Not really. Not sure anyone in the Baltimore area carries Alden. The only decent store in Baltimore is Samuel Parker, which is not in walking distance of the Inner Harbor. You can check out Victor Pascal, though many think he is overpriced. You might be better off catching the train and seeing the Alden store in DC (on F Street). Don't know if its still open. Then catch a taxi and visit Field English Custom Tailors. A short walk takes you to Sky Valet Shoes,...
For suits and shirts, you will have to go the made to order route to get anything that approaches decent fit. I use English-American tailors in Westminster, MD.

Gorgeous shoes. I thought they were based out of Austria, not Romania. Or did they just outsource the manufacturing there?
I wouldn't regard either of the coats as "trench coats," (far too short). I don't believe trench coat serves the same purpose as a wool coat. You wear wool to stay warm, trench coats to stay dry.
Got the same bag in the canvas creme/light beige color w/leather trim. Held up very well through admittedly light use. Very voluminous.
If you are willing to travel about an hour north, you can visit English-American tailors in Westminster, MD. Discussed extensively on the boards. No relationship to me beyond satisfied customer.
I think you are okay. I would prefer a solid belt to match the shoes, but I can't stand a white belt. The bucks and the pants are great. Relish in the work you will need to do to keep those bucks white. I think you would do better with a lighter shade of blue -- carolina blue -- socks.
