and in another note, if you guys have something more structured/English and in same price range as you do for sartoria carrara then can probably count me in...
Steed MTM might be what you're looking for.

Suit is gray so you could pull off a blue shirt, solid or patterned.
well in that case light blue and light pink work in same way as white, though still not sure about shoe.

and to be clear not interested in buying this, just curious about shoes, maybe polo suede? Feels too menswear

They can advertise the convenience features of this jacket: the only DB suit that lets you urinate without even unbuttoning the jacket!
Purple Label is not that short. This is just advertising and promo. I have no idea why they would present tailored clothing this way...
I have a couple of their current suits and sc's and they are standard length.

Going back to RL, some interesting pieces this year.

I'd be all over this if it didn't look so ridiculously short (although it could be the model's height):




Like the double pleats on the trousers. Also, looks like they're 'in-sourcing' back to Italy for their Polo suits. According to the description, they're also half canvassed.

Lastly, I can't tell if they're going for Cifonelli for their new 'Ralph' cut, or 30's Hollywood:






Gotta ditch the belt loops

I think a mid to dark oakish brown calf would work and look good. Something like this:

nothing wrong with it

but at least per these photos it goes to the nice but a bit generic category (style choice wise, I assume he took the house style)
Slightly generic - yes. Not as distinctly English as Poole, Huntsman or C&M, etc. I believe Sexton does a slightly less expensive MtM/Bespoke program where the garment is cut in London but made in Asia - I think.

Never knew Edward Sexton has a cheaper tier, as per usual no pricing info...

I recall the price for a two-piece suit under the offshore program being around $2000+/- last time I met with them about two years ago.
