For a wedding?  ^^^
 Assuming u can predict what is going to be permanent, surely?  Using a suit analogy,   commission a fully canvassed suit in a durable cloth and u have to  accept  that the gorge height or lapel width might  look dated in a few years time-  long before the suit itself fall apart.  There is no 'essential' suit & no 'essential' house.  The one that endures could be today's compromised monstrosity.
   cheers David.  You know it's funny- a few days ago in the Whnay threak we discussed the apparently common manufacture of silk knits sold under different labels. I followed your link (thanks!) and one of the Lands End silk knit user reviews mentions the problem of the 'Made in Italy' label interfering with hte knot.  I have the same issue with my T M Lewin silk knits. 
Oh that's a chunky looking silk knit.  Who by?
 Oh I have that exact shoe.  Looks better on u
 Giving u the fingers again Victor.  Awsm.  Those CJs look like Dovers.  Which ones?
I'm no tailor. (caveat)The divot at the top of the sleeve may work itself out with wear as the jacket shapes itself to your body.  the looseness at the triceps is more of an issue IMO, possibly because you're right handed? (left arm is less developed, less voluminous). Not easy to fix. Tiny bit more waist supression may help, but IMO the fit as a whole is not bad.  Sleeve pitch is good. Collar is good too.
 someone pm FNB.  Stuff looks suit-worthy  ditto.  The cool dividend isn't worth the sacrifice in drape in <10 oz, even with legendary heavy-hangers like Lesser, in my  limited experience
 This is awsm. 
Shell loafers r classic, but  even shoe-treed shell develops distinctive beef rolls, so a very casual look.  With any loafer, particularly suede, buy them tight.  Once they stretch they fall off your feet. I suggest u take a look at the 2nd hand shell.  If they fit & they haven't developed the rolls, go for them.
