    Yes. New and Lingwood sells detachable collar RTW. They also have a bespoke shirt department.
    Ergo, they should be able to produce detachable collar custom shirts.

    I had a tux shirt made collarless. I actually gave them a Brooks Brothers detachable collar formal shirt to copy.

    Given how unusual it is, they will probably need lots of instructions (pictures, sample shirts, whatever).

    Yes, most of the bespoke shirtmaker still doing it. Especially HK shirtmakers, since many lawyers still wearing it.
    I have few shirts made by Ascot Chang using detachable collars.

    Legal tailors near Chancery Lane do a lot of the detachable collar stuff.

    not difficult at all.
    the only issue is getting the band and collar to fit correctly.
    bring a sample collar with you to the fitting.
