Hacking, almost certainly not. Ticket pockets can be OK. Apart from Butler (above), John Hitchcock of A&S likes ticket pockets on his own DBs. Nevertheless, there are arguments to keep the front of the jacket less complicated. Some would even do without flaps on the pockets.
I'm not familiar with these specific plans, but in general the relative merits of the plans depends on your tax status and what you expect it to be. If you expect to have a low-ish retirement income, a conventional IRA-type thing is better. You get deduction against your higher taxes now, and withdraw when you're in a lower bracket.

An 11-12 oz Mistral would be a much more standard hopsack, of which there is at least one book out there. Holland & Sherry, I think. Either that, or there is the LL Brisa quality, which is essentially a 13oz fresco. Lovat Mill certainly knows how to make those.
