Sport jacket with gingham shirt is almost a fashion cliche, but in this case it might be a smart solution some days of the week. Purple-on-white stripe is another potential tool. Epaulet happens to be one of the retailers that sells moleskin trousers, which can be an interesting alternative to chinos in cool weather.
[accidental click on Thumbs up] No, in this situation, all opinions are not equal. There probably is no image consultant or stylist with professional training who thinks that patterns always (or even usually) "draw attention to girth ". Sometimes experts are worth listening to. And having to post pictures that disprove the all-patterns-bad thing (which possibly nobody else on the forum has ever claimed) would be a somewhat off-topic nuisance.
The bolded part is alarmingly inaccurate as it pertains to dressy clothing. Yes, horizontal stripes tend to emphasize girth and for example small text on a large man's shirt can look off, but generally those are casual items. A solid white shirt meanwhile can strongly call attention to size. Checks and vertical stripes usually are good tools for larger men.Also, sweater color probably should be medium-to-dark gray or dark blue, in a thin, smooth fabric (wool or cotton...
The first type of shoe still might be a negative at movies or when shopping. To offer a better example (albeit with possibly less foot support) ->
That's a GQ look. What kind of help you want? Places to shop? We don't know your budget, location, etc. Edit: don't buy another black suit or wear a dark shirt with a tie.
Using only one pair of shoes will get noticed, especially as the pair inevitably looks more and more worn. It's also bad for shoe and foot health. The first two pairs above look very casual (meaning not "versatile"), and some would call the pea green ugly. The third pair might be okay.
There are various minor fit problems, but the shoulder fit is more than a minor issue, since it would require costly tailoring. It would be prudent to try other different brands in search of better fit there.
The pants can be salvaged. All they need is shortening. The jacket length is woefully short, and the sleeves are too short. That cannot be fixed, and therefore the jacket is unwearable.
It also allows the rare opportunity to wear a light green dress shirt.
A little darker would make it more versatile and a nice choice, but it should not be tight like that.
