I usually think Foofed jackets end up with the shoulders too wide, and that's the case here. The lower buttoning point is the key change, and the shorter length looks better too. As for the un-Foofed versions, I voted for B based on the overall silhouette. I like C's shoulders better.

The fabric looks nice. The shoulders look a bit too wide to me. Take the armholes up quite a bit. You want to aim for sleeves such that the cuffs end at your thumb's first joint at the butt of your hand—they should be made a bit longer to account for shrinkage on washing and wrinkling at the elbow.

If you're looking for a pair of boots, get the Clarks. They're not as slim as they look in the advertising photos—they have thick, heavy crêpe soles, and a broad, plodding cut. They also run between a half and full size bigger than most shoes, so size down. If you want something you can wear instead of blüchers, get the chukkas from Loake or Grenson or Tricker's. I suggest the Clarks if you want something to wear with jeans when you'd otherwise wear sneakers or...

Thanks, Cravate, I'll break out the iron and give it another try. In the photo it looks like it's folded over at the top, back to front, to create the "tunnel" near the lapel. My puff folds always look more like, well, a wadded handkerchief than a nice billowy triangle.
