Body slimmed, the neck is way too wide, shoulders narrowed, sleeves slimmed and shortened. Even then, it probably won't look at that great since things would then be out of proportion. Trust us on this. Sometimes you just need cut your losses and walk away from something rather than sinking more money on a lost cause; save the money for something that you'll be happy with.
Have any of you purchased the navy peacoat? http://us.suitsupply.com/en_CA/coats/blue-peacoat/J414I.html?cgid=Coats If so, how have you found it to be warmth and thickness wise?
What I did for my groomsmen was I chose a few wedding, silver/grey/black and white ties from Sam Hober's collection, then had my groomsmen rank their favourites. The one that they ranked highest was the one that they got as a gift (I did the ranking just in case there was a tie and I needed to go down to their next ranked preference but it ended up not being necessary). Funny enough, it still ended up being a surprise for them because they had just assumed that they were...
I wouldn't say that they are must haves, certainly not the far right one that is checked. My wife works in the luxury hotel industry so, from what I've seen, I would say that any one of (from left to right, and ranked in that order of preference) the 2nd to 4th shoes would be perfectly acceptable.

Yeah, I didn't get the impression that you were upset about not getting compliments, just looking to swap stories/info.Anyhoo, my collection consists of (all AE):Merlot Park AvesWalnut JeffersonsBlack Garners (single monk strap)Saddle Brown ParliamentsBrown KenilworthsMy Jeffersons easily get the most complimented; but they all have except for the Kenilworths, interestingly (but not surprisingly, I guess) enough.
You can check out ehaberdasher as well to see if he has any navy sport coats left in your size. I don't own one but earlier reviews have been extremely positive.
