You can practically wear any dress shirt without a tie. Extreme cutaways are a bit harder to get away with casually, however, as are contrast collar shirts - but it can be done.
Off the top of my head:Solid navy, solid navy w/ white polka dot, striped university / club tie, black grenadine, one colourful tie w/ small pattern.Build from there.
Fishing bags are usually cheaper and double up as good camera bags.
I have owned a few double breasted odd jackets and they need to be very casual in order to pull them off completely. The problem, for me, arises in the small amount of shirt space shown above the lapels. It's very hard to make it look right, and the same goes with a double breasted overcoat. I think that if you can't put a tie there it looks good hiding the shirt with a jumper or a scarf. What looks even better is a tall necked jumper, yet obviously that can begin to look...
Think this is the last time I'll bother to pay to become a "premium" seller on B&S. If the owners are bothered about my money, and no doubt countless of other sellers who no longer bother with B&S "premium" subscriptions, then something really needs to be done to improve that section of the site.

I'd say the Ralph Lauren sale on Bond St. Whilst there are many other options in London, such as E&R, their suits are a little too conservative and most certainly quite "boxy" as you say for a young man in my opinion. Polo offers consistently good quality (made by Corneliani), half to full canvassing, traditional style and fabrics in a more modern fit than the standard 3 or 2 button English suits offered en masse by the usual London shops. They also have a few different...
As others have said, unless you are a particularly bizarre body shape MTM is a waste of money. A good alterations tailor is your friend - save the money and get better quality RTW.
Very nice, as usual.
