Make that a damp cloth.
Looks like something Woodie Gutherie would have wornhttp://www.bing.com/images/search?q=woodie+gutherie&view=detailv2&&id=031E7C965B7A7EA79A3A71255131460287C1498A&selectedIndex=9&ccid=SRvMrJow&simid=608020640931447855&thid=OIP.M491bccac9a3080ce7bb87eb27ac397deo0&ajaxhist=0
Check out O'Connells in Buffalo, NY at least to get an idea of the range of style options for your overcoat. As you will see, their wide selection is very traditional: http://www.oconnellsclothing.com/Topcoats-and-Overcoats/
If you are going to bother going to Los Altos you might as well consider Menlo Park. Bob Stankovic has been my tailor for over ten years.

Caution: Unless you specify urgency, he may be late with an alteration. Bob Stankovic 1142 Chestnut St. Menlo Park, CA 94025 650-323-9614

One may always "go commando" with or without flannel trousers.

The lower back seems to be riding up. It should hang straighter. Perhaps letting out the waist will fix it. Over all the suit fits better than the majority of suits I see in my area.
