Single breasted three piece suit with single breasted waistcoat in a very light weight tweed.
Cloth would be a medium brown herringbone with merlot and gold overcheck.
Flap pockets slightly angled (no ticket pocket!)
Something like this but with the base replaced with medium brown, the white replaced with gold, the darker blue replaced with merlot
Notch lapels on the wider side at 3.75"
Contrast stitching in merlot on the boutonierre
Almost unstructured shoulder, but with one or maybe two ultrathin pads, and a natural, unbroken line from shoulder to upper arm
A bit of a fuller cut body but, to avoid a boxy appearance, combine with open quarters and the higher armholes and narrower sleeves associated with a slim cut suit
Classic length on the jacket hem, about 32"
Slightly higher button stance on this SB, with lowest button coming in at about 1.25-1.5" above waistband
Dark brown 100% buffalo horn buttons
Pants would be flat front, no cuff, with the slightest break at the hem, and hem would have a very subtle angle so that the heel hangs a fraction lower than the front. Side fasteners and buttons for braces. Like the jacket, pants would be a bit more full cut than the current fashion, only very slightly tapered, with an 8.5" leg opening.
Ultimately something approximating below but with the fabric specs mentioned above, the shoulders less structured, the jacket a bit less suppressed in the waist, and the pants a bit less tapered:
Occasion is for wearing the first day of class, winter quarter, to scare my students. Tweed is to college students in Northern California as garlic is to vampires.
