The trouser rise isn't high at all. The trousers don't even reach the waist in the front, though the height is right in the back. It doesn't look "old man" at all to me.

I'd get all my trousers with side tabs if I could. I never wear a belt with a suit, usually going for braces. If I wearing a sports coat I'll wear braces there too. Without a jacket I wear a belt, but I'd prefer side tabs instead.

It would be great if these were offered in a single forward pleat. It would also be nice to see them in a long rise as well. The only long-rise trousers I see these days are the ones sold with Long-length suits.

I've got two such shirts :/ There is indeed a single yoke underneath. I just looked at my Turnbull & Asser shirt: the outer yoke is split with the stripes meeting at an angle; the inner yoke is also split, but with the stripes meeting straight across.

I got the shirt and laundered, so here are the pictures: The measurements didn't come out exactly how I input them, but the shirt still fits decently. I copied the measurements of a well fitting shirt. There was a bit of shrinkage after laundering, more than they said would occur. I'll make a a few of the measurements a little bigger next time. The armhole is a little smaller than I asked for, but it still fits and allows great ease of movement. I'm happy...
A body length that short only looks okay with short sleeves. A long sleeve shirt needs a longer body.
I'm all for the Steed. The suit's drape, waist suppression, and button stance look perfect to me. The suit looks better than the sports coats because the jacket works well with the cut of the trousers. None of the other trousers look as nice as the Steed trousers.
