Are these sentences correct:

1) His suit for wearing at official ceremonies is at the cleaner's, but his other suits are here.

2) My jacket for wearing in rainy but warm weather is lost.



Gratefully,
Navi

Yes, that's exactly how "for wearing" is used. It's unlikely we'd say those particular sentences (We'd usually say his "formal suit" or his "good" suit/"my light-weight rain jacket" or "summer rain jacket").

But don't worry about that - now that you know how to use it, one day you'll be writing a sentence and you'll just realise that "for wearing" is going to be the best way to express it.
