- Usually a wool suit would be better (the "keep it simple" advice is a good one, specially for job interviews) - Avoid wearing shirt and tie without jacket

IMO both far better options, even when going for a more casual look. Yes, there are many kinds of nice men bags that combine well with a suit (specially a briefcase), but deffinetely not backpacks.
Cream dinner jacket would be the right choice. However, it is most commonly worn without handkerchief. Harrison Ford's picture was a nice example, here's another one: the always elegant Bryan Ferry wearing a shawl lapel cream dinner jacket (in a very 80s music video...)

Better to wear a jacket. I also wouldn't recommend wearing a shirt and tie without jacket. A navy blazer or a linen sporcoat will work. You can combine them well with chinos. And brown shoes are acceptable too.
Dark grey, dark blue or black would be a good choice for your first overcoat. Also, some % of cashmere would be nice. You don't need a 100% cashmere overcoat, there are quality wool fabrics with 30% cashmere. Regarding the fabric weight, 22 to 28 oz should be enough.

True, a suit with this fabric and design is not very difficult to combine. White shirt will always look great, and there are dozens of tie combinations that will work. Try with a dark tie, to create some contrast.

Navy is a nice choice for your linen suit. This season many customers are choosing linen fabrics, specially in dark colors such as navy, dark brown and even black. Some people will instantly imagine white and light cream suits when they think about linen suits, but there are many other possibilities. A navy linen suit is more versatile, you can wear it in more occasions (even work) and still enjoy the benefits and comfort of linen.
