I've ridden with clip-ons, and I really couldn't see what all the fuss was about, at least for street riding. At the track, that position is ideal (it's as aerodynamic as you can get).

 Banana Republic has some of the best suits at the $500 price point, but you'll probably need to tailor them. For a slightly higher price point, you can go to the Men's Department at Nordstrom, which has their own tailors.
