You should totally ask Wayne Reynolds thoughts on his sticky thread here. He thinks a lot about older era design and what they are like in collation.
There's a massive real - life costume diversity in Pathfinder. With fashion styles based upon periods of real - life history ranging from 3rd century AD to early 18th century AD (Approximately) Depending upon the in - game region.As of yet, I've not illustrated a Golorian equivalent of a 19th century tailored suit. I suspect if such a thing existed in Golorian (And I've no doubt that it probably does) then it'll have distinct medieval / renaissance aspects that fits with the Pathfinder visual aesthetic.
Galtic fashion (As worn by Aric) comes fairly close. It's loosely based upon 16th century Western European designs. But may be too decorative for a tailored suit.
Whilst Varisia and Cheliax resembles 14th or 15th century styles.
I would suggest that the sober and high-collared fashions of Ustulav might come the closest.
(Erasmus the Iconic Medium is wearing Ustalavian fashion though his outfit has a rural aspect to it rather than what someone may attribute to noble attire.)
However, you'd have to work out where your character would put all their equipment. As I tend not to include pockets into my medieval fantasy costume designs. I find that pockets make a costume look much too modern. Hence Pathfinder characters tend to wear pouches and bags.
I really like Dr Styx's suggestion that nobles might incorporate magical effects to their costumes. In a high fantasy setting it makes complete sense that they would do so. To some extent, they already do. Though it's not usually overtly flashy.
Perhaps small Bags of Holding strategically sewn on the inside of a tailored suit would preserve those pristine lines?
