The three things I would consider are the colours, type of cloth and pattern. I suppose you could add cut to that too but think about how much waistcoat will be on show. I like to be a bit avant garde and go for contrast but do with whatever you feel comfotable with. Just try stuff out.
The rather Saintly sartorial look     The kids are alright - The High Number's non satorial look  
You sure it wasn't a camel Cromby or a rain coat? The only frock coats I've seen are on Goths and Teds.
I've been thinking about shoes over the last few days and most of the shoes I have seem to be Loakes. Stylish mid range shoes which look and feel good and although you should look after them, it's not the end of the world if they get scuffed. They start about £100 or about $150. You can buy more expensive shoes and you can certainly but cheaper brands but Loakes offer value for money every time IMO.
 Maybe get the jacket waisted by taking it in at the side seams. Not sure I'd alter the shoulder width though because that's more tricky to do but mybe waisting the jacket can change the appearance of the shoulders. Talk to the tailor and see what he says.
I appreciate the OP's post and a lot of people ask similar questions. I'm afraid if you ask ten people you'll get ten different answers. So I'm going to say whatever you want it's your choice, put it down to trial and error. What I would say is have a look at a few websites about matching clothes i.e. stile (cut) and colour. Make sure your colours work well together and don't mix styles/eras of clothing.
Looking through the pics I would say most of the clobber is male influenced by not male clothes. You can generally tell by the cut of the clothes because womens' clothes are much more shapely whereas mens' clothes tend to be a bit more squarish. I have female friends that often wear mens' clothes (suits) and they look slightly different than those in the photos.
I had a TM lewin John Francomb pin through collar shirt that I loved. Infortunately my stomach didn't like it and I ripped the button hole leaning forward to tie my shoelaces ... gutted!
It depend on the spread of the collar and the thickness (chunky) of the tie
Not sure to be honest, perhaps the trousers are just a bit roomy in the seat?  Maybe the turn-ups are a bit long and stiff and the only place the trouser fold naturally is below the seat?  It may even be the type of cloth used, some just fold or hold straight better than others. It's difficult to tell without handling them. Nice suit BTW. I should also point out that with all the suits I've had made I've never been 100% satisfied although I have come close. I think it's...
