I've got two such shirts :/ There is indeed a single yoke underneath. I just looked at my Turnbull & Asser shirt: the outer yoke is split with the stripes meeting at an angle; the inner yoke is also split, but with the stripes meeting straight across.

I got the shirt and laundered, so here are the pictures: The measurements didn't come out exactly how I input them, but the shirt still fits decently. I copied the measurements of a well fitting shirt. There was a bit of shrinkage after laundering, more than they said would occur. I'll make a a few of the measurements a little bigger next time. The armhole is a little smaller than I asked for, but it still fits and allows great ease of movement. I'm happy...
A body length that short only looks okay with short sleeves. A long sleeve shirt needs a longer body.
I'm all for the Steed. The suit's drape, waist suppression, and button stance look perfect to me. The suit looks better than the sports coats because the jacket works well with the cut of the trousers. None of the other trousers look as nice as the Steed trousers.
What is the season for camel hair? When should I take it out and when should I put it away?

A well-fitting armhole needs to be bespoke tailored. I have second-hand bespoke suits with high armholes made for someone else and they still don't give me that amount of movement. It's a difficult thing to get right. Most RTW won't have high armholes because they need to fit a wide variety of people. And a lot of people also aren't used to a snug armhole and will more likely buy something else.

To the contrary, buttoning at the waist means high-waisted men wear high-waisted jackets and low-waisted men wear low-waisted jackets. That's the whole point. The Agents in The Matrix wore the same suit of the same...
Wouldn't longer sleeve make his arms look shorter? Shorter sleeves might look odd on a hanger, but it matters that they fit the person.
