I haven't seen any carriers that hold more than 3 or 4 suits, certainly nothing for 6 suits and 3 SCs. You're going to need to use a suitcase with a nice suit folding method. I use large ziplock bags to keep them from getting crushed. It works reasonably well.

No suit bag is going to carry suits and 4 sport coats.

Large, hard sided suitcases are your only option to carry that many things.

How long are you going to be travelling that you need that many changes of clothing?

I'm leaving for a year. I was just hoping to avoid putting my really costly suits in the hold luggage. I've had luggage misplaced before. A few $2k suits are a pretty heavy hit. Plus my hold luggage is going to be a bit full of sweaters, boots, shoes, topcoats, and leather jackets.
Perhaps I'll just put my bespoke ones in a carry on and the others in the hold. Any recommendation on a 4 suit one, if that's the largest?

Adequate insurance of your own with the specific items declared is surely what you need?
