This is more my everyday look, white shirt and blue tie. Kamakura shirt is on it's first wear, and I'm really pleased with it, but was too impatient to wash it before wearing. Do they shrink a little after the first wash? I could do with the sleeves coming up half an inch (I 'manually adjusted' for this pic).       Suit - M&S Sartorial with Alfred Brown fabric - dark grey herringbone Tie - Lewin Shirt - Kamakura Links - Dalvey Belt - Bexley
My favourite thing at the moment is patterns that look like solids from a distance, in particular ties. All my favourite ones have small patterms that are much less noticeable from more than a few metres.

Thanks to all for your kind comments, tips and thumbs. Not sure whether I'll be more or less nervous when I do my second post now!
First ever attempt from me after lots of deep breaths! Pics still need a bit of practice. Be gentle....     Suit - Gieves and Hawkes Shirt - Tyrwhitt Tie - Maison de la Cravate Belt - Bexley
Tried a new area this weekend and was treated to a few personal pops. Shirt at the back that you can't read the label of is a Common People one, which I think is fairly OK, esp. new.
Not the most spectacular bargain, but I'm pretty happy with the price for such a staple:
Went to a shop in the slightly bigger town near me that I haven't been to before, as it's a bit further out and there are plenty to keep me busy in the centre, but was definitely worth the visit.
Had my first 'back room' experience this week. Went to a little shop I'd never knew existed before. It was all a bit over-crowded so didn't hold out much hope, but was checking one suit that looked OK. The lady then asked my size, because she had plenty more in the back that they didn't have room for in the shop. I offered to look myself and was welcomed into the back. Found the BB and TML suits, and the AR jacket below, plus some shirts not photographed yet. Suits were £8...
OP - perhaps you need to consider your suit choice more carefully. And while the shirt is plain white, is it double- or single-cuff, and is the collar point or spread? 
Velomatt's first suggestion is a good one for you, the light blue one. You've said that you worry that blue looks business-like, but if you wear a blue with some sort of floral motif it takes it away from the business look. Finally, when you narrow down your choices, let your wife decide. She'll like that you're asking her opinion, and don't we all want to look good for the other people in our lives?
