I'm in the market for a new dinner suit and it looks like my size. Forgive my ignorance here as I'm still learning, but what is it about a hundred year old suit that makes it desirable? I'm really curious about this stuff.

Thank you for the information. It looks like an amazing suit, but I'm not sure if it's right for me. I'm sure someone will snatch it up soon enough though. Cheers!
