I'm not sure if this will do, but is your summer office a business suit workplace, or a jacket-and-tie workplace? In my thrifting experience, sack blazers aren't so tough to come by. It's the suits that are difficult to find (particularly those that don't require a ton of tailoring).

As a southerner, I suspect you know this feeling, but: It gets sticky in DC in the summer, so if you're going thrifting, remember to keep the fabrics light!

Solid advice from the guys above. One more thing to add (and I'm ready to take heat for this): it's OK not to dress 100% trad. There is some nice stuff available at Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory, etc. that is cheap and will hold up nicely for at least the summer. Some even look "trad-like" in terms of colors and little padding on the shoulders. Those chains don't carry sacks as far as I know, but if you need a couple of suits on the cheap-cheap that look decent and hold up for the summer, you could do worse.
