Luxire offer Dugdale Town Classics, though not all of the book is on their website. There are some good workhorse navy staples in there including twill, hopsack and Birdseye so have a look on the Dugdale website then drop Luxire a mail.
I am not a tailor, so take this with a pinch of salt: - May be camera angle but with those lapels I would raise the buttoning point to balance the jacket; currently it seems top heavy - You are correct your shoulders slope; your call on whether you want a more structured shoulder to compensate for this - The shoulders are slightly wide, by perhaps half an inch. If you retain the natural shoulder, perhaps tidy this up - There is too much ease in the upper chest, front...
This seller just listed a bunch of used Materna shoes on eBay Austria for €90: http://www.ebay.de/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=susisseconds&hash=item58e63fead0%3Ag%3AidUAAOSwmLlYB571&item=381820070608&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR10.TRC0.A0.H0.Xmaterna.TRS0&_nkw=materna&_sacat=0
I got myself mixed up, thanks for pointing it out. Post now edited...!
I'm a 46 on the U. I sized down to a 45.5 on the F (tried on in Vass' store) and it was too roomy, and the 45 was better but then a little short. So for me, U works for my feet but F doesn't even though much of the shoe's fit is the same.
@ericgereghty - Slewfoot tobacco? I'm in for at least a sportcoat's worth (2m)
I had a suit like that once, and got rid of it because it was way over the top to the point that whilst it garnered compliments I felt I could only wear it once a month or so because everyone remembered it.
@Luxire needs to get on a plane to London....
The way GBP USD is going at the moment, I need a 50% sympathy discount. Luxire is great as always but it's getting progressively more expensive due to factors outside their (and my) control.
In hindsight my response may have been a bit sniffy. I'm not a Vass purist (Budapester and nothing else) hence my comment on the U last, but I do think it's possible to push Vass' styling beyond where it should be via MTO. As @SoGent said, the contrasting strap is probably the deal breaker.
