It's like the beginning of a prison movie I'm afraid. You're new fish. Most of the people here won't admit that they were buying Kenneth Cole square toes and 80's style DBs with low gorges back in the day. Like anything else social, there's a pecking order. You just need to navigate through it: if you think it's worth it. My two cents.
A way to avoid this plight in the future would be to only own brogued shoes that are brown. And all your black shoes are bluchers. Don't own any brogued bluchers and you'd be set.Unless, of course, you're Japanese.
You've already been given some pretty good advice. If you can't find a retailer or a jacket and a pair of trousers like that on eBay your size, you may want to consider something like Indochino.

My guy measures, cuts all the cloth (jacket/vest/trousers) and makes the jacket. He has someone else make the trousers, someone else sew the button holes, and someone else work the lapels.
Everything just works. Well done.
