I would think if one couldn't 'dress up' a cardigan enough then the occasion would be formal enough for a suit dressed down with an OCBD. If this is to be a basic wardrobe for a man uninterested in the subtleties of personal style, than keep it simple...when in doubt, suit up. I don't expect, not was I trying to convince you to change your list, but I do think its worth the discussion.
I think a silk-cotton or the warmer wearing silk-cashmere blend would ensure a nice hand and slight luster. If thickness or weight feels necessary even heavy linen wears pretty cool, and has textural interest. This combined with the shawl collar, which granted is a bit harder to find in cooler wearing textiles, equals a garment that holds its own.

Maccphail's Collection Bottling of Highland Park 8. Not as subtle and sorted as the on label HPs, but at 2/3 the price of the 12, I think it's definately worth picking up.
