 As Gerry and Pink Socks said, if you're not difficult to fit, then there's really no reason to not get ready-to-wear, off the rack clothes if they fit and if you like them. As an example, I've commissioned plenty of shirts in various fabrics and patterns but I'm also happy to pick up off-the-rack clothes from a couple of different brands if I see them in a fabric that I like as they fit me really well and I really like the collars and cuffs, as well as the general...
  How about a small stepladder? Or would that be too obvious?
 Could just be me, but the Alpha ones look a bit too short.
 [fxh] Your nearest army disposals store. [/fxh] Alternatively, you could have a look somewhere like Charles Tyrwhitt or TM Lewin. Edited to add: TM Lewin have some in stock: http://www.tmlewin.com.au/Heathbrooke-Navy-Pea-Coat/45079,en_AU,pd.html http://www.tmlewin.com.au/Heathbrooke-Light-Grey-Pea-Coat/48804,en_AU,pd.html
    Look, I could be wrong, but as RogerP points out, he's not standing straight upright and stock still. When people move or change positions, their clothes and accoutrements move with them. We can't expect things "in real life" to look the same as they do on a mannequin. Therefore, as I said, I could be wrong, but given that Roger is bending forward, I don't think that the small gap between the shoes and his ankles is too large. 
For anyone who's interested (@Coxsackie ?), I just noticed that MyHabit is having a Tom Ford sale:    http://www.myhabit.com/ref=pe_391690_122674340_doi?src=email&sale=A2O7ZBHGB1IN7I#page=b&dept=men&sale=A2O7ZBHGB1IN7I   MyHabit is owned by Amazon, so you can use your Amazon ID to log on to the MH website.    Shirts $225, suits $1770.   I didn't check to see what sizes might be available. 
 I went out with a model for a brief while in my early twenties. She was extremely attractive, came from a wealthy family, holiday house at Sunshine Beach and so on. She was also amazingly vacuous and vapid and virtually her only topics of conversation were the cars her friends drove, where her friends had holiday houses, where her friends were going on holiday over summer, and what she and her friends were wearing.  It was a boost to my ego (although also a bit alarming)...
 Nike Tennis Classic x Fragment up on END now. I just snagged a pair of the white x "dark concord" ones: http://www.endclothing.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/227091/s/nike-x-fragment-design-tennis-classic-sp/category/5/
 You could always scour eBay to see if you can find a Burberry or perhaps an Aquascutum in decent condition. It took me a little while, but I picked up a Burberry in fantastic condition, with a button-in camelhair liner, from eBay UK quite a few years back for a great price. You've just got to be patient and prepared to wait for one in good condition to come along in your size.  Of course, this won't work for you if you want one right now because it's bucketing down outside. 
 Yes, END should have them online sometime in the UK morning, I suppose. Apparently, they'll announce it via their Twitter account. However, I just discovered that Sneakersnstuff have them online right now in a variety of sizes, so it could be worth checking as they still seem to have a wide selection of sizes: http://www.sneakersnstuff.com/en/6/nike-sportswear#filter={27:[87594,7698]}
