My next EG MTO will most likely be one or two of the following: Holborn (2 eyelet derby) in tobacco suede on 82 last Bamford (wholecut loafer) without medallion in chesnut on 101 last Ladbroke (oxford) in burgundy on 82 last Westminster (double buckle monk), in chesnut or burgundy on 82 last
I stuff a small amount of tissue to keep mine from falling.
Given your size, I'd go for a 6 button double breasted with a ticket pocket, side vents, and single reverse pleat trousers with braces. Go for a more military silhouette, a la Dege or Huntsman, with a suppressed waist and set shoulders. If this is going to be a special occasion suit, then you might opt for a material like sharkskin in navy or charcoal that has a little sheen and pizaz.
I use Field here in DC. Highly recommended.

The London Lounge's home page has a photo of Gary Cooper wearing a Macclesfield tie: http://thelondonlounge.net/ BTW, I've been looking for one but with no luck. Where is a good source for Macclesfield ties, especially the black n white kind?

I use Field Tailors on Wisconsin Ave. They are the best in the area. C&Y looks more like an alterations shop than a bespoke tailor.
Yes, I too would choose a different tie. The shirt also seems a bit too formal for the jacket. Either go with a solid or very subtle check shirt and a lighter tie to bring out the blue windowpane in your jacket. Don't forget a pocket square! Like the jacket very much!
