I don't know, man. I like that look, but the request was for "wedding, funeral, party, night-on-the-town, date or nice dinner". Granted, there isn't anything that will work in all of those occasions, but I think the linen suit excludes weddings (except those taking place on a beach), funerals, indoor parties, nights on the town (except in places like Miami) and nice dinners. Don't you think?
Decent compromise in a lot of those situations might be a cotton suit.
