Avoid stripes for weddings, stripes are for the office. A solid grey in a herringbone weave has more interest than a plain weave and gives the appearance of subtle stripes. It's a classic for formal wear.
Flat fronts are the oldest style. Plain bottoms are more formal and cuffs came about in casual wear. Forward pleats (English style) are more traditional than reverse pleats (Italian style). Double pleats are more traditional than single pleats. More than 3 pleats are less traditional. Nowadays pleats and cuffs are seen as more traditional than flat fronts and plain bottoms.
I went into the White Plains store and asked them about certain style options. They were quite limited and could not offer me forward pleats, amongst other things.
Does anyone else think the shirt looks a bit short? Unless you wear your trousers up at your waist, I don't think the shirt would stay tucked in all day.

Vox has shown us his many pieces from DeBoise. DeBoise can make very shapely suits with fewer darts, seams, fishes, etc. than any other tailor I've seen. His dart-less jackets are much shapelier than traditional sacks. I've seen examples of his one-piece backs that...

I'm not disagreeing with you but I wonder if you could expand on what you said. I agree plain colours are more versatile. I have blue and black Crombies too plus other overcoats. What kind of clothes do you think this goes with? The reason I ask is I now have 2 of them. One in a...

I have a waistcoat from a 3 piece suit, it's pinstripe and silk backed, can I wear it with a different suit? Pinstriped waistcoats don't work well with other suits. It should be solid or checked.
These are casual trousers, so don't worry about keeping them perfectly pressed.
This isn't a good choice for business or dressier occasions. It's good for wearing over a rustic sports coat or tweed suit. The pattern is quite bold for a topcoat. Overcoats in plain or herringbone cloths are the most useful as they can go with so much more.

I prefer all suits equipped with side adjusters and buttons for braces. If I wear it with a waistcoat I wear braces. If without the waistcoat, I use the side adjusters. I never wear a belt with a suit.
