I would keep searching, but it's obviously your choice ... Did the coat - would love to see a full body shot.
The full-length is tough to pull off. I have about one minute to squeeze in a photo before rushing the kids to school in the morning. If it helps your imagining, I wore green (more earthy than kelly or forest) flannel trousers and orangey-brown split-toe bluchers.
upr_crust, you are definitely becoming one of my favorite posters! I really appreciate the more traditional fit and interesting color combinations that posters like yourself and olddog are turning out. Some of the new changes you've made are great but I have to encourage you not to stray too far from your established style. I'm digging it! (p.s., I actually prefer the shots with the flash)
Far too early a start for me today. That, plus almost no natural light, means it took longer than usual to take the photos, and they still needed a lot of artificial lightening. Still, FWIW...
Someone else noted the stray jacket away from its 2 other brothers (I like it like this too) but heres a crazy question - are your socks by Richard James? If they are I think I have reached my capacity of sartorial knowledge, and the fact that I know the brand of another mans socks in the UK is a bit scary... so please tell me I am wrong.

I just downloaded a self timer app for the iPhone.. few test shots and its looking good so far!
PS - Checked out your blog today. Really cool setup and great idea.

ETA: I just looked at all the stuff that you are selling....DAMN! Most guys don't even have that many things in their full wardrobe! Don't you know that there are starving children in China that never get to wears suits and ties?!?!?!? ;o)
OTR - Ashamed to say it was something like $125 at retail at a Saks Off 5th end of season sale. Its their house brand, but a Loro Piana S120s. Gorgeous cloth.

1. Spread, nothing out of the ordinary. Shirt is Kiton, probably one of my favorites.
2. FIH, but this tie is mega thick woven silk.. almost feels like cashmere.
3. Its called the kid grabs my PS out after meticulously fluffing it, so I get frustrated and randomly stuff it back in
