Can you specify button stance? For instance, the button placement on your jacket is a bit too high for me, so could they make it an inch lower? How do you think they would be with options that aren't on their site? For instance, I would prefer a hook tab waistband extension, side adjusters and forward pleats. Would asking for a suit from them to my specifications be asking for trouble?

I prefer the double hook extended tab without the button. When I unbutton my suit jacket I don't want any buttons to be visible on the trousers.
Grey glen-plaid trousers are great with navy blazers.

Most of the outlets have mostly made-for-outlet clothes. Occasionally I'll find a couple Polo suits, trousers or sports coats, and even less BL or PL. Woodbury Common has an outlet specifically for BL and PL.
I'm a big fan of one-button jackets, and I like them to have notch lapels as long as it isn't for formal wear. It looks a bit tight across the chest in front. The lack of vents calls attention to your behind. What that jacket needs is nice long side vents, but that won't happen. The jacket is much too tight across the seat, so you might see if there is fabric to be let out to make it less snug. And make sure you have the sleeves taken up a little.
Try Pakeman, Catto & Carter or David Edward. David Edward's Morning Wear range is the one to look at. Choose the horn button, not the cloth covered.
There's no way we can tell without a picture. Taking in the waist may or may not make the pockets pop out. It depends on how the seat is altered. If the pockets don't pop out with a larger waist, a good tailor will make sure they don't when the waist is taken in. The proper length of the rise depends on your overall height and the length of your torso. I'm 5'9" but I need somewhat of a long rise (12-13 inches). The waistband of your trousers should sit around your navel or...
You are size 38 in BB if you are 40 in RLBL. As long as the wedding is black tie, the double-breasted is a good choice as it is not as formal as a single breasted "tux." Just make sure you wear a turndown collar and not a wing collar.
