P.S.: Noticed someone posted Louis Erard and that's an EXCELLENT recommendation.
I don't know if you want dressy or casual but for casual, Glycine has some very attractive options in their "Combat" and "Incursore" lines. The other recommendations are going to be too expensive. And if you find a Rolex for $500, it will be one that has been run over by a train. Also, go to www.watchuseek.com, a website where watch nuts buy and sell. I have bought 5 or 6 watches from guys there, all at great prices.
Suit looks great. In the interest of being nice, I'll say that I believe the shirt cuff treatment gets points for originality. Has anyone ever seen this before?
Striped tie just doesn't look good. I have a similar gingham shirt and always wear a solid knit tie. Nothing else has seemed to work - the shirt just has too much going on. But based on your dot combo, I will try it, so thanks!
Pea coat. I found the Polo one to be the nicest fitting (for under $500) but the buttons are sewn on for shit. Also, Spiewak (maker of original pea coat I think) has some decent casual styles and you can find them on Zappos.
Used to use them. Had a leaker. End of story for me.

I doubt you want to go custom made. A standard point collar works well with a pin. See if www.tiebar.com has any. If the spread on the collar is too wide, it will not hold together. Also, I question the use of this accessory--something of an affectation, IMO, especially without a dressy suit. But since most doctors dress like shit, with hideous ties and "comfortable shoes" (plus chinos), you'll stand out for sure! Good luck with it.
Price is decent, but watch the sizing. All of their stuff is cut small, which is typical of English outerwear. I had to upsize on two of their pieces. Check that out carefully, I would suggest.
