comment Corporations, Jewish Shareholders and Interest
To my understanding in Halachos of Ribbis, if cases where one may lend or borrow with Ribbis there is no issue with who they borrow or lend from. Ribbis is an extremely complicated Halachic issue (at least to me) where small differences can make a large difference in Halacha.

comment Corporations, Jewish Shareholders and Interest
Igros Moshe Yoreh Deah 2:63 takes the position that a corporation, even if owned by Jews is exempt from the prohibition of borrowing with interest so long no individual is personally guaranteeing the loan. However regarding lending, the Igros Moshe says they would need to do it with a Heter Iska.

comment Shabbos Clothing and Disgracing the Festivals
DoubleAA: I think it would depend on the norms of the community. If one is in a Yeshiva community where the normal mode on Shabbos is a suit and white shirt then that would be considered Begadim Mechuvadim for him. If one lives in a community where a dress shirt and long pair of pants is the normal mode on Shabbos then that would be considered Begadim Mechuvadim for him.
