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.

But you can always go to TheTieBar.com and get some more interesting squares for $8. Nobody answered your question...
I love brown and I have a great brown herringbone suit from Mr. Ned. I've been known to wear it with: Pale blue dress shirt Pale lavender/pink dress shirt White dress shirt with brown and beige stripes Royal / white gingham shirt Camel tan turtleneck sweater Would work in the evening with a black turtleneck, too.

Def too big. Also, generally you want to avoid darts on patterned shirts like your vertical stripe.
