Carmina are extremely well made with a beautifully waisted sole on the one pair I own. I'd say my super soft black calf pair comfortably match C & J benchgrade at least & are close to handgrade IMHO. Campers for ultra comfortable casual wear ( throw away when soles get worn down without crying over the expense).

Pale crepe soles IMHO are to be avoided as in my experience they prove impossible to clean and look very scruffy after a very few outings (even tried household heavy duty cleaners with bleach in etc.) ...unless of course someone could enlighten me if they have discovered a way to clean them effectively?

Quit smoking asap - or watch as choice of lighter becomes very low down on your worry list...
I'd go even plainer - remember the thing has to look good with whatever you are wearing hopefully for many decades - the thing will still show its age somewhat due to the thickness of the band. Think simple honest/direct statement not fashion statement.

You are correct - Church's go to 'H' fitting in a few models - never thought I'd try on a pair of shoes that were too wide but...
These tie and short sleeved combo's used to be the preserve of our Israeli distributors when I worked in high tech in the '90s. We UK based guys didn't comment figuring it was probably so hot out there that we'd probably end up wearing eccentric stuff in their position. Interesting about the surgeons comment earlier - I'd rather they didn't wear a tie if/when operating on me !
The suit looks good on you - maybe try rolling the pants up 1 or 2 inches to see if you prefer the 'break' against the shoe with them slightly shorter.
