Campaigning is not good for your shoes and clothes, there is a lot of wear and tear that you cannot avoid. Seeing Sen. Obama, I won't say he is a slob, just a candidate for the highest office in his country who has no time or energy to make wardrobe maintenance.
You are in the process of becoming an officer and gentleman! Are you going to dance in dinner jacket, or tails and white tie, which is the norm for a Vienna Opera Ball - see the director of the Vienna opera, he is in full ceremonial white tie, with his decorations and orders in full, not in miniature. For the dinners and parties before, go for the dinner jacket, if you do not want to wear your Navy ceremonial dress (which will be appropriate), you can wear a red cummerbund...
Crema Nubiana 1888 (rebranded Crema Alpina for Bata) you can find it in every Bata shop, it is liquid and extraordinary!
They look pretty decent, seeing on an other forum a total disaster made by very respectable bespoke houses, at an astronomical price! Did the maker offered a final fitting, or it is just measurement and delivery? You seem to have a slight disbalance between left and right side of your body (which is pretty normal) so the person who got your measurements should had made that visible on your "diagnose", but all in all they are pretty decent.

Undershirts will be visible under thin shirts! A good quality shirt will not show what is under (you can see even pilosity under thin shirts). So buy shirts that will not be so thin that will show what is under (put your hand in between the fabric, if you can see it, it is too thin).

Did not said morning coat/black tie/white tie range, just a plain, boring, black suit.A A diver's watch is too sporty for the looks of a diplomat, so go for a vintage slim swiss made one. It looks like a family heirloom, they are classy,...
