Hardy Worsted Alsport should do.
I think that's vintage deadstock, but Fox has some delightfully outrageous jacketings as well.
All decent suiting books will contain this pattern. For workhorse value for money, check out Dugdale royal classics or Lesser 11 oz.
Hainsworth should have all you need.
Apparently, Harrison's has now listed the reissued Barbera on their website, but no pictures this far.
Check out Dugdale's linen and cotton bunch.
It seems to me you've got the basics right. I'd recommend the waistcoat, particularly if you were to opt for the bow tie. On neckwear: you've got a very neutral base, so pick any tasteful tie you'd like. Capelli has some great options, particularly affordable in their online outlet.
The difference between bespoke and MTM is a slippery slope. In short: bespoke is made for you specifically, on the basis of an individually drafted pattern. MTM means the adaptation of a standard pattern to your measurements. Others may include the extent of handwork, etc., into the definition. On your price points: which currency are you using?
