Summer Analyst Attire

I'm currently putting together a wardrobe for the summer. I'm going to be interning at a BB on the West Coast this summer, and I want to make sure that I dress appropriately. I only own one suit right now, and it's pretty baggy and not fitted. I don't have the best fashion sense, so I would appreciate some advice. Thank you!

I was thinking, in total, I should have these items:

2 Suits (Navy and Grey)

2 Pants (Black and Blue)

7 Shirts

5 Ties

1-2 Belts (Black)

1 Pair of Shoes

5 pairs of plain socks

Here is what I have purchased so far:

Bonobos Pants #1

Bonobos Pants #2

Got these on sale for $60 last week.

Allen Edmonds Park Avenue

Picked these up today on sale for $195 at a Nordstrom near me.

I am looking into these 2 suits right now:

Suit #1

Suit #2

I was thinking Tie Bar for the ties and Amazon for the socks.

Thank you for your help!

I've been reading on WSO a bit on this. I think brown shoes don't work. Black is safest from what I can tell.

So each suit comes with a pair of pants, and I bought 2 pairs of pants from Bonobos. Are the pants that come with suits, and the ones I bought, different?
