Dyeing a poplin suit

I have a handful of poplin, wash and wear summer suits made in the 80s by Brooks Brothers. They are all in various shades of khaki. I'd like to dye (or have dyed) one of them navy. I have no idea how to go about this, nor what I could expect. The dye job would need to be good enough that I could still wear the suit at times requiring some formality. The suits are unlined. Any advice?

Where can I buy acorns?

To make a quantity of black dye I need a couple of kilo's of oak acorns. In the UK I have, naturally enough, looked under oak trees but last years season was a non starter and the squirrels got up earlier than me. Google has failed me.
