Brown that matches is okay if it's a normal shade. For brown shoes with brown belt, the only guideline is that the two shades not be very different (e.g., dark brown with little brown). There's an article....
Why so much fawning? Time for an injection of truth - the jacket is too tight in the waist and has improper button placement.
Skip the J. Crew chukka boots due to a pairing of likely fundamentally poor quality and mediocre quality. The other pairs look better but might not be much better. Probably none of those shoes would last long in damp weather. With that low budget, maybe the casual boot should be something like a Bean Boot - http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/506698?nav=ln-506697&page=men-s One reason for the limited help is that size and much about personal style have not been shared.
There's nothing wrong with the question, albeit it probably didn't deserve its own thread. There is not enough educational discussion on Style Forum - there are aesthetic rules, but not everyone instinctively realizes them and ought to want to know. Re the Trey Songz photo, yes that looks okay, partly because he has such a 'pretty,' attention-getting face and due to the jacket distracting from the pants, but the outfit is not very practical and the pocket square is silly...
That looks good. Florida might be rainy, and rain is not friends with suede. Edit: if it's going to be hot or on the beach, a compromise might be loafers or leather/canvas shoes.
Yes, despite clothing forums' general aversion to blue non-suit pants. Granted, if that is a sweater, a contrasting visible shirt color (white, pink, etc.) with it might put enough focus above the waist.
Unacceptable but unsurprising outcome. If off-the-rack fits badly, anything pseudo-bespoke not measured in person is unlikely to fit much better. The 'proper' way would be to get shirts custom-made locally or tailored to near-perfection and then have some sent in to be copied. Anyway, though ShirtMaven is the forum's expert and is worth summoning, at least part of the problem appears to be a common one, square shoulders. Perhaps better tucking could lessen some of the...
1) Small questions kind of thread, meaning should've gone there 2) The colors look good together, but in clothing, the more attention-getting color almost always should be above the waist.
A Gentleman's Best Friend? On ties, a location would help, and a budget is wanted. No point in recommending something in the wrong price range. Google with phrases like "tie shirt combinations" leads to some guides like this. http://www.tie-necktie-video.com/tie-and-shirt.html First rule is tie darker than the shirt. The mensimageconsultant site has an article about the types of ties needed for work.
The upper back seems to have excess material, and the shoulders appear to need to be rotated ($$), perhaps due to its occupant's square shoulders. By the way, the tie needs a bigger knot.
