Frankly, I am in the final part of the same project - 3 suits to go - then I can spend money on a good pair of shoes - EG or Vass, or some other goodies! Congrats!

Go with the charcoal grey one, more versatile, works also with a white shirt - that will allow you a wider array of ties to choose from - including greens, purple, etc (as you are wearing both the suit and the shirt in non-colors!) The shoes are worth a good shine - see the posts on that subject, and I think that you will have a good looking outfit!
Trying to reply to the original post - yes there are connaisseurs and there is group think! But also a lot of information, great outfits, some not very great, a bunch that I would not put on me, like in all communities! Also trends - yes Rubinacci is great, but there are also other great or good tailors, bespoke is a marvelous option, but there are well cut, well fitted MTM or OTR suits, people that are trying to look well dressed and people which are well dressed.

Grey, dark to medium, hopsack - Dr. Holiday posted a great one - or herringbone, donnegal, preferable cashmere, can do either dressed sporty or casual. And I can suggest as a third one the gun check, it pairs good with flannels or cords. My 0.02 euros

There are a lot of good suits that are not A&S or what ever, see T. Mahon's blog - The English Cut. Also there are good suits on the Ebay - look at A. Harris store, and there is also Filene's, Simms etc. where yoi can find decent things at very decent prices. Ron Rider has great shoes at great prices, the web is full of good things, you just have to do your homework. Not every one is full of money, but we manage to find the best possible deal!
