A light gray shirt probably would allow the most combinations without pushing the look into foppish or underworld territory. In some settings, a white shirt would almost be required. It would be very hard to wear that with both a pink shirt and a tie.
It looks like at least part of the problem is that the natural shoulders are very square. That might mean any jacket will need pricey alterations. Also, there is such a thing as size 43 - why do people act like there are no odd sizes?
Why must the shirts be Charles Tyrwhitt? The actual choices look okay, but extra slim fit when the waist is 36"? Pants - some cotton and some wool, from (presuming the budget is low) a place like Lands' End. Plain-front, not adjustable waist, gray for the wool, tan for the cotton, and perhaps an olive or (if there's no jacket) navy. The shoe budget needs to be at least $150, bought new and probably in person - and "wide toe" as in wedge-shaped foot? Edit: and not corrected...
Calvin Klein isn't good, but neither is it bad. Shorts and tee shirts on men well into their 30's - not a good idea when the weather or activity doesn't demand it. The pictured apparel is quite age-appropriate. When not required, black should be minimized by someone who naturally tends to look more unfriendly than he wants to.
The width makes it difficult. Fit does matter. Anything standard width ought to be tried on in person first, because 'standard' is a misnomer and a pair might be too narrow. Edit: Zappos has plenty of reviews that describe shoes as running wider or narrower than expected. Also, there's no one magic pair of shoes - a person needs a rotation to prevent accelerated damage to footwear. The Clark's might be worth keeping the rotation. What to...
1) Shoes are not the most important part of someone's wardrobe. 2) List your approximate age and your shoe size (length and width), which might help narrow down the options.
Much too red to go with yellow. Instead of that, consider a shirt or sweater with a bold pattern. The other suggestions were fine.
The jacket sleeves and legs are too long. Something else seems wrong with the pants, judging by the poor drape, but it is hard to pinpoint. The jacket is too tight in the upper back and should be let out at the waist. The ticket pocket was a not good choice at 5'5" - doesn't help perceived height.
Yes, in number 4, the scale might be a problem, making the shirt/tie combination look a bit hypnotizing.
If the tie decision hasn't already been made, the red paisley is aesthetically better than the brown and more versatile. The shirt-tie color combinations are done well, though the in the first one the tie looks a bit too casual for the shirt.
