I think this sort of thing is rather popular around here.

Loads of great 1940's/50's/60's fedoras for sale in sizes 7 1/8 - 7 1/4, here.
Far too big!
Just right. Except the pants are too tight (even when let out).
No actually the jacket is too snug as well. Well no temptation then (a bit pricey anyway).
The jacket buttons are fastened the wrong way.
I think that suit would fit me if I took up the hems on the trousers. But the width of the shoulders in the coat is a BIT much, I think. At any rate, the price scared me off before the measurements did.
...Where did you get that hat, where did you get that tile? Isn't it a nobby one and just the proper style! I should like to have one just the same as that. Whereever I go they'd shout "hello, where did you get that hat?..."

A reasonable price for such a suit. I haven't heard of Famo-Spun fabric before.
i imagine that a blend of linen and angora would be very similar to Palm Beach in feel. might have been a Palm Beach (inspired) rival fabric.
