Try Nordstrom’s. We were just there getting my FH tux, and they are some really nice khaki colored suits. I’m surprised that Brooks Brothers didn’t have one – I could have sworn my FH has a suit jacket from them that’s light tan (he’s Brooks Brothers obsessed!) – did you call Brooks Brothers and ask?

Have you tried Overstock.com?  We got 2 of our GM’s suits from there.  They have so much stuff!

@futuremrskelsey:

Try Weddingtropics.com   That’s where I’m getting our guys custom made shirts and it’s not too terribly expensive either! Good Luck!

I work for Perry Ellis and we have a linen herringbone suit that is out right now in Macy’s/Lord and Taylors….  I bought the pants for my BF to wear to a couple of beach weddings this summer…

that is the jacket on the website… the pants are on there too… i think i have a 40% friends and family code that I can get you tomorrow… if you are interested in that PM me, they are strict about posting the F&F code on forums…

Also, if you have a Perry outlet store near you, they should have them there…  thats where I wound up getting the pants, and without my corporate discount, they only cost $35….

Oh and as far as fabrics go, it depends on how casual you wanted to go… linen will be a little less than cotton, but both will wrinkle, unless the cotton has a special finish.  Wool will be too hot, I think…

no need for further recommendations. OP has already posted that they found a suit!
