David Reeves for the win.

Buy a few things, and see how they work out. Sometimes you don't discover the details of fit and comfort until you wear a garment a few times. Also, you can buy a few things at full price and then wait for a sale to stock up. Re shoes: lace-ups are more versatile for work than loafers. A nail salon is obviously a fashion business and so not about conservative business dress, but you never know what you'll be doing next.
Definitely menswear-ish. The collar is great. I think the pants would be better flat front.
Good alterations go such a long way. We all know people who wear very expensive clothes that fit poorly and look terrible.
Be cautious. Shell is tough, but it does not like all shoe care products. Have you checked the shoe care thread here? There is a lot of excellent advice.
Helping people dress professionally at a low price is great, and it is possible to look decently put together in inexpensive clothes. More power to good salesmen.
It's possible for folks who hold terminal degrees (usually doctorates) in their fields and have some special expertise or research record. I've seen in it mostly commonly in engineering programs and business schools. In other fields, there are often folks from the private sector who teach as adjuncts--usually for the fun of it and definitely not for the income.
