How I wish they could make the Lazio in more staple and CBD fabrics, I'd be all over one.    edit: Nevermind, they actually have some! And available here in Europe too   http://eu.suitsupply.com/en_NO/suits/lazio-blue-plain/P3783.html?start=5&cgid=Suits&prefn1=basicDessinSuits&prefn2=color&prefv2=Blue&prefv1=Plain http://eu.suitsupply.com/en_NO/suits/lazio-blue-plain/P3786.html?start=23&cgid=Suits&prefn1=basicDessinSuits&prefn2=color&prefv2=Blue&prefv1=Plain
Everything I know about menswear, I pretty much learned here. I used to think that shirt-like soft shoulders were the be-all and end-all to suit/coat aesthetics. The past year I've grown to love the more structured look, classic Brioni, Zegna, some English cuts, etc....and with a slight rope to it.  It looks clean, powerful and masculine.    I've noticed that a lot of guys that post in the WAYWRN have pretty sloped shoulders, and that natural shoulders doesn't look...
People hate Hugo Boss around here, but I've always liked their dress pants. Very modern and tapered fit, and sometimes they come in pretty nice fabrics. Usually see them go for 100$-130$.    Suitsupply is around 150$   If you could stretch your budget a bit more, you could also pick up brand new Incotex on Ebay and forums...but I can't vouch for the cuts on those.    Lastly, Zegna Milano and Torino fit dress pants are very tapered. But again, brand new they go for...
They look like normal loafers to me. See people in the business wear 'em every day. Though not with black/metallic bits. 
Can the limitations be bypassed if you open up a store?
Well, that's a load of sh!t. Probably a good way to weed out high-volume con artists, but also a good way to weed out competition for the big sellers/stores.    Could anyone list the best alternatives to Ebay?    I've got about 25 items to sell, all in all. And since I live in Norway, using a consignor would be difficult. And besides, I have no intention of giving away 20%-40% of the money, there's got to be another way. 
How to raise the selling limit? I just started selling, and have a 500$/month limit.    Almost all of the items I want to sell are around 300$-1000$  Does this mean that I'll have to spend 10 months trying to sell off my wardrobe on Ebay?    Selling stuff over there is SO much faster than forums, but I guess that's a moot point, with the sales limit...
Shoes: Brown, Black, Burgundy, Cognac. I'd keep it a bit darker.    Shirt: White or Blue (solid, striped, etc.)    Tie: Brown, Rust, Dark Navy, Burgundy, Dark Grey with black tones, Light Blue. Lots of options here. Grenadine, Dotted, Geometrics.    PS: White, Paisley in darker colors, etc.
A couple of days ago I made an auction, and everything went smooth. Item sold pretty fast, and everything is good.  Today I try again, but now I need to confirm my contact information.    However, since I'm located in Norway, I can't do this (via phone). I've tried every combination, but can't get the PIN sent to me...seems like it only works for US and Canadian users.    Any idea what I could do? 
Whenever I'm back home and wearing a suit for whatever occasion, guys will comment on my tie knot. I either wear FIH, or Half-Winsor.   Just a week ago some guy asked me how I could own such a nice suit, without knowing how to properly tie a tie, and started explaining how to do a chunky full-windsor. Other times it's been the same "Lemme show you how to tie a tie, that doesn't look good" etc.    Of course, I'm better than lashing out on beginners. I too once favored...
