Seriously, do not go there wearing all white. Wear a neatly ironed dress shirt with 3/4 sleeves and black chinos pants. You may accessorize your clothing by putting on a hat or wearing a necktie. Try to humor them a little by deviating from the "white" motif of the party.

Wtf? Just wear a white dress shirt with rolled up sleeves. Got white jeans or chinos? Throw those on and wear whatever shoes/belt you got. Sometimes I feel people have no sense of the real world and SF approval/guidance/conformity is the only way one can get those through times in life that are really supposed to be fun and enjoyed. Sheesh....

MBreinen has a really nice white suit with patch pockets. A quick search in WAYWRN under his name should reveal it. It is my idea of the ideal white/off white suit to wear to a white party.

I'd go with a darker shirt with a nice tie to add some swagger.
