Patina on suits

How shabby should a suit become? Yes, old money and so on, but we are talking about an oily sheen.

Opinions?

Done!

And bought 2 suits from Harvie & Hudson, navy blue, 2 button, lightweight fabric, quite standard style, ok-ish fabric. They will be abused in air and rail travel and binned in 3-4 year.

What is the fit and construction like?

Definitely not "modern". Slightly more boxy/roomy, butt covered by jacket, traditional lapel width. Not worth more than the 300pounds I paid in sale. But exactly what I need for the job.

The ones from cordings/pakeman catto carter feel more "substantial" and "traditional" and "robust". H&Hs have belt loops and zip front, Cordings have button front and side tabs.

Friends, please feel free to laught at me but the suits are just right for their job. Slightly loose fit, comfortable, neutral, like a canvas.

Laugh at you? Never. It goes against my nature to laugh at people who cry out for assistance.

Provided the patina is not a Sir Les Patterson euphemism.
