I purchased $75 linen sets at the end of the summer for $33. Great deal for guys and quality. K&G mens wearhouse.

My Fiance was going to wear a linen suit, but we realized that its kind of a heavy material. We are getting married in Jamaica, and I didn’t want him to be sweating through the ceremony. I was fine with him just wearing a white linen shirt and khaki pants. We got the shirts from JCrew.

We had an awful time finding linen suits so we ordered custom ones from studiosuits.com.  The suit is AMAZING!  I was a little scared at first since it comes all the way from India but it was the perfect size and very good quality.  I would highly recommend them.

I went looking everywhere for linen suits during summer and couldnt find much. Most were a weird color. My ex Boyfriend or Best Friend, who is extremely fashionable and has a million suits, suggested Macys or Nordstrom and told me that linen suits are too wrinkly and he would advise against it.  He suggested wool.

I went to Nordstrom and the salespeople agreed that linen was extremely wrinkly and found an amazing sand colored SILK suit for me, on sale.  It was not shiny or anything, it was beautiful. Ended up buying it, I think it was around $300. My fiance tried it on and LOVED it (he’s not metro at all).  

I would strongly suggest looking at silk suits.  The suit I bought will probably be at Nordstrom rack at this point 🙂 Good luck.

@tanyat: My FH just went the other day and brought a lot of stuff on sale with an extra 50% off. He brought two linen sets and a few shirts to wear on our honeymoon for about $60!

If you have a K&G near you check it out. They sell women stuff too and they are having an amazing sale!!

@meerkat:  Do you have any pictures of the suits?  I am considering using them too, but can’t find any real pictures of people in them.  Did you order from them for all the groomsmen?  Also, how much did you pay?  Thanks!

My Fiance just received his suit from studiosuits.com last week. i even made a thread about it and posted a picture. i am like meerkat and HIGHLY recommend them!  great quality, exactly the color i wanted.  i had found out about them from another destination wedding website (i put their link in my thread here), so you can see even more reviews and pictures.
