Black shoes would be better than mid-brown for "evening casual." And those Cole-Haans have soles that are really too casual for a jacket. Wear a white shirt. The other easy option, blue, wouldn't go well with blue pants and a blue pocket square.
Skin color, eye color, and hair color. The prevalence of blue eyes makes blue clothing more accepted than purple or green.
Personal coloring plays a role in that. Purple is closer to personal coloring than is green and therefore multiple purple pieces doesn't look as bad as multiples of green. "Bad" often means unnatural or abnormal, probably both with an underlying threatening association, Gray is a neutral, so combining it mainly has the risk of looking lifeless..
Someone who was seriously considering a black $100 Pronto Uomo suit shouldn't be buying (without trying on first) from eBay or even a more reliable online website. Abboud half-canvassed for $500 - maybe okay. Jos. A. Bank Signature Gold (half-canvassed) might be available for about that, depending on color and size. Fit and other basics should be understood first.
You're right - the chest creasing shouldn't be there.
The blue question is too easy to answer Actually, it could be pedantic, going beyond not with patterns or black or a bright color.Orange maybe with dark gray, but it always would be better without a tie.
The forum would have you ask such questions in http://www.styleforum.net/t/164402/ask-a-question-get-an-answer-ask-all-quick-questions-here To answer the questions, probably too formal for chinos and at least as mismatched with jeans. The finish is too smooth and shiny. If the shoes were suede, likely "suitable." The color is compatible with chinos and jeans that aren't dark, and even in those cases sometimes it's okay (but never with black).
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.
