Interesting.  Imo/e it's the opposite regarding hemp and linen.  I have shorts, shirts, jeans, t-shirts, etc. in hemp and prefer it to linen.  But it's not a huge difference. For those who are interested in hemp, P. Johnson has it in 10.5 oz from Delfino, the top two tans: 
The great thing about seersucker is that it doesn't need ironing. 
Thanks a bunch, Nick.  Will do.
That would be wonderful.
Chambray can be woven more or less tight or loose, thick or thin.  Fresco comes in different weights, but all have open weaves.  Fresco and linen have different purposes.  Both are good for warm weather.  Fresco is more formal and highly wrinkle-resistant.  Linen wrinkles as soon as you put it on.  Linen is often machine washable, while fresco must be dry cleaned.
I don't have a particular one to recommend, although, I'm planning to have jeans made in one of these two fabrics: http://luxire.com/products/linen-grey-chambrayor http://luxire.com/products/linen-grey-twill-chambray-jeans Stone is lighter than tan.  Very versatile, from worn rumpled w/ light blue chambray on the weekend to pressed and worn w/ a sport coat (navy blazer, tan or green cotton or linen, etc.).  If I could only have four pants, they'd be tan and stone cotton...
Lol.  In all seriousness though, I admire his wearing some of the same clothes 50 years later.  I still wear a belt that I've had for 30 years, but 50 year old tweed is next level.
He said it was a fashion show.
Grey's a great color for linen pants and would go well w/ blue seersucker, navy pique, or anything white, red, green, brown.  Pretty much anything.  Tan or stone are the two best colors for chinos imo.  A light, faded olive would be nice.  Or faded black.  Navy reminds me too much of my grade school uniform, and copper's more of an outdoorsy color, imo, great in canvas with boots and a flannel or chamois shirt.
