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.

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.
I'd recommend a cummerbund. If you must wear a vest, the only lapel there is a shawl lapel.
