Fitting new cables

I'm just enquiring the best place to buy new cables to put onto old frames. I'm aware cables need to be cut and fitted but was just thinking is there anywhere that sells reels of the outer casings - which can be cut to length plus new inner cables with cable ends and crimps.
Ideally looking for grey/white outer cables without too much wording on them.

Thought I'd ask the experts rather than buying something I may regret.

Are there outer cables more suitable for classic bikes as I find that the modern ones are a different diameter and will not fit cable stops especially with ferrules fitted ? I had a rather exciting experience once when applying a handful of brake to see the outer cable shedding the outer covering and slip through the lever ! :ohmy:
