Hey, man! You're making good progress. Some quick comments.
From top to bottom.
Look #1: Suit looks a little big, but that might be because it's unbuttoned. Trousers are a tad too long - easy fix for a tailor, or a handy gentleman. I like it that you've pulled the tie all the way up, don't be afraid to do that more often.
Look #3: This one you've nailed in my opinion. I like it! Arms on the mac look a little long, but nothing to worry about too much. Trouser fit looks perfect. Well done!
Look #5/#6: Works really well with the blazer, a little boring without it. Really nice blazer, btw!
Look #7: Looks good. Good fit on the shirt there.
Look #8: Love the shoe + trouser combination. Not sure about the shirt here though. Try the shirt from #7 with that instead. If you change to black shoes instead, I think it'll work better with the shirt.
Well done, mate! What an improvement!

Generally agree with Marc, good stuff.
Couple of general comments though:
- The dark colours on the top half in the later pictures seem to flatter you more than the white shirt.
- Your smart shoes could probably do with updating. Are they loafers? If you want to stick with loafers, maybe try some pennies. Otherwise, consider a derby or brogue.
Other than that, it's a good improvement. Keep going!

Do you mean the black shoes in the first pictures? They're a pair of really cheap slip-ons I got in primark a couple of years ago for a wedding. I've been mostly a trainers sort of guy so I'm really lacking in ideas for shoes. The brown shoes are the boots from the earlier pics (A few pics back) I'm not sure I like them at all really but thought the colour and style still kinda worked.

Yes, I did mean the black shoes. I think you should get a small range of solid, versatile footwear, that will cover you for 90% of situations e.g.
Black derbies or oxfords
Brown derbies or brogues
Brown leather boots
Plain white trainers/plimsols, for those more casual days.
Once you have the basics sorted, you can start fretting about exactly what shade of blue you should get those suede loafers in!
