    Suit Supply cotton suits (or any cotton suits for that matter)

    I've noticed a lot of cotton suits on the Suit Supply website. I'll admit I am big fan of SS and I have a lot of suits from them. The one I bought from them with a bit of a cringe was a Linen off white suit. It was made well and even half canvassed. It does wrinkle, which finally forced me to buy a steamer(great product). I wonder how many of you have ALL cotton suits and how do you put up with the wrinkle factor? I just feel that there are nice lighter weight wools that could still do the job(keep you cool) if you had to wear a suit during the summer.

    Cotton suits are inherently casual and a little wrinkling is part of the charm.

    wrinkling is just part of the character of cotton. same as linen, same as cotton/linen. i have a tan spier cotton suit (which I think will go to Boston next weekend) that's very comfy (pretty much no lining though, which is a MASSIVE factor) but it does get some wrinkles in the inner elbow and behind the knee. no biggie, accentuates the more casual nature of it.

    Embrace the wrinkle. I have a linen/cotton suit from SuSu and the suit is great for the summer months.
