Fitted British Style Suit

i posted this question on ask andy but thought maybe i would pick up some thoughts here as well....

I had posted in some other topics about trying to find some british inspired suit cuts (i.e. somewhat structured shoulder and chest, higher everything, supressed waist)....after doing quite a bit of research i am thinking seriously about a couple of different options.

perhaps a polo MTM suit, greenfield MTM through BB, oxxford mtm (although this may be price prohibitive), or perhaps a paul stuart. I am curious, given my anglo objectives desribed above which of these options you think is most likely to satisfy my goals. in other words, knowing that MTM is only going to be able to deviate from the 'base' model so much, which of these do you think the best option in my specific case...thanks a lot!
