I recently got a suit from Indochino and it fits great and looks great (http://www.indochino.com/product/The-Es ... rcoal-Suit or so for reference) and already have another charcoal suit and a black suit with light white pinstripes (both off the rack with minor tailoring). I also recently got a pair of http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/pr ... 0000001_-1 in dark brown and have an old beat up pair of Johnston and Murphy shoes (not very nice, I probably won't wear them again). I'm wondering if I need additional suits and shoes or if I'm just worrying for nothing? (I know I need belts and shirts, but that's less of an issue for now)
At a bare minimum, you're totally fine. Skip the black/pinstripe suit entirely. Don't worry about wearing the same suit every day--nobody is going to care about that. I'd personally worry about having a good backup suit if something happened to the charcoal suit, so I'd personally grab a navy suit.
Also, while the shoes you bought are a nice shoe, they aren't the best possible interview shoe. They'd also look a bit awkward with a charcoal suit (but not enitrely). So, I would absolutely get a pair of black captoe oxfords (Google the Allen Edmonds Park Avenue for an example).
But, at a bare minimum, if you were strapped for cash and wanted to spend more on some shirts, you could get away with it.
tl;dr: I'd buy a navy suit and some black oxford captoes.
