Looks like she's wearing SuitSupply's San Diego cut jacket ...

And that's not a compliment.

I've tried (and failed) to get my wife to get something from BnT. Oh well. Someone else's wife has. It looks as if they've shaped the lapels to accommodate her breasts, but I don't know.
Great outfit overall but I am really seeing nothing menswear about it. That definitely strikes me as a women's overcoat and not a woman wearing a men's overcoat.

What are good sources of shoes for formally dressed women, both in tailored suits/clothing, and tradition womenswear? Just have to go with fashion brands?

John Lobb and Foster and Son make bespoke women's shoes. Caroline Groves makes bespoke heels. I basically know nothing beyond that.

Carmina and Crockett & Jones make women's shoes and boots - check out their websites.

I assume there are others as well.

I don't have any personal experience with their women's footwear (well, my wife doesn't), but I'm quite fond of their men's stuff.

I've got a couple pairs of Carmina, as well as Allen Edmonds. Retailers for both were not at all fazed when I asked them to fit me, and helped with finding shoes that would work well with my suits. I wear 8.5 in women's, though, so I have quite a few good options.

This is turning into a very childish thread - so I thought I'd add my twopence
