What type of fabric am I looking for in a summer suit? What colours would look good?

Fabric: cotton, linen, any combination thereof, fresco (hard to find OTR)

Color: navy, lighter blue, khaki/beige, light gray. Really depends on your skin tone. If you're fair-skinned, maybe a little reddish complexion I wouldn't go with beige for example.

Does by any chance anyone knows the maker of this?

I wear a size 34 jeans and I am wondering if a size 34 trouser in Brooks Brothers would fit me or not. Is Brooks Brothers' trouser waist size true to size or is it a vanity size with a couple of extra inches thrown in?

My bb trouser fit tts. However, in my experience, i wouldn't take jean sizes for granted as denim tend to be more forgiving as it stretches more.

I recently purchased a Saks lambswool sweater from my local thrift store - I washed and dried it, but it feels unusually dry and coarse to the touch. The wool hasn't matted (felted): is there any way to restore the sort of plushness new lambswool items have?

Use Downy and/or regular hair conditioner.

Where can I get sports shirts for the fall in neck/sleeve length sizes? Most sites sell these shirts in S-XL (e.g. BB, Lands End), but I don't want to have to pay to have the sleeves tailored. I'm particularly interested in some casual flannel shirts or something.
I love these paisley socks that Perdog recommended last month: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/ca...4&ci_sku=N0PPG

I have a lovely Harris tweed jacket that I received as a gift. It looks great in the winter when I've got some thick layers underneath, e.g. an undershirt, a shirt, and then a thick jumper, if a bit oversized. However, I'd also quite like it fit well without having to wear so many layers. I should probably elaborate, that it is a little too wide in the shoulders, and little too big around the waist. My question is, would it be a good idea to get this altered at a local 'alteration' service? I live in Edinburgh, but I do not know of any tailors per se, only places that offer alterations. It's a great jacket, and since it's a gift I would feel even worse if it got ruined by someone who doesn't know what they are doing. I couldn't find any recommendations/reviews of tailors here in Edinburgh. Any advice would be great.

With a navy suit, would snuff suede shoes look better or dark brown suede. Please keep in mind that I am a conservative dresser. I am looking for a low key look rather than a flamboyant one

Both will do. The dark brown is a bit safer for your wishes, but I don't think the snuff will be flamboyant. (From these two I like the snuff better.)
