My perspective only goes back as far as 2009, however I think the OP represents a somewhat rose-tinted view of the forum, particularly the B&S section. When the Woodbury Common frenzies were in full swing and some of those items ended up on B&S, I for one didn't have a problem with that. I bought three or four RLPL items back then, in full knowledge the seller was making a good profit on the purchase price. So what? Their time isn't free and I still thought I was...

Yes the Nevis is on the 606 last. Took the same size as my Dover on the 606 and the fit is good.
For sale I have a NWT RLPL suit in the rare size of 42L, more specifically 42L Drop 6 (hence the pants are tagged 36).

Prices are a little higher than you state. My...

If you have access to a good alterations tailor then it is advisable to ask him/her to press the suit. I've never been brave enough to try this myself. So the short answer to your question is - yes, the creasing on those suits can be removed with a professional pressing. The tailor would normally do this by hand on a large ironing board with an attached sleeve board. The suit in the third link has been hung on a wire hanger. These don't provide adequate support for...
