I know it's A&S, as well as Steed's style, but idk if that's just coincidence or if there's some aesthetic or practical necessity behind associating the lapel shape and the construction.

I'm happy with both - I enjoy the differences, and try not to get too proscriptive in these matters.

Sorry, no clue if there is some practical notion equating lapel shape with construction. Maybe Despos or Jeffrey could comment?

I assume you guys are talking about DBs only?

That's a nice little solarium you have. I think the tie is fine, a bit confetti, but fine (unless that's a jacquard). Shoes may be fine depending on what shade of navy it is (two are pictured).

 

However, you are taking robot pose to a new level.

Not sure if this is a compliment or an insult.

I'd say denim, charcoal, navy. I wouldn't go tan or khaki. Definitely a solid shirt. I have similar fabric.

Don't really like this cloth. A bit too grandpa - even for me!

I think if you wore it with charcoal pants it would look young and stylish. With khakis it could look grandpa-like.

Really... I quite like gunclubs in that shade. Thinking about getting one for my next coat.

I'm not a fan of those houndstooth gunclubs in general - but this one is particularly boring to me
