I'm a bit of a lurker on this thread and have followed your "evolution", as it were. Your looks have consistently improved and I don't want this to come across as overly critical.
It could be phone camera/angle/size of mirror in this pic, but I swear those pants look like you're wearing tights that are a size or two too big. You can clearly see the curvature of your thigh muscle to your knee and the widening of your calf muscle from your knee. I think the MC Casual Groupthink has gone too far in the slim fit direction if this look is acceptable. I have no idea what size shoe you wear, but they look absolutely enormous on the end of the that tiny leg opening (the fact that it's not the most attractive shoe, as many, many, many have mentioned, aside). And, to be honest, most of the pants I've seen you wear seem too skinny at the leg opening for your large-ish feet/shoes.
I really like the style of the sweater, but I feel it may be a skosh too small (probably not a even full size). You can clearly see a line of demarcation along the top of your pants; it's also a bit tight around your pecs. Maybe a tight undershirt could alleviate the pecs issue.
But, otherwise, kudos to you for making a conscious effort to improve your style and having the balls, for lack of a better term (especially considering your tight trousers), to chronicle your journey online in a forum of nitpicking men's clothing dorks (finger pointed straight back at myself).

And listen or gdl re the sweaters. Jackets can be wind proof, knits rarely are.
Agreed that tassel loafers aren't the answer. Second on the longwing. Amen to the jackets for windproof, sweaters for a layer of warmth point.
