Well here's the rundown of what you'll get as a house style so you can let them know what you may or may not want: -Lapels are almost flat on most of the suits. -Pocket flaps are curved toward the front of the jacket, and then squared off at the end. -Shoulders are built up considerably and seem to curve down from the neck rather than go straight. -Lapels are about 3.25" wide and with a normal gorge height. -Sleeve buttons are waterfalled as standard. -Trousers have a button tab at the front fly. -Pleats are reversed (American or Italian style) instead of forward. -Not too much waist. Trousers have a pretty good fit. Armholes are pretty standard. Chest is a bit big for my liking. All this is judged by the "comfortable" fit spec and generic "British cut" specified. I'd suggest going with something fairly inexpensive as your first suit, like the tropical wool, and for other reasons which I'll discuss below. That way you can see if you like the company's work. Get it fully canvassed for $40 more if you can help it. You can do this by specifying "hand padded spec" in other instructions when placing the order. Most of all, discuss with them over email what you want with pictures so you both know what's going down and ask if you're unsure of anything. As both professional and everyday suit for the spring, summer, and fall, I don't think you can beat the tropical wool in grey or taupe malt. With that suit, a vest comes with it as standard. Take the opportunity, just don't get any of the overdone vest styles. A three piece gets you places since it can be worn with or without the vest and thus be dressed up and down easily. I'd suggest a classic two button jacket with normal to lowish button stance from what I've seen of your build, and since it just happens to work on tons of people. Patch pockets are out of the question for business. A ticket pocket is a nice touch, but you don't have to. I may be getting personal here, but don't get belt loops with a tailored suit. You just plain don't need 'em, and with a vest it'll throw off the look. If anything, ask for side adjuster buckles which will keep the look clean. Other forum members, like whoopee or norcaltransplant, can vouch for the usefulness of them. Pleats or no pleats is your choice, but if you get pleats ask for them to be forward -- the English style. Makes a better line on the leg and doesn't look as baggy at the hips when sitting. Cuffs are fine, but only get them if you get pleats. With flat fronts they never look right. Back pockets are strictly up to you. I doubt anyone at work will give you a hard time if you have just one or even none at all. As for length of pants and jacket, it's important for them not to be too long. Jacket right where your buttocks end, pants covering 1/2-2/3 the back of your shoe (minus sole and heel). I'd get the jacket at least a bit waisted and the armholes a little higher. Higher gorge, narrower lapels. Those shoulders on the blazer you're wearing seem to help. I'd get your jacket with something like that. Hope this helps. I'm sure everyone else can help you as far as style and fit goes too.
