Fine woven wool suiting can be pretty pricey, but that isn't what you need. A polyester wool blend form the cheaper end of the rack would work out great. This is a case where shopping in person will do you a lot of good. Just get in the store and start touching fabrics.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive. Instagram: penlowe
My Etsy shop: I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
