I've never sold anything on SF or any other forum for that matter, or on ebay, and have several items I'm looking to sell. How can I signal my reliability as a seller? What are the most common methods of payment? When exactly do payments take place (eg after buyer receives order, before order ships)??
(I looked at the buying and selling sub forum but couldn't find an equivalent to this thread)

My own personal "rule" for pant length is that when standing up straight, the pants should touch the tongue and back...
I'd say definitely go for Thick as Thieves. I have a similar body as you and have ordered two suits from them that fit me great. You can visit their website at http://www.thickasthievesla.com/ or their SF thread at http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=27754

Ummm… no. It was snowing and when I came in I decided to take some pics, somewhat impulsively I might add.

yep, my two TaT, and the other suit I own, have the same lapel widths, which go pretty well with ties of the same width, which is pretty much the only ones i buy

i'm not sure, but it is definitely not paint flaking off but rather splintering of the material
