I don't think the jacket length is an issue at all. "Appropriate" jacket length is at about half way up the thumb if you're holding your hands to the side.
Shoes question - Dark navy suit. What is more "appropriate"? - Medium Brown Museum Captoes - Dark Brown Wingtips
I agree with your comment about the sizing. They will ALWAYS try to sell you a size that is too small for you. Look at how they are dressed - most of the guys have jackets that are just too tight and cinching everywhere. Some of the guys are dressed well, others not so much.That said, for the Napoli, I found that it fits a smidge on the big size. I'm a standard 40 everywhere and I found myself wearing the 38 fine without feeling it was too tight. But, like you said,...
For all of you skinny guys that buy chinos/rigid chinos, do you find them too baggy? I tried them on once like 5 years ago in store and found them way too baggy for me. Did I try the wrong ones?
As a person who is getting married this coming June, I find the whole "wedding colors" concept absolutely ridiculous - biggest marketing scam in the wedding industry.

I was just going to suggest SS when I saw your postscript at the end. Your first link isn't working. As for dark grey, the JCrew suit looks very dark charcoal.

Yep, take it from me. I had a great pair of low straights that I had to buckle and wash b/c I would be very active in them and sweat quite a bit (with dancing). They got so bad they absolutely wreaked just after 3-4 months of wear. Freezer wouldn't work. I had to wash in hot wash and air dry in the sun - did this 2 times in 2-3 weeks just to get that stench out. Now, I rarely go a long time b/w washes if I sweat. If I'm just casually using them, sure, I can go 6-8...
