Are these PRL shirts fake?
I don't think the tie is ugly. I think you've potentially gone with the wrong color combination. Even though grey is a neutral and can go with most colors, I think a lighter blue shirt (solid) would look great with this tie as the tie is more along the lines of pink / burgundy. Check out my blog http://suitupdressup.wordpress.com for advice on how to mix and match ties with respect to both color and pattern.
Apologies for being woefully ignorant on this stuff, but hey, I need to learn somewhere.
The solid suit is listed as "Dark Navy" - that's still going to function as the go-to Navy? And on the shoes, for a "Dark Navy," would dark brown or burgundy make a better compliment?
Hey guys. I made a thread for this, but received no responses. So here I am.
Got my Black Lapel Navy Suit today, 3.5 weeks after ordering. This is a MTM site like Indochino, except Black Lapel's are half canvassed and the fabric may be of slightly higher quality. This is a traditional navy suit for financial office environment. I ordered the tailored cut (between slim and traditional). I have 30 days to get $75 worth of alterations which will be covered by Black Lapel. The company has been nothing but fantastic so far. I got my original measurements by measuring myself three separate times, with the help of a tailor and two friends. Please ignore tie, shirt, belt, and rumpling/creases. Tie is okay, shirt is too big in most measurements, and belt is bad. Suit appears rumpled/creased because it just came out of the box.
I have a great tailor to go to and while I think that largely the fit of this is nearly perfect, I suspect a few minor alterations could be made to make it perfect. Here are a few of my own critiques:
Please give more advice, and thanks in advance. Here are way too many pictures.

Is it unacceptable to wear indigo/blue suit for an interview? On what occasion(s) is it appropriate to wear indigo/blue suits? (I'm aware charcoal and navy is advisable but they are too dark or close to black for my liking.)

Other than that, my understanding is that as long as the shoulders and chest fits, the waist can be taken in, within reason, the same way you would do it with a regular jacket. But, do you plan to wear the overcoat over a suit? If yes, you should absolutely try it on with a suit jacket, before you decide on the fit and alterations.
