  I love this. Although maybe it would look a little better with a light blue oxford shirt or a blue vertically striped shirt? As it stands now I think the pants and the shirt and the pocket square are a bit much red. This would make the pocket square stand out a bit more, and I love that square.
I would have included some, but I like boots so I wanted to get a boot in there, and I felt that double monks were pretty similar to plain toe bluchers and loafers so they seemed a little redundant. I'm thinking about changing up my lineup and substituting a monk for either the PTB or the loafers, not sure.
^ Didn't notice that until you pointed it out. In general, how much are bespoke overcoats if you source the fabric yourself?
  FWIW SB I quite like the pairing of the sweater with the shorts. I agree with others that the shoe was the wrong choice here. Maybe not a chukka but instead a loafer? Just spit-ballin my rather inexperienced thoughts on the matter.   Maybe some people feel long sleeves with shorts are an incongruous look, but I like it. 
I've had bad experiences with J. Gilbert. They don't seem to want my money. I also haven't been too persistant in following up, but they haven't responded to emails nor let me know about orders when they said they would.
Everyone seems to love chesleas. I admit I like them, but I love different boots a lot more (balmorals are a favorite), what's the appeal that I'm missing?
[[SPOILER]] Do you know what fabric this is? I like it.
Thank you PSG. As you pointed out, those other threads are just random people weighing in to give the three shoes they would like to live with. As such it's just the reader trying to figure out what lifestyle/wardrobe they're talking about and try to see if that would work for me, rather than in here where I've specifically laid out criteria to meet.   Those other threads may have contributions from forum heavyweights, but given that forum heavyweights such as Manton,...
  Would you advise then that only the chukkas be in suede and the rest be all in calfskin and or shell?    
Very nice. Definitely fulfills a different set of goals than mine. What shoe is that?
