    I would say yes to both. Less formal.

    Aye, something I am still working on. I have other shoes but i felt like the color brown was too similar to the knit. Will try it out. Also, have a pair of flannels yet to be tailored, which should provide more texture and lessen the formality.

    Flannel would be sweet. I wouldn't worry about matching your shoes and knit too closely. Just use a better color for socks and I think it would be okay.

    Suits for my first internship just got back from the tailor. Thinking the pants may be an inch or so long - thoughts?

    Think I agree on the length, but it's not terrible. Could be the angle but the jacket looks a little short as well. The bigger issues is the shoulder divots which unfortunately there is not much you can do about.

    Good news is the colors are great and no one except people on this forum will ever notice any of these imperfections.
