Cashmere isn't a good choice for your locale. 100% wool (9-10 oz), or a wool/linen blend (70/30), would work well. Patch pockets are your least formal option. So if you're going to want to wear your blazer for a more formal occasion, might as well get flaps.

Looking at the seller's feedback, this seems to be his regular MO.
I am assuming ppl do this to avoid paying outrageous ebay fees. But I cant believe that ebay would allow this??
If they do allow it, I'm sure it will be short lived. However, it's a clever workaround.

Not a huge fan of the price tag jutting out of your shoulder.
But seriously, it's hard to tell re: fit given how dark the pics are. From a silhouette perspective, it looks decent. But hard to comment in any detail.

Summer definitely. It looks more like a blazer than a suit.
