Started watching this show called "Halt and Catch Fire", where one of the main characters seems to only wear tab collar shirts (set in the early 80s...), but I also remember Daniel Craig sporting tab collar shirts. Too dated looking, or just fine? What about collar pins?   [[SPOILER]]
Solid and shiny black satin tie = no  Most else textures, weaves and patterns = sure    I've seen some pretty good navy suit/white shirt/black grenadine or knit tie combos.    Also depends on the navy/black contrast. Is it "True" navy that is almost black, or a brighter shade? A light blue shirt could also make that combo more interesting.    edit: A couple of pics.   
Napoli shoulders and chest look better, but the London has a nicer button-stance and length.   Either way, I'd try a Long model. Sleeves are too short(seems like you need 1.25"-1.5" longer sleeves), and jackets are also on the shorter side.    I think a 40L Napoli would look nice. The buttoning-stance will probably be a bit lower, sleeves and length will be much better. 
I see RLPL are selling RTW suits/SC again. Thought they phased that out a couple of years ago, for MTM only.  But...almost 5k$ for a Sportcoat? 
Could be that it's been dry-cleaned and pressed to death. 
Suits, Sport Coats, Trousers, etc.    What are the cuts like for their suits and coats?  I know that they're made by St Andrews(or at least were), so quality wise they should be good.    I know they have a shop in London where they sell all above, but then again, I won't be traveling to London anytime soon. Kinda hard to find much info on their RTW stuff, as the data is drowned by other stuff made with LP cloth. 
For a work, I'd probably just buy three 500 buck suits, rather than one expensive.    Maybe Ralph Lauren, Hickey Freeman, BB, Suitsupply, Corneliani or something like that. There's a couple of Ebay sellers that sell brand new suits from above makers, usually priced around 400-600$ in conservative and staple colors. 
Only if you have a Ferrari jacket to go with 'em. 
The majority of executives I've seen the past years have usually worn very anonymous ties(solids/geometrics/stripes), or typical hermes/ferragamo with cartoon-like prints. All depending on which industry they're working in...    Almost always red or blue, and sometimes colors close to those.(maroon,burgundy,purple,etc.)
Wow, those shoes. Just wow.
