Well... you have options: for warm-weather there are tropical weight wools (perhaps with a bit of silk mixed in to lighten things up), silk itself, there are cotton poplins, cotton seersuckers, and the classic summer linens and silk-linen blends. A good men's clothes store should have these in stock in time for the warm season & if frugality matters you're likely to find them discounted as the season comes to a close (you may still find remnants out there if you look). If it is quite hot, you'll want a more reflective surface and color so keep it on the lighter side of the spectrum (tans, creams, whites, taupes not the blacks, greys or navys that anchor your wardrobe the other three seasons of the year). Lightweight fabrics might not drape as well, or they might wrinkle more readily, but if you really do need to go with something for the "fourth season" that's the trade-off you have to make. And by all means remember that there are internet closeout specialists, similar "remainders" stores & thrift stores to check on to keep the price down. Good luck!
After living in Houston for a number of years, I have to say there's no such thing as tropical weight wool, at least not when you live in the tropics. Go with linen or silk and stick to summer colors.
If you're blond or redheaded or if you have a light or ruddy complexion, go with buff or tan. If you're olive or darker complected, you can wear just about any light color and look good, including white and cream which I unfortunately can't pull off.
Depending on what you mean by frugality and your body type, the Mens Wearhouse is having a sale on Calvin Klein linen suits right now. You can get a $500 suit for about $250. It's an English pattern, not Italian, so if you're thin or don't have a defined waist, look elsewhere, but if you're either wasp-waisted or heavy, you should be able to find your fit.
I live in Houston so light suits are key. Anyhow, few years ago, I got a nice white linen suit from Burligton Coat Factory. Didn't set me back much. You could try there if, depending on the store, you can find everything.
well there is always tropical weight suits and choosing lighter colors vs darker ones. I also like to use baby powder in areas prone to sweating and staying hydrated always helps keep me from sweating and getting too hot.
