I don't live in the UK, hence don't know whether they are available there.   They are a bit too expensive for me currently, but I do hope that soon enough I will be able to afford them as my daily shirt option. 
CT are good shirts, but do keep in mind that their collars are fused and somewhat stiff (per my taste). Their collar points are also quite short on the spread collars, which makes it difficult to match them to some suit jackets (collar gap).   My choice for shirts is TM Lewin http://www.tmlewin.co.uk - usually good deals for buying 4 or more shirts. Their collars and cuffs are unfused, so they fit more naturally and stay in good shape after many washes (some of my TML...
Note on the tie discussion - I would advise against SuSu ties. They are not very good in terms of fit and quality, even for their moderate price point.   I would much rather recommend EG Capelli ties (http://www.patriziocappelli.it/catalog/). Prices there range from 80 to 90 EUR, a bit more expensive than SuSu, but, trust me, their ties are much better and even offer some customization (tie width/lenght). I would favorably compare their quality to Drake's.   On another...
I would say that both characters' collars are more "classic" than anything else. They are certainly not spread (Harvey wears those), more likely they are "spread".   As per choices provided - I think the best overall option would be the "Cut Away Medium".   And if I may - please refrain from ever considering the two-button collars and nasty "Suits" tie knots (half and full Windsors) and leave them to super villains. 
Busy day tomorrow - dinner with the chairman of the council (big company, about 50 executives will be there), and opera in the evening.   I've already decided on suit, shirt and shoes - navy suit, white shirt, black captoes.   I got several options with the tie, however - burgundy with navy dots, navy with red dots, sky blue with darker blue dots, and a purple on with darker-purple dots.   which one should I go with? I kinda like the look with the burgundy one, but...

Hey! sorry for the delay.   Here is the pic of how the pants fit (please excuse the crappy lighting)   The photo shows a bit of a pull across the hips, but it's due to the lighting - there is no pull whatsoever.   Hope it helps.
I;d go with York. I question the Havana fit itself when it comes to suits - it's a very casual suit, which in itself is useless, IMHO. If you want a suit that would be appropriate for most life accessions - job interview, CBD, weddings, etc., you better go with YORK. Havana is a great jacket/sportcoat option, but not as a suit. The shoulders in YORK are not THAT padded, anyway.  My advice - get YORK. Trust me, it'd be your go-to suit. The lowered button stance does wonders...
I have the Strand in black - it's a good shoe. Works nice in black. I, however, would recommend you first getting a classic cap toe oxford as your first black business shoe. The Naylor I would not buy, honestly - they are a derby (an open lacing shoe), so that would not work in black (since black is the most "formal" colour of the shoe, and the oxford (closed lacing) is the most formal type of shoe (except for the tux shoes - but that's a whole another topic)). Get Loake...
I'll try to take a pic tomorrow morning (approx 10 hours from now)
