First, congratulations on turning your life around and getting out of depression! Shop before you buy. Look at men's fashion magazines, web sites such as this, go to departments stores and men's shops, ask well-dressed friends where they shop and join them one afternoon. Make a note of what you like and try stuff on. This will cost you nothing. After you find a few pieces you like, buy carefully - a piece at a time and usually on sale. Refine your style over time (it...
The key is to have your alterations measured by the tailor -- not a sales person. If you are measured locally and the work is done in NYC, there could be some disconnect. I doubt BB Black Fleece has any unique construction that any competent local tailor could not handle. I have purchased suits, sport coats, trousers, etc. from my local BB, Nordstroms, NM, Dillards, etc. that have needed alterations.

Cocaine used to be the sign you were making too much money. Now, it is clothes.
I suggest a nice down comforter. This lovely lady will bring one to you and tuck you in bed.
Looks like a wear spot. Keep your elbows off the table.
It's difficult to make navy pinstripe pants not look like orphaned suit trousers. Combing them with a window pane jacket could be a clash of patterns. I have a pair of gray odd trousers with light double pinstripes that look good with a navy blazer and white shirt. Gray pinstripe trousers are more versatile than navy, and better if the stripe pattern is different than typical suits.
The shoes are the least of his worries. Jacket is too short and too tight, trousers taper too much and bunch up at the shoes and he looks like he slept in the suit. The suede shoes are nice, but not paired with that suit. They would look better with a country tweed or glen plaid suit, or navy blazer and charcoal trousers.
