I have now made this suit three times. Each time i modify the patterns slightly to get a better fit. I have also been trying different methods on the pockets to see what gives the cleanest look.
The picture I uploaded doesn’t include the vest.
I wasn’t able to use proper suiting wool since I have yet to find a place to buy it in solid colours. Instead I used a loosely woven wool.
