Building a Clubman: What kind of Handlebar?

Hi everyone,

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am looking to build a replica of the Raleigh Clubman. See link https://sheldonbrown.com/retroraleigh...an-kohler.html

My question is what handlebar do I buy to get that look? Here are a few considerations.

Type of riding: Commuting around the city. Occasional longer rides on the weekend.

1. Is it possible to use a bar end brake? (My setup will be 1 front brake and a back coaster brake)

2. Comfort. More than one hand position is desirable. I would like a space at the top and be able to use the drops as well. I like the major taylor bars by soma however, they only offer one hand type.

So what kind of handlebar? Nitto randonneur? nitto road 115?
