Classic wedding ties are often checked—macclesfield, houndstooth, glen plaid, shepherd's check—and have a simple colorway. http://www.drakes.com/online-shop/ties/classics/woven-end-on-end-8cm-silk-tie http://www.drakes.com/online-shop/ties/classics/woven-end-on-end-8cm-silk-tie-7834 http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=46105046 (For illustrative purposes—leave off the insignia!)
Alright. Here are some personal suggestions, but I have no idea what "cost efficiency" means to you or what areas you frequent. For a sports coat or a full suit, I would go to Sam Wazin at 57 West 57th Street. Excellent quality, definitely not the least expensive. For the trousers, I would probably go to Cardelino on 5th Ave near Madison Square Park since they need waist work. You have to be sure to check the work, though. I've had some minor issues, but they were eager...
A silver tie would look great with a white shirt and charcoal suit and works day or evening.

I guess I'll just toss my JL Williams in the bin, then.
Jeans might look odd because the fabric/color echos a faded denim. I'd stick with light-colored cotton trousers. White. Cream. Khaki. Warm tones may work well. You're right about it being casual, and it also looks spring/summer.
Stray cat strut, I'm a ladies guy... They were worn ironically by the hipster set in the '80s and it's 30 years later. Fashion moves in cycles.
I'm not overly familiar with belts from either company, but most fashion belts are made of inferior leather with inferior finishing. I would not expect either of these brands to be an exception. This brand is made in the US and is a pretty good value for the price: http://www.torinoleather.com/default.asp
I'm not sure if they're big enough, but Randolph Engineering offers their frames in a variety of sizes. They produce sunglasses and frames for the US military, so I'd guess they supply some large ones. http://shop.randolphusa.com/sunglasses-c4.aspx
