1 pair of black shoes ought to be enough for anyone. I would definitely go for burgundy next, and then a dark brown
Pretty close to a Patek Calatrava
You are hosting a wedding . You are meant to stand out. I would suggest mid gray trousers, mid brown brogues to catch the country theme, a chambray shirt in white/icy blue or pink; a white or oatmeal linen blazer. Tie optional but a linen or tussah silk nubby one would work well.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this cut for business wear. It looks most flattering on most people especially if bespoke. Would probably use a different fabric from the one in the photo though :-)
Very helpful. Now what can be done about the edges of the lapel curling upwards. I thought it was because of lack of canvass but perhaps not. It could well be the fabric (it is 50 50 wool mohair at around 260 grams) pretty stiff with a rough handle

Gray, khaki, creme in endless shades, and fabricS. Plain, textured and checks. Stripes don't really work in trousers either unless part of a suit. Happy hunting.
If you get the tie width at the knot area right (try sam hober ties) then there is nothing like 4 in hand. It chisels aways facial fat while Windsor add to it. If using commercial ties I prefer half Windsor bit make sure you get a long enough one.
Also on the pinch test the lapels just feel thin
Well there is roll worth speaking about, when i touch the chest piece there seems to be a discontinuity just before the lapels start were it seems to become much thinner, and finally on my mohair jacket the edges of the lapel curl by the end of the evening - a bit like poor shirt collars do.
