I don't know that a .5 inch difference is that unusual, considering that you ordered shirts in a wide variety of fabrics. But if some of them don't fit anymore, bring them to Joe the next time he is in town and ask him what he can do for you. Usually he's pretty accommodating about fixing things.
I wish the lapels were a little wider, the gorge a little lower, the buttoning point a tad lower, the pants cuffed instead of hemmed, the sleeve pitch adjusted, and the waist given a bit of definition. But your question is whether anything is "really off," and I think, apart from the shoes (which stuck out at me), the answer is no.

Do you intend to wear it untucked like that? If not, it probably needs an addition two inches or so of length.

You'll need a few to get the fit right, and there's no reason to waste a lot of money doing so. I've found the fabrics...
If the OP was actually shilling a product he's selling, instead of asking a good-faith question, why would he point to an aspect of the product--e.g., the unusual tag--that appear to call its authenticity into question?

I remember Ron (RIDER) saying that having a shank is overrated. Shanks are needed only when the waist area of the shoe is thinned/beveled so much that you NEED the metal shank to give support. I'll find that thread and post here. I'm no...

I believe the justification for the 360 degree welt is that it allows them to make a shoe without a steel shank, which they claim makes the shoe more comfortable to walk in.
