Yes, you're probably right about both. It's a list of vanilla basics at different price levels. For a college kid who wants to start dressing better, it's good to be willing to pay more for some nice things, and also know where you can get something inexpensive and nice.
This is a good start on a well balanced wardrobe: You can save the suits for last (or until you're graduating and looking for a job), but most of what's in there is classic, goes well with each other, and will blend into your current wardrobe along the way..

Just because it's a designer suit doesn't mean it suddenly meets all needs in all places.

I just don't think it's practical to do it yourself. It's not so expensive to have a professional put flush metal toe taps on your shoes. I have them on a couple of my pairs, and they're always a bit slippery for a few weeks (can't really be helped) until the metal gets suitably scratched up. They work well. A cobbler sold me on the leather version once, but they came off quite easily. I'm happier enduring the slight slippiness of metal in the beginning, for the...
We are ever working towards the apotheosis of total stylelessness masquerading with some kind of dignity towards this forum.
Yet another "If you have to ask, you already know the answer" threads.
This question is just a vague hypoethetical, and its wrapped up in your sorta throwing shade on other people's preferences. I would buy whichever I wanted or needed more, at the time I had money for it, and happened to want something from Hermes.
