Chris- The search tool is your friend. Many threads on wearing brown shoes and gray. Fewer threads on gray shoes and brown clothing.

About 3-4 months ago, I started some very minor upper body exercises at the gym, using machines, not weights....

He accessorizes well.

If you are looking to buy from the mall for price or the fact that there are no higher end Men's stores near you, consider getting a Merona suit (the wool version) from Target. Easily under $200.00 and the quality will be comparable to most of the mall options.
I was hoping Che would have been wearing a Che t-shirt
Warren- You might find that being snarky with a fair criticism is not a wise move. Frankly, I found the going a bit rough and I do read quite well. Try an approach that does not blame or ridicule the customer.
The second photo down on the right hand side of the original post has a very John Steed look. I wonder if Bunny Rogers was at all an inspiration. Some of the elements - the tapered trousers, the lack of cuffs, the boots, the sharply upturned bowler, and the considerable waist suppression - are all present in both.
