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

All the styles are here: http://www.mytailor.com/BrowseSlacks.aspx
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.

BTW, French cuffs are incongruous with the oxford fabric and stitched down placket.
I agree that French cuffs are out of place with a casual oxford cloth, but there's nothing wrong with french cuffs and a placket. It's the way it's done on Jermyn St.
