I hear you. It's not enough for people to simply say "I (don't) like it, so I (don't) buy it." They have to come up with sometimes asinine, overly complex rationalizations to make it seem like they're making the only logical choice. If you take care of them, then even cheap, leather shoes can last for a long time.  
First, contact your friends to verify that their idea of "black tie" is what you have in mind. Some people use the words "formal" and "black tie" when they only mean "wear a suit."   Second, go from there.   EDIT:   Third, don't wear that vest. The double-lapel 3-piece is one of the worst-looking suits out there, but I see it quite a bit. I guess guys think that it makes them look more fancy. It makes them look like idiots...just my opinion though.
I'm not too familiar with SuitSupply, but I'd assumed this. The full-canvass alone seems like it would add at least an extra $150-$200 over half-canvassed rtw...emphasis on "AT LEAST."
 
...not sure, but if they franchise, wouldn't it make more sense to contact THEM?
If you have a fit/muscular build, then a really slim polo works great for the summer. Old Navy slim fit polos are good IMO. Paying more than about $15 is a waste of money. ON polos can be found between $12 and $15. Some things aren't worth paying premium prices for.
Peaks are fine, but that looks like an orphan. Of course, it may look more textured in person.
+1 If you're going for a tight fit (not slim, tight), then you nailed it. I'm guessing that it feels very restricting and hot in the upper-body.
To be honest with you, every suit in those pictures looks like shxt. Some of them look a little less shxtty than the rest, but I'd be very disappointed with all of them.
I would have gotten working buttonholes to begin with rather than going through this jazz. If you have to pay to get them added, then skip it.
