Waist size would be more valuable than those descriptors. Don't worry about shoe shape, barring square-toe or other extremes. It's not a real issue for men in the normal height range.
No location mentioned means a guess. If there's a local retailer that sells Austin Reed, try it on. It should be better value than J. Crew, Macy's, low-end Calvin Klein, etc. There's also Suit Supply, as you've probably discovered by now, but it's more expensive and might fit too tightly.
Let's ignore the shoulders and the odd way the sleeves end. Then the shirt looks fine, except for the collar, which shouldn't cover so much neck.
http://www.diffen.com/difference/Boots_vs_Shoes If you like, ask a shoemaker whether he consider boots shoes. Your opinion on image consulting is not welcome here. Give it privately if you like. If you have an idea for making the signature less irritating (nobody knows everything), PM it. There's nothing wrong with properly answering a thread's question, and there was no goal of selling anything to somebody (likely a kid) who possibly stopped reading the forum on March...
The jacket shoulders look lousy from the back. One shoulder is higher than the other. A tailor can help compensate for that, though perhaps a physical therapist should be consulted. Other than that, the fit is okay.
No. Boots and shoes are both footwear.Where did the other reply go? It was valuable and meant to serve as an answer in case anyone searched on the topic. (The clothing part is too broad to answer beyond "slim.") To be a bit more precise, some casual black shoes can be okay with skinny gray jeans (if they aren't light gray), but that's a small percentage of black shoes. Many more black boots would be compatible, along with many brown shoes and boots (brown's lesser...
Hmm, the color philosophy sounds reasonable, but you probably should own some non-gator dress belts.
That's an interesting reply in both its good points and bad points. It's somewhat contradictory, in that burgundy with burgundy actually promotes the kind of tacky, obsessive matching it decries. Generally it's better to mix burgundy with medium or dark brown. Matching in level of dressiness is a strong point, though there can be a slight difference (as in a dark suede belt with calf leather shoes)..
Too much looking at butts lately.As with the previous thread, too tight in the seat and probably needs a bit more fabric at the hips and wider legs, to provide visual balance. (The pants are emphasizing big hip bones.) It seems to need more fabric just below the behind, to avoid that big curve.
Odds are he won't return here, but it sounds like he has unusually short arms (and a narrow waist). That would necessitate much alternations on the types of clothes mentioned. Whatever it is, if he needs much work done on TM Lewin shirts, which come in a very wide range of sizes, there might be no good off-the-rack brand for him. More comments on the original post: Based on the low price, the Ralph Lauren in question probably is a Lauren, which is "rubbish" and should not...
