Don't guys wear the collar up on suit jackets anymore?

No. I didn't think so. But my fiance has that as an absolute requirement for a suit jacket. He needs a new suit for our wedding, and so far, everything we've looked at gets ruled out immediately because the first thing he checks is the collar. He insists on being able to "pop" the collar, but it appears all new suit jackets have this felt lining underneath, so that really won't work to upturn it at all. He likes the old Dean Martin style of clothes, so it's probably a problem with modern styling...
Where can we find a suit that has a jacket with a collar without the felt lining? I really have no other style requirements right now—finding one that he can upturn the collar is the first and most important thing.
Bonus points if it's a suit we can get for $100–200. (I know they exist!) This isn't something that has to last forever, he just needs to look good for one day. :)
