    My fiance wants to wear linen and not dress up. I want him to wear a nice lightweight suit. I have come to the decision that maybe there is a linen suit out there some where. Does anyone have any clue where it could be?

      Dan wore a beige linen suit (sans a tie) that we bought from J. Crew. We also saw them at Banana Republic. I would recommend buying it now while it's still summer otherwise you may have difficulty in the fall/winter.

          We just did this last weekend. You better act fast if you want to do it this season. Most were on their way out.

          Macy's had some. Nordstroms moved theirs to The Rack, so skip looking at their store and go straight for The Rack.

          We found a few in JcPennys. They were alright- not the best. I also found some online at Target. I wanted to check to see if they were decent quality but I never made it there.

          We decided not to do a linen suit after all of this. We did find nice cotton/linen blend pants by Dockers at Macy's.

            my son actually has the target tan suit. it looks nice. photographs well. probably not the most comfortable fabric. a little thicker and stiff maybe.

                  Go to Macy's. They were having a huge sale (70% off) last week. We bought his suit there a week ago - last Thursday - and saved so much $$! They had quite a few to choose from actually. They had one by I.N.C that was nice. We ended up purchasing a really great Perry Ellis suit and paid $40 for the jacket and $17 for the pants! The pants were slightly long, but we are just going to hem them. Definitely check out Macy's soon because I'm sure they will go fast.

                    For those of you who had linen, did it wrinkle? I realize linen usually has wrinkles, but were they bad?
