Lighter jacket with darker trousers seems to be one of those great divides on SF - either you do it or you don't. I am known as one who does and usually don't even thing twice about it - heck I even hosted a Friday Challenge on light jackets and dark trousers. As for the specific combination of mid-grey and charcoal here's a fit I am quite happy with:I have done a number of iterations on that theme and I actually have two different mid-grey herringbone jackets - one tweed...
More CM casual than SW&D IMHONah, that's not what I mean...
Look charcoal trousers with a mid-grey jacket! Anyway, this looks great! Personally I'm not a fan of loafers and would have prefered shoes with laces (or perhaps Chelsea boots?), but that's just me....
Yup that's pretty much how kids address their teachers here. Good or bad, I don't know. It's just the way everyone is used to.

Australia and New Zealand use the titles of Mr and Doctor, in the same way as the United Kingdom."
Yup, looks pretty much right. That's what all women looks like in Sweden. Right @EFV @Anden?
This is interesting as here (in Sweden) I am used to students calling me by my first name and any other way always surprise me at first - it is inevitably foreign exchange students that do this. But then again Sweden is a very egalitarian society and there was a big language reform in the late 60s where formal addressing was deemphasised and eventually disappeared altogether. The word "ni" (the Swedish equivalent of the German "Sie") was replaced with "du" (same as in...
