Have you considered flannel, they feel warmer compared to worsted wool? From my own experience, there is not much difference between 14oz and 16oz cloth; however, i have tried 18oz - it would feel warmer, but how much warmer I do not know. Are you just looking at rtw options?
I do like the grey suit/grey tie look, and the same applies to blue/navy. The pattern of the suit and tie are important than the colour. I would wear a plain blue or navy suit with a blue/navy patterned tie, matched with a plain shirt. If the shirt is patterned, e.g. striped, then it is important it does not clash with the tie. You could wear a navy patterned suit with a navy patterned tie, but in this scenario a plain shirt is best. If you want to go further and wear a...
When I had a look at their shop last year, a lot of garments were made in Italy; the quality was good but more expensive then similar quality elsewhere. Since then, they have added more items based on what I have seen online. If you are looking for cashmere sweaters, have a look at Turnbull & Asser £195 or two for £300 (sleeveless £145 each or two for £200).
When I was looking for alterations tailor open on weekends found H. M. TTailoring. They altered four jackets for me: 2 from sleeves 1 from shoulders On a casual jacket shorten sleeve end & re-attach cuff. They are also available on sundays but appointment only. However; I have not used them since 2008. Recently I did give Cad & Dandy some alteration work when getting trousers made. Jacket altered from shoulders and coat from sleeve end.
Look at suit separates rather than paired jacket and trousers suit combo - this is allows you to get the best available jacket and trousers, and also helps reduce alteration costs
Single cuffs - prefer round but do have some square cuffs. Dislike mitre cuff Double cuffs - square only

They look dark enough to seem black
Have you considered light grey and mid-grey in tropical wool. I think your normal work attire is fine. I was staying in the biz district in dubai last year & they have a bit more relaxed attitude to work attire due to the weather.. If I was there I would wear button down shirts with chinos or more likely tropical wool in light shades like light grey and tan. I would not wear a jacket on a daily basis.
I have over a dozen G&H shirts. They are good shirts but not at £125 each. They used to have shirts on sale for '3 for 2' when their shirts were £75-95 depending on cloth or 3 for £150. They used to have more variety in terms of style: sinle button cuff, two button cuff, sone casual shirts had buttonsin different positions, differrent collars, most shirts had subgle neck button but some had two. The current sale 2 for £150 is nit that great. Go ti Bicester Village £50...
