In your opinion, how is the quality of the wool, and is it blended junk or decent stuff? After the wedding I want this suit to be my daily driver.
Most of the SuSu suits are made from pure virgin wool, others are cotton or linen. Some suits are made from blends of these three, or one of the first three with silk. All natural fibers, no polyester or other chemical fiber for their cloth. The lining though is made from a blend of polyester and bemberg silk, but that okay.
I'm by no means experienced, but they source their cloth from reputable italien mills and i should think it will hold up fine over time.
If you want the suit to be versatile, stick to simple stuff made from wool, as it will wrinkle less. In warm regions/seasons you want an open weave for breathability.
