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...
Does staple stuff sell much faster on Ebay than here?    Seems like nothing is moving here right now, so I'm thinking I'll just try Ebay. The only thing I'm worried about is getting scammed, but I don't know how frequent that happens with suits and such. 
St. Andrew looks like this       The Caruso will have a Purple colored tag, and the standard "Ralph Lauren Hand Tailored" + Name + Date tag
From personal experience, St. Andrews can have a bit more structured shoulders.  I own, and have owned a few from each, but never bothered to go through the fine details. I just like the styling of RLPL.    Some will say that St. Andrews has a bit more handwork and details. 
I had custom sized peak lapels (3.5"), and button stance lowered with 1"    If/when you order, you can shoot them an email regarding extra customization, and they'll guide you through any questions.    I think their slim notch lapels are 2" or 2.5", and normal width are 3". Not too much difference, but I'm a fan of wider lapels. 
Well, I got the cheapest option. Solid Navy for 449$, and it honestly feels and looks great. I now own a bunch of suits in very nice fabrics, and the blacklapel holds up pretty good. Doesn't wrinkle easy, has a soft hand, not too lightweight. I prefer it over my RLPL suit that's 10 times more expensive.    Here's a poor picture on how it turned out, after the jacket was remade (I screwed up on shoulder measurements the first time)      
You could check out online MTM, since you have a difficult size.   Personally I've only tried Black Lapel(www.blacklapel.com) but the results were good, keeping in mind that I took the measurements myself.    They offer half-canvass suits in staple colors from 450$ and up, and you can customize the suit any way you like. I ordered my suit two years ago, and they've grown a lot since then.    But then again, when is the wedding?
