+1 on the thinner stripe.

Most any menswear shop (and hundreds of eBay sellers) will have silk knot cuff links. For $30, you could likely buy yourself a few pairs, and a couple of pairs for your father, too.

If you want something a little more formal, Jos. A. Bank currently has "silver" (they're actually rhodium-plated metal, which in some ways might be preferred to silver) knot cuff links on sale for 18 bucks and change. (If you miss today's sale on them, they'll doubtless be on sale again next week.) FWIW, silver knot links are my "go to" cuff links, as they're relatively discreet and understated, while being somewhat more refined than colorful silk knots. I don't know if there's a JAB in Vancouver, but I'm sure they'd ship them to you. Here's a link: http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_100195

Both silk and metal knot cuff links are double-sided, but are at least as straight forward as are toggle-back links, so I can't see that as being a drawback for your father.

Contact capnwes. He has an extensive antique cuff link collection.

That too.

When I saw it originally I didn't didn't have much of an opinion on either tie. Seeing it again on my PC I'd say go with the thin stripe.

Definitely plain navy or plain grey/charcoal. And stay away from peak lapels if it's your first suit.

My recommendation in order of importance:

Staples:
1. Plain navy
2. Plain grey/charcoal

Semi-Staples
3. Pinstripes
4. Window pane

Non-staples but fun to own/wear
5. Chalk stripes
6. Peak lapels

Is a lambswool v neck sweater casual, or can it be worn more formally? (Some people have said its casual because it's thicker than merino or casual)

The jacket kept going through my mind today, so just had to go and get it:

Worst case scenario it sits in my closet for a few weeks until I am totally sure what to combine it with. Think it wont stay in the closet long. Just gonna wear it with jeans and a dress shirt for now I guess.

This goes along with what Django posted, but is there an easy way to iron lapels to make a 3 button a 3 roll 2?

 

And @DjangoV, wear it with khaki's, cords, jeans, whatever!

Here's a link that suggests with some careful ironing, it's not very difficult. http://anaffordablewardrobe.blogspot.com/2010/01/hard-press-re-fitting-32-roll.html

 

Can't say from personal experience, though; I've never tried it.

So looks like he can make that 3 button behave like a 3 roll 2. I think that'd be worth a shot!

Wait. Are you from the boston area?
