Allen Edmonds' Last 8 fits a higher instep. Try on the Delray or the Rawlins. You might find them comfortable. I recommend you try getting sized at a retail outlet the first time, as opposed to jumping online to try shoes on. Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor both carry AE selections.
Wear whatever you want, just bring the confidence... and $300 just in case....

Can look it up if someone is actually curious. As an aside, I actually think the MTM Land's End shirts are great...
Mid- or gray-blue blazer and white shirt should look good. Alternatively, mid-gray jacket and ice blue shirt would be nice. I think the issue that has people a bit troubled is that the combination of pinstriped pants with a patterned jacket is going to look very busy.
