One thing I've had success with there are cufflinks. They're not the best, but they have at least 10 different pairs for under $30.
Although strangely I couldn't find a single French cuff shirt in the store...
Black shirts are fine to wear with jeans, but I'd never, ever wear one with a tie or suit. I'm a college student and every single person I've ever seen wearing a black shirt with a tie and/or a suit has been a meathead who has no idea how to dress himself and pairs a rumpled black shirt with a shiny solid, frequently black tie (as DocHoliday suggested earlier) and black chinos.

As I understand it, removing pleats requires a recut, which he is having done anyway. So I don't know if it would be that much more.
