I'd skip RTW and MTM and go straight to bespoke. I don't need suits, but I'd buy: Two odd jackets (patch pocketed navy blazer then something in a tweed). Five or six pairs of chinos. One pair of grey flannel trousers. Six MTM shirts (three of white and three of blue). Two or three pairs of RTW C&Js, all derby styles. Two or three regimental ties. I don't think I'd need any more than that.
Ugh, that midget Downing as Holmes. It's going to be terrible. On the topic of Holmes, is anyone in the Sherlock Holmes Society of London? I thought about joining, but I only really want the tie.
I have quite a bizarre one. If say for example I'm wearing a hooded jumper and using public transport, if I see someone looking at me I always think, "ahhh! have I left a sock in my hoody from when I did the washing?". Then I'll sit still, waiting for them to look away before I can check.

Barrel cuffs are fine to wear with a suit. I wouldn't get french cuffs in your situation if you're wanting to wear it with sweaters, odd jackets etc.
That's quite an impressive patch pocket.

Travolta's got collar gape.
Manton for general style and Foof for his uniform philosophy.
