I'm looking at purchasing a pair of Peal perforated cap toes in burgundy. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.®-Medium-Perforated-Captoes/MH00234_____DKRD_09H__D___,default,pd.html I believe they are C&J. Can anyone confirm? If so, I wear an 8.5E UK size in the 348 last and whatever last the Islay is on. Does anyone know how to translate this to Peal US sizing? All sources seem to say 8.5 converts to 9US, but I typically wear a 9.5, so I'm not sure what to make of it.

There is a strong dislike for navy pants on this forum. There is also a strong dislike for having a the jacket lighter than the pants. In addition, there is a dislike of wearing suit pants with rustic sportcoats. I agree the most with the last one, but the other 2 points have some merit. If the OP wears navy suit pants with this jacket, it probably won't work out well. Maybe something lighter than navy would work, and preferably not worsted suit pants. This might mean...
Agreed, though I'm not sure I've ever seen a wool knit. A silk knit should still be fine, or a wool tie would work as well. Burgundy and navy (among others) would work fine.
This is a tough color to pair given that it is gray. Which picture is more representative of the darkness of the color, the first (very light) or last (very dark)? If it is closer to the last, then you can probably get away with light gray pants, but I would probably go with light brown (tan) to get a tonal difference as well. If it is lighter than the last pic, then I'm not sure what to pair it with. Maybe not-quite-navy blue?
Charles Tyrwhitt has one that is 3/4 length. It also has a ticket pocket, not sure if that bothers you.
The Park Ave is more formal than the Kenilworth.
Tough to say, at least for me. I take an 8.5E for both the 348 and 365. I don't get heel slip in either. I do seem to have a bit more room in the forefoot in the 365. However, since the Islay is a boot, it is tough to say if I don't get heel slip because the heel is still snug or because it is a boot, and the lacing can be done up much tighter.
I finally got my Roma suit from the outlet. In terms of fit, the jacket is similar to the Napoli, though with a lower buttoning point. It looks high in the pictures, but I suspect that is mostly because the jacket is extremely long. I got a 42S, and this jacket is longer than some of my 42reg from other lines, like Brooks Regent and Coppley. The good news is the pants fit as expected, instead of being super-skinny like the Napoli, and I believe a drop-6 vs a drop-7.
While just trying on a suit in the store, the salesman cut the vent threads, so I'd say you're fine
