Wear textured or matte, not-so-sleek lace-up medium or dark brown leather shoes. For example, http://www.zappos.com/p/sorel-madson-wingtip-lace-pebble-mud/product/8708548/color/661376 If it has a square or bicycle toe, don't buy it. Also, while there's nothing inherently wrong with wingtips, that style is associated with someone who works in an office.
Incompatible with "Hiker" boots. If boots have a thick, contrasting sole, they probably are too casual for wear with a leather jacket.
Of those, the third option by far makes the most sense. Of course there are other retailers. For example, Nordstrom Rack. Edit: http://www.yoox.com/us/49217693KQ/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=49217693KQ&sizeId=2 However, that's only worth the risk if already familiar and happy with the fit in Canali.
Machine washable suits exist. There is nothing worth recommending, as there are always ways to acquire cheap, better suits that aren't washable. That said, Google will lead to the ill-advised item.
Midnight blue might be easily noticeable upon daytime entry, and standing out like that is not ideal. (It's not like the hosts and many other guests would know that black should be reserved for evening.) Therefore, black would be safer.
The first model has a rather high heel. That might benefit a shorter man and might be bad for a tall man. Burgundy does exist for Gucci loafers, and that color has more potential for khakis/suits dual-use.
They probably would go best with moleskins or corduroys.
A polo shirt, also. Basically, if it's more formal than a tee shirt or henley and less formal than a white dress shirt, it's probably okay.
Don't order multiples from a brand not tried before. Have shirts from several different brands. (T.M. Lewin is another worthwhile option.) It can only hurt reputation to be the guy who seems to wear the same shirt every day Variety in brands, materials, etc. helps provide some visual variety. Of course so would color variety. Collar shape is dependent mostly on face shape. Without pictures, who knows.
Maybe goat? https://www.amazon.com/Tony-Lama-Boots-Mens-6978/dp/B0097547R6 That appears to have a few shallow holes. They might be pockmarks.
