Silk is seen as a traditional spring and summer fabric. However, it is the world's best insulator. So, unless the weave is very open, it is HOT.

I don't see much pull of the lapels. I do see a suit that has some very closed quarters, a relatively high buttoning point and a tie that needs to be retired. Get a shirt with a wider spread and you should be fine with this jacket. Also, as one who used to take pics in the mirror all the time, Windex does wonders. Mike
I have a horizontal striped dress shirt, dark blue and white with a contrast collar. Mike
