Carry your jacket and loosen your tie and top button. It's just gonna be hot. When I was in NYC I rode the subway and I kept a change of socks and undershirt at the office for the days I sweated thru those items before making it out of Union Square.

Guys, if he's interning for a federal judge, do you think he is going to get a MTM suit with Loro Piana or Holland & Sherry fabric, or search for a fresco fabric? While nice suggestions, I am going to go out on a limb and say that ain't happening for money, time, and give a $%^! reasons. Even if he did MTM, by the time it arrived his internship would be half over.

Suitsupply has some wool/linen fabrics. I have one and it does wear cooler than an all wool suit.

Go to suit supply, and buy some linen or linen mix suits, and then go to kamakura and buy some linen shirts. You can't get it much cheaper than that. Or save the money and use it on cabs instead.

I like the suit supply idea. Actually dropped into the soho location sunday in search of a linen blend, but the selection was pretty sparse in fairly normal sizes. I'm hoping the madison ave store has a better selection.

It's best to find your size in store and order the suit online.

Wear an unlined linen summer suit(In conservative colors) on your way to work, with your wool work suit in a garment bag. 

Change to your work suit in the toilet/stall. 

Keep your summer suit in the garment bag, tucked under your desk.

 

Should be pretty easy and painless?

Why would you wear a suit just for walking? I'm sure a linen mix suit in a conservative colour is more than appropriate for the office.

This is silly advice!

Ideally linen/wool, but linen/silk or linen/cotton can work as well.
