    Yes it's the cost of the suit. Don't know what portion of that price corresponds to the cloth itself, but the suit is kinda inbetween MTM and bespoke, so I guess not much.

    I know people who paid more than that for a 2pc suit length... suboptimal.

    I have the price list at home for H&S, if I recall their basic cotton is in the $50-60 a yard range for cut pieces but if your tailor bought an endbolt or discontinued piece, it would be about 50% cheaper.

    Yes, some old stock from my tailor. Also did a navy with red paisley for the suit he is making me now.

    I'd do the bottom left. Blends in the most seamlessly and the fabric already stands out enough.

    I think the light one would also work but the two dark, definitely not.
