Not sure if this is strictly CBD, but the navy blazer might help.

You need a bigger shirt colloar, gnatty.

Agreed. The thinking was that the lapels were rather narrow, and the tie, fairly slender also, but I think you are right, looks crowded up there.

William Field. Almost 20 years old. I love the cloth but not the cut; not blaming him, just that my tastes changed.

Know exactly how you feel. I posted a pic of a rope shouldered, ticket-pocketed number last week that fits that same bill. Not nearly as old as your coat though. Yours looks remarkably current given its age--like classic, moderately proportioned clothing should.

Also, I'd like to see a different pant.

As to the businesswear point, please read the numerous comments in which I and others have repeated over and over (and over) that this thread is not exclusively about businesswear. Please also look at a calendar.

WADR Manton, the scale of your shirt collar together with the suit's lapels/collars and tie is a little off - with the shirt's collar being slightly large.

Perhaps a case of bespoke and RTW mishmash.

No, both bespoke. Much prefer large collars. I think at least half of the collars I see on SF are too small.

In the context of his height, I think Manton's collars look just right, even if large (specifically point length) by most standards.
