Is it just the lighting or is the Summer Oxford tan suede different from the other two?

I bought this BB clearance outlet shirt off of eBay for my wife but it's a little too tight for her. It's a white, straight collar, oxford cloth (Supima?), long sleeve shirt that has been worn and laundered once. Side gussets. Locker loop in back. Mother of pearl buttons. It's a very nice shirt. Tag marked inside tag to prevent retail store return. SOLD
I bought these Church's in Hong Kong in the mid 90s and have not worn them for the past decade at least. They are taking up space in my closet with cedar trees and there is little chance I will wear them again. The heel has been replaced and is unworn and the sole looks to have life left in them. There are creases, some nicks and scratches so if you're looking for a cheap beater/rainy day shoe then maybe this could be the pair if you topy them. Looking for around $50...
A pic of my vintage manual Rolex 6420 from 1958. Bought it in Hong Kong 16 years ago and never wear it. The dial was re-finished and just had it authenticated at my local Rolex AD. Will probably sell on TZ after replacing the strap. It's a boy's size I think and the second pic is next to my Breitling which is a mid-size at 35mm in diameter:

Just remembered I took my new suit jacket to this place too after it was "tailored" in SF by BB. There was a collar bubble and an issue with the vent which they fixed quickly in time for me to attend a funeral a couple of days later. psguy, I've read on Yelp there is a place right near the Whole Foods on Newell called Arachne's Thimble? I never used her. If you find a good tailor near you then let me know as I live in Moraga.
I'm a noob when it comes to tailoring but I've been using Advanced European Tailoring on Addison in Berkeley (off Shattuck near University) recently to tailor a sportcoat, some pants and shirts. I'm happy with their work and their shop is sort of on my way to work. There are a number of reviews on Yelp and I think I saw them mentioned on SF when I did a search. Good luck.

I guess I can still wear the original and well-worn black leather strap too.
