I quite like them. They would look good with a linen suit, but that's about all I'd consider them for
A navy or dark blue polka dot for me. Maybe a dark blue/light blue and silver/white diagonal stripe
But still, Zegna make cloth for the big name designers so it'll be quality
First picture with a white shirt IMO
There's not much difference between Barkers and Loakes except styling ... and that is subjective. Both are decent quality for the cash you pay.
It depends on colour and texture of the tweed. If it's brownish I'd go with white/cream chinos of the like, brown/tan brogues and a shirt with light blue in it, might be large line checks or solid colour. I wouldn't wear a tie if it's a jacket only, maybe a suit, but I would go with a losely folded pocket square.
Not sure about the gret trousers if I'm honest, but jacket and shirt are cool. I'd probably go with white/cream trousers for that jacket shirt combo, especially if you have brown shoes/belt. I'd also consider shortening the jacket length by 2", I don't like to see jackets hang below the groin V, but perhaps it's just the way you are stood. The sleeve length looks ok.
I have a knee-length Crombie overcoat. It has slash pockets because I prefer them for ease of use rather flap pockets, although flap pockets look smarter IMO. There's usually a factory sale on in or around Leeds every spring/autumn. I've never been to one, but I wouldn't expect vast reductions. Nice coats though.
I have no jacket with lapels wider than 2.5" but whether something is fashionable or not doesn't worry me in the slightest. You can wear whatever you want provided you get the look right e.g. You wouldn't wear narrow lapels with flared trousers, well you could but you'd just look daft. Getting the balance right is an artform in itself.
If you pay that much, when you can have one tailored for much less, you're just paying for the name and Burberry is not a name I'd pay for.
