Linen Suits in Vancouver and Phoenix (where to buy?)

Recommended Posts

So, the wedding is 6 weeks away, and we still don't have a suit for the groom! We're Canadian but my fiance is going to school in AZ, and we'll be in Van this weekend.

 

He is hoping to get a Tan Linen suit, but so far we aren't having much luck. He wants something fairly high end, but not too ridiculous (under $1500 and cheaper is good!). We've called around to Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, and Mark James, but we don't really know where else to try. It seems like no one is getting much linen this year (or when they do, it's white!). Any suggestions? We're not actually from Van, and we although we prefer to buy from a smaller store we don't know where to look.

 

If we can't find anything in Vancouver, we have to find something in Phoenix, so I'll take suggestions for there too (we've already called Nordstrom's, Neiman Marcus, and Saks without much luck).

 

The other problem is that my fiance is quite small (a 36, or a small 3cool.gif and a lot of stores only stock bigger sizes. We found a great Z Zegna suit for about $800, but we can't find the right size anywhere!!

 

Any help would be much appreciated! I'm trying my best not to panic :S

 

TIA

Hey Lyndsey,

My FI got his suit at Dillards when we were in phoenix two weeks ago. Its a tan/sand linen Perry Ellis Suit. I think it was like $70 for the pants and $165 for the jacket?! We had budgeted for $1500 but it ended up being exactly what he wanted. Maybe check there?

HI! I work at Banana Republic and we have a Chino Suit right now that is very very nice in a khaki color, we already bought a suit for my FI elsewhere but then this showed up. Great for a destination wedding. I cant remember if we stock 36's in the stores but you may be able to get it online. If you are in town you may as well check it out. Good Luck & have fun here in Vancouver!

We just bought my fiance and his groomsmen calvin klein tan linen suits from the men's wearhouse (it's under 2009 wedding looks - make a splash) - they are listed as not available yet online, but they are in the stores if there's one near you.

You can also check out Hugestore.com. They have a plethora of linen suits and my husband got his in white and the GMs in tan. You can check out my review and see quality for yourself. They looked amazing. Suits were $249 I believe!

thanks guys! We're going to try the "non-online" stores first because my FI has a really hard time with jacket fit, but I'm sure those online stores have good return policies so we'll check them out next week if this weekend doesn't go well. I can't believe I didn't think of Dillards; it's actually one of the only department stores in the small town we're living in!

 

Corvette, are there pants sold as separates, or linen shirts in BR right now? I need to find stuff for the GM too :S

My FI got the banana republic chino suit and it looks amazing! Not linen, but still a relaxed suit look. They sell them in separates, and i noticed yesterday that BR also has linen pants for men in (beige), but not sure if there is a jacket with it, i don't think so! I was in the pacific center store, so i am sure all of them have the same stock

 

Good luck

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
