I personally don't see anything special about the Burberry shirts that you posted. Re: the Armani shirt - can you help me understand why people would still want to wear a cotton-polyester blend when you can go for 100% cotton? Also, why so much focus on the brands? I think you can achieve the look that you want without caring too much about the brand, or the price point.

I don't think you should wear this with a tie. But if you insist, what about a solid coloured tie, say navy blue? i don't see any problems wearing it with a jacket and cufflinks though.
with those eyelets, it seems like a pain in the neck to put on and take off (imagine going through airport security in those). Unless there's a zipper that I miss....
