My brown herringbone suit from Mr. Ned. Bonus brown content: $24 Timex watch from Target.
I'm not a fan of cuffs, primarily because everyone I see wearing a $100 suit has cuffed trousers. But this is one of those rare things in sartorialism that is completely a matter of personal preference. Unlike pleats, which are horrible without exception, there's no right or wrong here. Get whichever you like.
I love navy. Not just for suits, but for polos, turtlenecks, etc. It's really remarkable how flattering it is to almost everyone. However, I'd like to take this opportunity to state that if you wear black shoes with a navy suit, you are a filthy pigf**ker. I thank you for your time.
I have a cotton twill suit from L.L.Bean Signature and I think it's great -- nice deep khaki colour, high notch on the lapel, working button holes on the sleeves. I believe it was about $200. The trousers were a tad full but nothing a little tailoring couldn't fix.
Does it have to be linen? You have so many more options if you're open to cotton or a cotton/linen blend.

That's a whole lot of self-selection, with each choice to participate adding some layer of reasoning (interest,...
My 40-ish rule would be: WWJBD (What Would James Bond Do?) Daniel Craig was 38 when he played James Bond in Casino Royale and 40 in Quantum of Solace. In both films the character wears a lot of age-appropriate casual wear and looks fantastic doing it. Study those films and you'll see a lot of ideas for types of clothing (polos, shawl cardigans, etc) and also brands (Ted Baker, Sunspel, Tom Ford when you can afford it).

It's too bad I only have white pocket squares if I'm gonna wear blue/pink shirts to the suit though. That's fine, actually. Matching your pocket square to your shirt is way overrated. But you can always go to TheTieBar.com and get some more interesting squares for $8. Nobody answered your question...
