Hi, I am looking for a light tan linen suit for our beach wedding. I haven’t had much luck, and I know that summer is ending and I need to find it soon! Does anyone have suggestions as to where I might look? I’ve tried J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic and Macy’s.com. There are only darker brown tan linen suits or other strange colors. I’m looking for a light tan/khaki colored linen suit.
I have seen some cotton suits in the right color, but that seems a little strange. Cotton suit? Has anyone used one of these for their wedding? What about wool? I think wool might be nice but I haven’t seen any in the light tan color…
Can anyone help? I’ve seen so many pictures of grooms dressed in tan suits for beach weddings and I am at a loss as to where to find a nice one! And I don’t know which material is best for pictures, etc! Thanks in advance 🙂

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?

Thanks for the suggestion! I haven’t tried Nordstrom’s and will definitely check it out. I checked the Brooks Brothers outlet, as well as the website. The outlet only had one suit which came with the pants. The pants that came with the jacket that fit were something like 6 sizes too big, ridiculous! I think I’d rather get separates for the FH. I want him to look fabulous!!! Not that he wouldn’t anyway 🙂
I’m just wondering what fabric other grooms have worn for beach weddings … I love the look of linen but everyone has been warning me about how wrinkled they get!!!

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

Upon the recommendation of gabrielleelise1981, I tried Nordstroms. They are having a sale on suits right now, so I got a tan SILK suit for $300.00. The FH tried it on and it looked GREAT on him, everything fit perfectly.
I love the fabric. More dressy than cotton, less wrinkly than linen, and still with a summery feel. The FH loves it too. Yay! Thank you!

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!
