Definitely not. Nice boots but too clunky for a gray flannel, at least for the purposes of traditional good taste. Though pairing that combo with a bunch of bracelets and a murse might get you on a blog.
DD's lunatic lapels were look-at-me #menswear before there was #menswear.
Seems like an observation that can only be made from deep within the menswear paradigm, meaning it would never occur to anyone who doesn't post on a clothing forum and most of those who do. As such, I don't think I'd worry about that particular dead cat.
I find the Tie Bar knits poor. Thin, prone to pulls and the dots on the dotted ones come loose very quickly. The knits from Lands' End are pricier but much better value, IMO. (Unless they've downgraded them in the last few months.) Silk knits are the only ones I like. Wool feels like wearing a sock around your neck.
As one of the originators of the B&S mega-thread, I can tell you I didn't do all that work out of a sense of brotherhood and goodwill. As such, I take a less charitable view of the old B&S than many do. Back in the day, people were still making money -- often lots of money.

Thankfully, there are very nice squares available at reasonable prices these days, such as through Kent Wang and vintage on eBay. So no need to resort to department store cheapies, unless you just happen to find a good one.
I would think that the coat being RTW would be an essential part of the professorial equation. I don't know why you'd pay a bespoke premium for that look.
