    @Domino and @Hebrew Barrister I think I'm going to keep my eye open for the next JC sale. I'd like to give this linen suit a try myself.

    If you're looking to split it up, Target has a cotton-linen blazer, quarter lined for 50 bucks. I mean, it's Target, but it's 50 bucks regular price. Depends what you want out of it.

    Any lining on a linen blazer is a nonstarter, imo. Defeats the entire point.

    I also have a JCF full linen blazer, fully unlined, that's even breezier than the JC cotton-linen ones. Yeah, it wrinkles if you so much as look at it from across the room, but I got it in the natural linen color so it kinda works. These, you actually can get for 50 on the right sale (i think I paid 40), and you still get fully unlined and the lowered button stance / higher arm holes of the JC designs.

    I considered it too, but then realized that as a banker, I knew that the occasions of me wearing it will be rather few. I spend most of my working days indoors, and my perception is that if it's really that hot for wool suit, taking off jacket for a while is perfectly acceptable.
