Better deal, IMHO, is going on right now at Bloomingdale's: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/catalo...tegoryID=19235 I just picked up a couple of sweaters off the site. Supima, in a bunch of colors. Some of the colors that were available in the morning are now gone.
Dude does not have a good rep on SF. See the comments on this thread dealing with a previous Groupon deal. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=217147
Received another pair last week; great quality as always. I had the same problem with the laces as one poster had above--pair that came with the shoes broke as soon as I tried to tie them--but I was going to replace the laces anyway. Some incredible deals still available.
I did some research earlier this spring on the subject. STP (Sierra Trading Post) has a good deal for Haspel seersucker for $130, if you used the 30% off coupon code that's on the front page. The Haspel suit is very boxy, however, and I had to have significant alterations on the jacket. If you're going to spend more than $175-$200, then I would go with Bonobos. The quality strikes me as nicer. Note there's a $50 off coupon for first-time purchasers....
I am heading to Rehobeth for Memorial Day weekend. I haven't been to an outlet in years (pre-SF days), and I was wondering which, if any, people would recommend. Do any of these outlets carry any mainline items, or is it all made-for-outlets clothing (e.g. BB 346)?
Why not a mid-grey morning coat? By September, there's a good chance linen will be too cold.
While SF mandates that black suits are only acceptable for funerals and formal wear, and I believe we overlooked an important third occasion: sentencing in a federal insider trader case. From the NYT: "Mr. Rajaratnam, dressed in a black suit, had no expression as the verdict was read in the overflowing courtroom." No wonder he was found guilty on all counts.
I see plenty of light grey in court during the summer. May look odd in colder months, but I'm not as far south as you.
Whoever got those JL monks is a lucky, lucky man. Beautiful shoes.

Is this for work? If you're in a profession where a suit is expected work attire (e.g. lawyer), then cotton and linen are your friends. White bucks are not necessary; light brown works fine (in fact, I can't recall seeing someone at work sport...
