That is not appropriate. The waistcoat should have 5 or 6 buttons, with 6 being the most traditional. Both would have about the same button stance.
Did they redo your shirt?
I don't have experience with MyTailor or Nialma, but Modern Tailor has really stiff fusing in the collar and cuffs, and that's not even with selecting the stiff option.
Is this shirt for your girlfriend? Then if you like her forearms get a 3/4 sleeve.
You're right that flannel or tweed would be not formal enough. But that doesn't mean you need to wear tropical weight either. A mid-weight worsted cloth would be your best bet. A plain weave, mini-herringbone or twill (even twill, not gabardine) would be best.
Bring one with you. Two of my friends who I visit regularly who request I remove my shoes now have a shoe horn by their shoe rack because I asked that they provide it for me. That's a must. I often have a shoe horn in my bad/briefcase just in case. I would assume that everyone here brings a shoehorn with them to the airport. I bring plastic so it's easier to go through the metal detector.
Chalk stripes are my favourite type of stripes, but unfortunately they are often seen as over the top in America. It can be hard to get away with anything other than a faint pinstripe in most business situations.
I think that's a great choice. If it's double-breasted I think it looks much better with lapels. But a 3-piece suit rather than an odd waistcoat would be a more versatile choice.
For an odd waistcoat with a charcoal suit I think that a buff waistcoat would look much better than heather grey since there would be more contrast. Heather grey also sounds dark for a charcoal suit. If it was a light grey it would work much better. Go with standard-width lapels. Narrow peak lapels will look silly.
Are there any television shows where people take off their shoes when entering the home, besides Mister Rogers' Neighborhood? In Asian television and movies, do people always take off their shoes and put them back on when coming and going? It seems so important, yet it sounds like it would really make a movie lag, having to watch people tie their shoes.
