Who is the tailor?

EDIT: Though it's also 60 bucks more than the other two, I see.
I like them in the order you posted the pics: BR > J Crew > Nordstrom's. The lapels on the J Crew one look a bit skinny (for me, amybe not for you) and both the BR and J Crew jackets look like they have a better fit than the Nordstrom's one. Hard to tell without trying it on yourself, though. I'm guessing at least BR and J Crew have good return policies.
Shoemart. Great selection, easy return/exchange policy.

A decent overcoat. A leather suitcase to replace the messenger bag that got me through residency. One or two new suits.
Why would navy trousers be forbidden? Just don't wear them with a navy sports coat...
Panta and Howard Yount are slim without being tight, IMHO. They also both have excellent return/exchange policies (I've never had to make use of that.) Between the two you should be able to find most of the staples you're looking for.
