Here is a 9 shoe at virtual clothes horse that you'll probably either love or hate. grapevinehill was carrying brown suede shoes from polo (CJs and other levels of quality) that were worth watching too.
Blazers are great (especially if they include things with horn buttons -- not just metal). They're very versatile and essential for things like striped or slightly pattened slacks.
Couldn't agree more that leather is an excellent choice if chosen wisely. Quality and construction will vary both on the leather and the underlying furniture. Some pieces are built to essentially be disposed of once the leather wears out (i.e., not really intended to be re-upholstered); others are built to last a lifetime. Unlike fabric, leather looks and feels better with age. For a more traditional look (but not completely, e.g., includes transitional pieces) ...
It's been my (admittedly limited) experience that Lesser was more expensive
I'd also suggest considering other sources, e.g., Lesser

Lance is extremely reasonable. You might be able to work out something with him in advance where he'll either measure the sleeves for you or perhaps refund if promptly returned. Are you looking at the Blue Truzzi with thin lime green stripes? I happen to fit RTW reasonably well (at least in select brands) but if I didn't I'd go custom. It's not too outrageous and for some makers (e.g., Jantzen though I personally have not tried him) it's completely price competitive.
I agree with Roger. I have the Clifford and it's mildly chiseled.
I'm almost positive they both come in different lengths. Sleeve length may be altered relatively cheaply
Not cheap (though deals may be found) but incotex makes shorts that are slim fitting and otherwise amazing fit. I recently got a pair of cotton/linen from Filenes Basement (from Louis Boston)
