That color is gorgeous and much more versatile than you would imagine. Probably more versatile than most of the grey jackets you see here. It is cashmere. It's too long but that is neither here nor there.

BTW, you can barely make out in the fuzzy photograph of the Masai women in the on the wall that they were incredibily hot. Smoking hot. While this is a trivial and extraneous fact for most, I know that it is probably the highlight of this entire post for you.
Are those flannel pants you are wearing sockless? Could enough for flannel but hot enough to go sockless?
I've had more Masai women than they can shake a stick at.

I like the first outfit, I am a fan of nicely patterned coats. I would not wear the oxford with it or if I did I would make sure it was impeccably starched. I feel the jacket out shines the shirt but, to yuour credit, you are not wearing a regular collar dress shirt, if you are not wearing a tie, buttondown collar is the way to go. The right shoulder seems to extend too much and the sleeve pitch on that arm is not right, but you seemed to nail the length and the waist quite well.
Second pic I find many things wrong. The shirt/suspenders combo is too much and I do not agree with wearing braces in an informal outfit. I also find the jacket too long. I would take off the suspenders, shorten the jacket and add a pocketsquare in wool or silk twill. Also, you have those pants as high as they would go, and they still stack at the bottom, I would shorten them some. I like the color palette, but feel the shirt and pants are crying out for a tweed or shetland jacket.

It's quite conceited, that is the point. But it will also be "real", unlike some other feel good threads.
