Definitely get navy first. If you search for "black suits", you'll get many heated discussions, but the prevailing opinion will be to just don't do that.   You didn't write where you are located, but take a look at the recommendations above (Suitsupply and the suit quality thread for options). How fast do you need your suit? It is always risky to recommend a new operation like that when there is no previous experience. IMHO, a safer and faster option would be to just...
IIn principle, there is nothing wrong with the outfit you propose. In terms of colors, you should worry about what makes you comfortable rather than what attracts the women - some people get away with bright colors, while others would look silly. Beware of very bright colors though - while they can be fun sometimes, they are harder to combine well and you'll find shades of grey, navy and brown more versatile.Check this thread for inspiration on casual "classic" looks...
When you buy your first suit, don't buy it online. There are too many variables that come into fit of a suit, and it is really much easier if you go to a store which has many suits in different cuts, to try what works for you best. Once you have a jacket that fits you well, you can compare the measurements with Ebay, B&S etc. but I wouldn't start off that way.   In terms of brands, Suitsupply has a good reputation here and fits your budget, and their cuts are rather...
^ Check this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc . Also this one: http://www.styleforum.net/t/10830/shoe-care-supply-checklist/0_100
^ Try asking the tailors in the tailors' thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions   Other than that, my understanding is that as long as the shoulders and chest fits, the waist can be taken in, within reason, the same way you would do it with a regular jacket. But, do you plan to wear the overcoat over a suit? If yes, you should absolutely try it on with a suit jacket, before you decide on the fit and...
^Mike, I have to say that I always find your fits very inspiring. There is never an element which would stand out by itself, and the whole thing feels always very harmonious. Keep up the good work!
If you wear ties and jackets, solid shirts are indeed the mainstay (some would even declare the light blue solid shirt to be the OneShirt, ). However, if you only wear a shirt (+ maybe a sweater) with no tie, you can afford to wear a shirt with a bolder pattern since there is no tie to clash with. IMHO, the pattern on the shirt creates some welcome visual interest in such an ensemble which can be otherwise quite bland. So, I wouldn't sweat it - just don't wear your...
Eith, take a look at this thread - http://www.styleforum.net/t/338954/streamlined-shoe-wardrobe/0_100. Also, this article sums up similar points too - http://putthison.com/post/27558524428/the-seven-shoe-wardrobe-the-longer-i-write-about. If you don't wear suits often, your one black pair of oxfords (AE Harrison) is probably going to be sufficient, and otherwise, you can focus on derbies, loafers, monks (and boots, although I suspect you don't need those so much in...
That's one beautiful bag, congrats!
^ If you are in Switzerland, I believe Brogue in Geneva (www.brogue.ch) caries some Carmina models. Other than that, ordering directly from Carmina is usually the cheapest, if they have the model you want. Also, the prices in their Spanish stores are the same as in the webstore, while the Paris store is a bit more expensive (last time I checked). A couple of affiliates here also sell their shoes: http://skoaktiebolaget.se/tags/carmina, UniPair, Epaulet (besides Armoury,...
