You've already got the black and brown, I think a burgundy is a good choice for a third shoe. I have PA in Merlot, I think the color is great.

Cole Haan has a lot of different shoes, made by different manufacturers. I have some Made in USA loafers that are pretty decent. I also have a pair of Benchmade in England (I suspect by C&J) cap toes that are quite nice.
I wear a 7E shoe, so I'm familiar with your frustration. Member "Rick's Tailoring" was selling some OTC wool argyle socks in B&S a few weeks back for $15 shipped, I don't know if there are still some left. I have also found some nice socks on Sierra Trading Post (I've only bought mid-calf there, but I imagine they have OTC, too). Also, check out Viccel. I believe he offers a discount to SF members.

Wear it with any collar, but man, I just saw a club collar BBBF at Brooks Brothers today.. I am so tempted to run back and get it. Aha! Thanks...
Different shoes of the same nominal size have different lengths, depending on how much it is designed to extend beyond the end of your toes. That being said, sounds more like 8.5 D or E.
I think I'd skip the fedora.
