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?

Stupidly used a huge and expensive stainless steel stockpot to do some home fabric dyeing with a cheap powder dye (Dylon or something very similar). Can I safely reuse this pot if I can get it looking new again with Bar Keeper's Friend? [more inside]
