Low cut is the important bit. U shape is more classic, but a v would be fine if you like it more. Shawl lapel or no lapels is personal preference.
At a wedding with a charcoal suit? Black shoes every time. And stick to a white shirt.
I like 'em.
I've used these guys for some shell buttons for jackets a few times. Not the fastest, but the price and quality are good.
Black and cream do not go together well at all. Really, the entire outfit looks like a mess. Switch to gray chinos or slacks (corduroy in this weather is weird anyway), or keep the pants but switch to brown shoes and belt. And a shirt that isn't black.
Why would gold buttons make somebody want to wear the jacket less? I really don't understand what people have against traditional blazers...I have a 3 roll 2 navy blazer in a fabric like that, with gold buttons. It's one of my favorite jackets. I say go for it, though I would also cut off that patch.
What? That's comically wrong. Plenty of Burberry stuff has a "Burberrys" logo. Just means it's older, though the change where they dropped the s is still pretty recent. The vast, vast majority of vintage Burberry stuff out there is going to be labeled "Burberrys".And yes, his friend is an idiot.

Go to a good store and ask to try on a few twill shirts. If you give a price range, people here can make some pretty good suggestions.
Plymouth makes a nice martini, as does Hendricks.IMO, in terms of gin, it's good to keep a variety around. Some are great all rounders, some are specialists with very distinct and unique flavors. Hendricks falls into the latter camp, but that doesn't make it lesser than something like a Bombay that's pretty firmly in the former camp. It just makes it different. If you're only going to have one gin around, I probably wouldn't go for a Hendricks type deal, I'd go for a...
Such as pink linen. I had a meeting (granted, not a high stakes anything, just kind of a get to know you) with one of the better known lawyers in the city I was in at the time. He showed up in madras shorts, a pink linen shirt, and flip flops. Having your name on the building helps. His firm wasn't particularly conservative, but still.
