Looks like a fine cordovan/crup to me.
I'm also similar in stature to you and would suggest it is worthwhile you looking at Armani suits ( sale prices if your budget is tight) for more formal attire. If you ever visit Northern Italy where the guys are often of our stature, you'll find, as I did, stores full of stuff the will fit without alteration (even down to mass market but reasonable quality 'intermissimi' T's & underwear. Good Luck!
Seems to be sitting a little high on the head, else perhaps tilted backwards? ~I'd try a larger size to compare.
Look similar to some Sebago Norwegians I owned but they had a mixed leather composite sole.
My humble opinion is not to buy stuff that might just fit & look OK if a really good tailor made lots of alterations. Instead of taking such a gamble I'd advise you try on different designer's RTW suits to see which fit you the best, for example I know a 48R jacket from Armani or Donna Karan is likely to be cut to my body shape, but a 48R from Dolce Gabbana is likely to be too long/narrow for me. Once you establish which brand is likely to fit, wait for the sales & go...
Also various shades of khaki and of brown.

Hate is too strong a word but I sometimes pull a face on the inside when I see : 1. Big Logos on T-shirts (Emporio Armani . D & G etc., & rip-offs of same) 2. Low slung underwear-exposing denims (on guys) - please buy a belt/longer leg size! 3. Extremely pointy 'fashion shoes' Prada/D&G do a few - only look OK on Coco the clown at the circus, maybe.
