It's Fay, not Joy: http://www.fay.com/   Can't see the exact coat though.  It is nice, certainly better than his effort this weekend. This isn't some resolution issue, the jacket genuinely does fade at the bottom:
I got the Visodate for my birthday earlier this year and love it.  The strap was a bit poor that came with it (bit thin and shiny) so I'd recommend getting a new strap for it - which is no great sweat bearing in mind the price.  The silver/white suits brown or black straps so you could get both and have a really versatile watch.
Yes, I'd say H&H are twice as good as H&C, but the slim fit isn't very slim at all.   Have you tried the John Francomb Classics Fully Fitted range at TM Lewin?  They're a very slim fit and I find the material to be generally better than standard Lewins as well.

Try stretching the placket and seams etc. when the shirt is wet before hanging.  It improves the situation, but this is an inherent problem with most Lewin shirts.  Reckon it must be the tension on the stitching being too high.
100% wool is best for starters.  Wool/linen is for summer, which is something you might experience when you leave Edinburgh for Australia    You can only see whether you suit slim fit or regular fit best by trying on.  There's not a huge difference between the two at Tyrwhitt, and I think 38L Regular and 40L Slim fit me pretty equally from Tyrwhitt.   Whether or not you get reliable recommendations in any shop purely depends on who you end up with.  You could just make...
