Brooks Bros?
Trusted AP.
I'm in a similar situation. Shirts shipped from NMWA more than a week ago - to Shopmate in Oregon, which should take two days at most - and not a peep from them since.
I'm just unsure what's going on in WT's photos. In the first the jacket seems very long with a low buttoning point. In the second it seems very long with a high buttoning point. In the third it looks fine. I have no issue with the links, beyond colour, and the dogma that they should only be worn with suits and never with button down shirts (if it is). I think the square is also fine - if a little flamboyantly displayed - and the moulded-sole shoes are OK - even if a little...

This is good advice. You could do much worse than to follow what the Yanks do with white bucks. Ribbon belts. Casual brown or navy OK. White never.
