I am new to this forum, and the Kenneth Cole store nearby is having a major sale. I don't know much about the quality of KC but the price is a major concern. I feel like its too cheap to be good.

I would wear the suit 1-2 time a week. I am looking at the suit separates (60% wool) $198 for the Jacket and $98 for the pants. 40% off the total. How does this quality line up against other suits?

Your instincts serve you well.

Don't. Kenneth Cole is no better, in general, than any other department store brand. Just do yourself a favor and never buy a suit that is not 100% wool.

You can actually get a 100% wool Lauren by Ralph Lauren, etc or anything with the same quality construction for ~$200 new at TJ Maxx/A.J. Wright/Marshalls/Burlington Coat Factory (if price is a severe concern). Just look a solid color navy blue or charcoal grey solid or VERY subtle stripe. Not black, that's more of an evening out suit.

Awesome. I had a feeling it was too good to be true. I've made the mistake of buying a suit that is less than 90% wool in the past and its risky.

Run away as fast as you can!!! Now seriously I'd stay away of anything that's not 100% wool (or any natural fiber for that matter)

Yeah, linen suits can be very elegant for warm weather wear (although I don't own any).
