Looking for a White Suit

While wearing white suits is usually reserved for certain unique individuals, once a year we get to wear all white for the jewish high holidays.
So I've been looking for a decent quality suit for around $200-$300. I was ready to buy this suit http://www.ahfashion.com/White_Mens_Suits/576
but I dont know how reputable this site is or if the suit is any good. I was speaking with Jeff from Wizard of Aahs, from whom I bought a wonderful suit a few years back and gave me a little feedback on the suit to make me think twice.
I was hoping for wool, and even though White does get dirty, I would only wear it once a year so it's not that much of a concern. The only concern I have is I hear White wool yellows over time. I'm not sure if this is true.

In which case I would consider a Cotton or Linen Suit (no Blends are allowed however)

Does anyone have any advice or even recommendations for a white suit?


Thanks

You will not get a decent suit of any description for that budget.

Suggest that you just buy something that fits reasonably and given that you only want it for some form of religious observance where quality should be irrelevant, buy anything that meets that fit requirment and any funny strictures on fibres.
