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.
A solid white french cuff shirt is something that every man needs.

This is for those who like pleats. If you think pleats are the devil's work, this is not for you. Select as many as you like.

I'd recommend a cummerbund. If you must wear a vest, the only lapel there is a shawl lapel.
I'm with the others that you shouldn't match with the shirt and tie. I second the recommendation for a white shirt and black tie. The only place to coordinate is with a pocket square.
The suit on the right fits better through the chest, and it has a nice lapel role. But the suit on the right is a better length and the shoulders look better on you. I think the flap pockets are more flattering. Each of them are good in their own ways.
Classic fit with a long rise, side straps, and single forward pleats would do it for me.
