Could be that it's been dry-cleaned and pressed to death. 
Suits, Sport Coats, Trousers, etc.    What are the cuts like for their suits and coats?  I know that they're made by St Andrews(or at least were), so quality wise they should be good.    I know they have a shop in London where they sell all above, but then again, I won't be traveling to London anytime soon. Kinda hard to find much info on their RTW stuff, as the data is drowned by other stuff made with LP cloth. 
For a work, I'd probably just buy three 500 buck suits, rather than one expensive.    Maybe Ralph Lauren, Hickey Freeman, BB, Suitsupply, Corneliani or something like that. There's a couple of Ebay sellers that sell brand new suits from above makers, usually priced around 400-600$ in conservative and staple colors. 
Only if you have a Ferrari jacket to go with 'em. 
The majority of executives I've seen the past years have usually worn very anonymous ties(solids/geometrics/stripes), or typical hermes/ferragamo with cartoon-like prints. All depending on which industry they're working in...    Almost always red or blue, and sometimes colors close to those.(maroon,burgundy,purple,etc.)
Wow, those shoes. Just wow. 
The standard AE Strand/PA/etc. lasts are incredibly boring, no doubt there. You don't need to be a menswear expert to see that those shoes targeted against conservative 40-50 year old Lloyds that enjoy wearing BB and Southwick sack suits.   AE do have some sleeker lasts named Rutledge and Harrison, a bit more expensive than ones mentioned above, but also better made (Independence collection).    But for the same price you have lots of other options too. Loake, Meermin,...
Found a BNWT Loro Piana suit(From the brand, not some random suit made in LP cloth). No idea what they're going for new, made by St. Andrews.   
It's a brand called "Moods of Norway", really popular over here( in Norway).  They're basically 1k$ fused designer suits with gaudy designs and wool-blendfabrics. They come with a golden tractor pin, if you take it off the same tractor motive is embroidered into the chest-pocket welt.    www.moodsofnorway.com     
Well, In my ad I stated that I would not take any returns, unless the item was damaged or not as described.    I then gave him detailed measurements, which he said looked good. Also informed him that one usually has to get some work done, before the fit is good.    Now two weeks later I get a mail stating that it didn't fit AND that it didn't look like pictured, and pointed out that it had to have been pinned on the pictures. So he's using the later as a reason for...
