 Like the first pic. Not my choice but it goes together well. The second pic. I'd go with a navy blazer or brown cord jacket.  I think you'll need a fedora and a violin case.  Just kidding.  Looks good, but if it was me I'd go with a 3 button jacket (not a fan of 2 buttons) although it does look well, and probably go with a gold and navy paisley pocket square
 I find they dry with a whitish residue on them. Looking for a hard neutral polish myself.Currently wearing a pair of old pattern Loakes no longer available to buy. Must be 20 years old at least and still in good nick
I have around 6 pairs of Loakes ranging from their brand of desert boots to their Rome moccasins and some discontinued lines. They're excellent value mid range shoes which will last years
You'll need light colours. A pale blue button-down shirt, white, cream or light grey trousers. If I wear different coloured jacket and trousers without a tie, I'd go for a puff-folded pocket square
Loafers look good but you've got to know how to wear them ... and I'm not talking about just pulling them on your feet
 I agree with you 100%, it's always gotta be a tie for me and the higher the opening gorge on the jacket, the better IMO. A lot of my mates wear DB suits but it's more of a winter thing; they don't look right open. Quite a few mates are going do the path of having a jacket only made and wearing them with complementary trousers, shirt and tie. Looks great if you can carry it off, sadly I don't have the figure to carry it off these days
They can look good but I would never wear one being a bit portly; I'd look like the station master seeing off the trains. A few of my frinds wear them but they are generally made of the same material their suits are made from. The biggest advice I can give is to stay away from the novelty ones.
 I would never wear black trousers with a navy blazer, even in brilliant sunlight. In the dark you'd look like you are wearing a strange fitting suit. Stick with grey, khaki, cream and white, maybe even a very pale blue.
If it was me, I'd go for off white or pale cream trousers with plain black shoes not brogues. I'd go with a pale blue solid pattern shirt or a black and white gingham pattern, both with button collars. I wouldn't wear a neck tie unless it's a DB blazer and I'd probably go with a loosely folded pocket square in a blue, navy and gold pattern.
When I've asked for trousers to be taken-in the tailors alsways wants to do it from the knee downwards but sometimes I have to tell him I want some of the slack taken out of the thigh area too. I too have large calf muscles which tends to cause problems with legs riding up and sticking or holding a crease. Therefore for dress trousers I tend to ge for bottoms around 17 or 17.5 inches. For me, I hate bunching at the bottom of the leg so the width of the trouser bottom...
