That's called "thrift find where prior owner hung his clothes on bedroom rack exposed to elements". Window or door open, no screen, moths come in, bam!
My personal near misses usually revolve around missing pants to otherwise great looking jacket. Holes do not bother me much, if they are small and reweavable, I would be willing to go out of pocket if the item was worth it. Obviously if it is an orphan jacket holes would be deal killer of the century.
In your case, Oxxford Saint Andrews Brioni are not worth fixing if sport coats - margins are too small.
