Buying a Suit - Short Stocky Build

I am trying to figure out what I need to know when going into buy a new suit.

With my build I can’t get away with slim fit clothes.

What’s a good resource to look at for finding ideas for a new suit. Trying to not make myself look shorter than I am, or wider than I am.

What are some things to consider when shopping that I should be looking for?

Style?
Lapel width?
Tie style?
Cut?

I live in London so I don’t have as many places to shop. Moore’s seems to be most common. Can I find something there or should I avoid it?

I don’t wear a suit everyday, once a couple months. But I’d like to have a nice fitting stylish suit for special occasions.

To be on the safe side. You should stick to Navy or Charcoal grey with Notch lapels and flat front pant.

Lapel width should be 3 inches and more. I believe the standard is 3 to 3.5 .
