What is a peak collar? It looks like you have a wide spread collar. You want to re-cut it to a cutaway? Where will you put the collar stays? You'd be much better off just buying some shirts with cutaway collars.

When they don't fit well, flared forward pleats look worse than flared reverse pleats. When they a properly fitted, I find that forward pleats are more flattering and more effective. But that's just my experience.

I have some from Turnbull & Asser and Hackett. They can be found from other English shops.

Pleats turned out are reverse pleats. Pleats turned in are forward pleats.
Just in case anyone is confused, forward pleats open toward the fly and reverse pleats open away. Reverse pleats are the standard type of pleat in America and Italy, and have become more common in Britain as well.
