^ that's a really great coat.
JCMeyer, your suit looks pretty good overall. Some observations for what they are worth, if you are open to comments. I think the cut of the jacket makes your shoulders look overly sloped when I can see that your shoulders do not appear particularly sloped without the jacket on. This sloping effect tends to draw the eye to the midsection as opposed to elongating your frame. Would you consider slightly narrower lapels? These seem a little wide for your frame, although...
I have looked at a reasonable representation of the past several SLP collections. DWW pretty much articulates my views and conclusions.

I kind of like the all black ones better as a creeper option. I bought a pair of Dries derbies on sale instead and find them to be better made.
Five Story sadly discontinued their men's line a couple of seasons ago so not surprised. They used to have great stuff.
