So my question is, what are the opinions on the best suit I can buy in that price range in New York City. 

Do you want Ready-to-Wear or Made-to-Measure? For RTW, I like Paul Stuart or Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece.

Well, I've had pretty good luck with RTW. Most of the suits I've tried on fit me well right off the rack. So RTW is fine with me. I'd like to get something that's fully canvassed.

Yes, no. NO NO NO.

That's a lot like khaki-colored chinos with black shoes. I understand this is a well regarded combination in terms of military uniforms, but most people (not all, of course) find it somewhat unappealing outside that context.

In general, beige pants and brown shoes works great. Beige pants and shoes in one of the "wine" shades - burgundy, merlot, etc. - works fine. But beige pants and black shoes will strike many as a mistake.

Could it be done successfully? Yeah, probably. I've certainly seen worse combinations made to work, on a handful of occasions. But it's not a challenge I'd choose to tackle, if brown shoes were available. And brown shoes are common enough that they're usually available.

Honesty compels me to admit that I have worn beige pants with black horse bit loafers, a few times. The world didn't end. But just because I've done something, doesn't necessarily mean that I recommend it.

Does anyone know how I would look into how old a specific Belstaff leather jacket is?

I'd avoid those black shoes with such light grey pants.

Not the Fifth Avenue, that one only has brogueing at the toe cap.

This is a strange beast... It's like a Strand without the medallion on the toe. Even looks like it's on the same 5 last.

Never wear those black shoes with those pants, please!

As for positive choices - I really like the light blue

A facial expression of deep shame.

 

Really, don't be silly.

An old-timely baseball uniform.

This is definitely one of those "if you have to ask..." situations.

I don't know that I'd call it strange; it looks like a standard quarter-brogue. I find it strange that neither AE or Alden offers one.
