 Allen Edmonds makes some shoes with a straight back seam, which makes me wonder about the quality of that construction method. 
We usually associate A&S with double-breasted suits, but if they made this single-breasted suit for Prince Charles, I love it.  The shoulders have a good angle, they're not too sloped, and the sleevehead is natural.  The waist suppression is done nicely too.  These photos are from 1981 if it helps to determine the maker of the suit.

Beautiful cashmere Mr. Pink.  I was curious about the weight?  [[SPOILER]]
Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, and Apparel Arts from the 30s often paired a grey sportscoat with grey trousers.  I think it's a good look YRR92.
