for everyone (think Ferragamo and Hermes), but the silk really blew me away. And they go for next to nothing on Ebay too. 
Here's a nut for the label geeks. I'm completely lost in this one:    Found inside a Patrick Hellmann Collection suit. Probably made in Italy.  And what does "Made in UE IVA PT" mean? I know UE means EU in Italian, and IVA means VAT.      From another similar suit  
Have you tried 44S ?    I've been helping a friend that has the exact same stats, and 44S seems to work perfectly with most brands. Maybe even Regular, if the suit has a modern (i.e short) cut. 
 Caruso.  The RLPL timeline looks roughly like this (for suits and sport coats)  1994 - Early 00s = Chester Barrie Early 00s to around 2008 = St. Andrews (Suits and sport coats) and Cantarelli (Some sport coats) 2008 - Today = Caruso  With that said, I've heard that RLPL went back to SA this or last year.
