In my opinion, nothing equals a tropical wool. I have never heard that it does not hold lighter colors. I have light colored tropical wool trousers. A linen suit looks like you took it out of the laundry hamper. At one time I liked the look, but now I don't. Cotton wrinkles less, but it doesn't have the smartness of wool. However, you may opt for cotton as a compromise if you want a less formal texture than wool. Good luck.
