    Strongly wanting one...trying to comb through the internet's thoughts can be dizzying.

    I don't expect to need another tweed suit.. I wore suit to office every day for 40 + years.. gave away dozens.. culled my wardrobe to shorts track shirts, saved one navy suit for weddings, funerals and graduations..

    Got one like this a long time ago and loved it. Too hot for Florida (even in the winter!).

    Just make sure it wasn't produced using the original mordant...

    Sadly, I don't know what this means.

    Early in my career, I often wore three-piece wool suits, most of them bought at Brooks Brothers. I don't know if they sell those anymore.
