I'm not a fan of online custom if you don't have experience with shirts.
I'll point out one feature. The whole lapel collar is very elegant and has a nice roll. To your eyes, does it look about the same as what you see regularly? There's a tailor here, Musella, who is in Milan and I find his suits to be the most similar. Probably relates to what PatrickBOOTH said about northern italy. 
I am often struck that Agnelli's clothes usually looks different than all the Italian-made suits that many of our forum members have. I wonder, is there even a real difference or is it just an effect of the camera, person, and lifestyle pics? Is it because most forum-users wear Neapolitan style clothes and Agnelli doesn't? Is wool fabric different now than then? It's a mystery to me.
Another suggestion is to look at more SWD type brands if you're looking for pants that aren't so formal. Some examples are Lemaire, helmut Lang, zam b, etc. I do like those in comparison to most dress pants here in CM.
Not sure about a joke using the foobinacci sequence but there are fibonacci numbers too. So 11 should be a foobinacci number, the number of suits required from a tailor before you can know if he's good or not.
When I read Foo's initial post, I thought I had similar sentiments but from his later posts, maybe not. For me, it is that the forums are filled with affiliate vendor threads with hundreds of posts but nearly all of which essentially consists of a circlejerk saying "Yaay!!" in response to a vendor saying "Here is a great new product I am selling you!" For me, I have no problem with people like David, which I guess is where I differ with Foo.
Beige chinos are ugly. Why not jeans? Black shoes are fine. If jeans, then no tie. Everything else you said in your first post is fine.
I like some of Dolce and Gabbana's stuff but don't expect to hear anything positive about them on this forum. In other words, you're asking the wrong crowd.
How? At any regular shoe-cobbler?
Yep, that's a great picture of Agnelli. I have that saved on my computer. Even though I wear street wear because suits don't fit my workplace, I try to use Italian CBD as inspiration.
