First, thanks to everyone for their help here. Went for the bulk of the advice, except I went for Super130 wool instead of Mohair. This is a fully canvased suit, 2x vent, 2x button. Took it over the course of 2 fittings, over 3 weeks. Did it together with the double-cuff, light blue shirt, made of two-ply cotton. Total cost was about US$670. This is my first ever bespoke, even tailor made, suit. I am generally happy with it, although I'm aware that it may require some alterations. This is another shirt made about 4 months ago. At a different tailor. Also double-cuffed and made of two-ply cotton. Cost me about US$90. Comments welcome and appreciated!
