Because there are different grades of wool (and kid mohair is just a kind of wool), the relative percentages of wool to kid mohair don't tell you anything about the quality. Both Ikea and high-end furniture designers sell "solid wood" furniture, but the former is definitely lower grade.

Does anyone know what to call the color/texture on this sportcoat? Is this an example of donegal?

It's a classic sport coat if that's what you're looking for.

Good options for a blue linen sportcoat under 500 bucks preferably with wider or natural shoulders?

Is it ok to wear a solid navy or navy-based patterned tie with a navy suit? Or is that too much navy?

A solid navy suit with a solid navy tie can be a bit more solid navy than is ideal. Just the same, if the shirt has some interest to it, the combination can work. (And even with a plain white shirt, it's far from the worst look out there.)

A solid navy suit with a navy-based patterned tie is seldom a problem.

Bear in mind, "Is it okay?" is a relatively low standard. Many combinations can look okay, while still being somewhat dull or unimaginative. In some situations, "dull" may not be a bad thing, and personally I'd rather err on the dull side, than on the overly extreme side. Still, most of the time, I try to set my sights at least a little higher than merely "okay."

A navy suit with a navy ground tie is a classic combination.

Interested in a nice leather jacket that is non-biker like.  Any comments on the quality of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280932513767&clk_rvr_id=370665741747&mfe=sidebar#ht_500wt_898?

How come Yoox never seems to have any men's suits in short sizes? Or am I just searching incorrectly? I've run searches for every iteration of my size (38S) I can think of -- 38S, 38 short, 48S, 48C, etc., but no dice. Is this just a matter of faulty searching, or is Yoox discriminating against handsome little devils like myself by their abject lack of high-quality duds?

How do you determine this based on creasing? Both of the dress shoes I have (AE 9Ds) have a little bit of crease below the laced area.

It's my understanding that both regulars, and longs, far outsell shorts. So probably many retailers choose not to tie up too much money and space on inventory which won't sell as fast as will other types of inventory.

Similarly, it's usually more difficult to find a size 15EEE pair of shoes, than a pair in 10D.

That style of jacket doesn't work very well with tailored clothing. If you're considering it as a streetwear option, you might consider asking about it in that forum.

Creasing in that area is normal and unavoidable. Creasing in the toe box and/or the heel is often an indicator of poor fit. It's often accompanied by some degree of discomfort since ill-fitting shoes are rarely comfortable.
