Have decided to wear this suit to night's vigil, but had it been better with light blue shirt instead of this cream?

Here's a suit I inherited from my father. I guess it's likely from the late 60s or early 70s. The cloth has similar colours and complexity to yours.

And from where, might you ask, was this wondrously complex fabric sourced?

 

 

 

The suit itself is from a Viennese tailoring house. My guess is that it was made as a bespoke piece for my father.

 

 

For your information, the suit is a two-piece, total weight 1.9kg. If there's (say) 3 metres of cloth in there, and allowing for the weight of lining and canvas, I guess the fabric weight would be around 500-550g/m2. Heavy and warm, certainly; but somehow it still breathes well.

Indeed they don't make them like that any more. The looms are different now and such cloths will never come back.... I am very privileged to have a collection of couple dozens coupons of such fabrics. These are few coupons that I acquired recently: 

 

 

First one from the left is 100% cashmere. The next three are all wool, very similar in texture and weight to the one I presented (~600g). The most interesting one that I plan to use this winter is the lavender/purple/pinkish one on the right. It is incredible because from the distance it changes color to "glowing gray". I fell in love with it so much that I kinda regret that summer is coming :P 

 

And your father's suit fabric is Reid&Taylor. That is world's top league :D :D :D The lack of modesty on their tag inside the suit are no empty words ;) I have a coupon of striped mohair made by them that I plan to use this summer (looking into turning it into a DB suit). I think it can be my perfect summer suit as it is not light but the weave is open so I hope for some air inside.

Would this work with a silk version of this tie? I like the jacket and have one virtually identical in color/pattern. I also have a silk neat tie in a very close shade of rust (on my monitor at least).

Keeping it simple.

Burberry 
Armani 
Drake's
Borrelli

Not a fan of the low (non?) contrast between shirt and tie. For me, this tie only works with a white shirt.

You have a mannequin in your house? Or was your dad just really, really pale?

Mine has a fair amount of sheen, yours really looks like a wool tie on my monitor.

Nice colours. The jacket seems a little short although the fit seems good otherwise.
