Custom Tailor Suit/Shirts for Next Year: Please help

Hey guys, Im working at a large conservative PE firm next year and would like to update my wardrobe. Im going to Asia this summer for a trip and Im going to get a custom made suit there. I was wondering what to ask of my tailor specifically. Here is what I want to have made:

2-3 white spread collar shirts, some button downs thrown in
2-3 solid light blue shirts (NO French blue) in a mix of pinpoint, end-on-end, and broadcloth, same mix of collars as white shirts
Maybe 1 light pink one and 1 blue herringbone?

Does anyone have any help as to what shades of blue to ask the tailor? Thanks!


3 suits: Worsted Charcoal, navy, and grey?

Suits are going to be 2-button, notch lapels with belt loops. Side vent. Going to get 2 pairs of pants per jacket.

Should they be in the same color? As in 2 Navy, 2 Charcoal, 2 Grey
And also does everyone know what specific color names I should tell the tailor for the fabrics? Thanks!

Any other suggestions/details I need to mention would be great.
