Fabric ID?
 Lots of good stuff, but this really enjoyable to me. The PI tie can't be ignored, but everything else is sedate, and the tie is unusual and has enough whimsy that it feels approachable rather than out-of-place or jarring, if that makes sense.
 My favorite of a bunch of great fits. Lots of brown variations (not surprisingly) but all playing well off each other in a way that you don't feel like it's too brown.
^ Ambiguous question on my part. How do you like the Piuma?
Thanks, @FlyingMonkey! Given your post, I actually think it would be great to see the two combinations that you describe, particularly with the Post Imperial ties. How to travel light and stay comfortable tastefully in the summer seems squarely in this thread's wheelhouse. So visual accompaniment, please!  @emptym That's great! Looks super comfortable and relaxed but also just formal enough to go almost anywhere. And that hopsack Formosa. Dude! That thing is...
 I like the colors but don't care for the amoeba, but that's just me. I prefer A8, which is similar. I got a third variation that has the same base but diamond shaped medallions. Not surprisingly, it's my favorite of the three.
 J1 doesn't seem that demanding of the viewer's attention to me, which is why I chose it. YMMV of course.  Here's a close-up of it. It's probably a fabric that could be used as jacketing (maybe it was made as jacketing), but it would be a rustic jacket. And the color is much better for a tie than a jacket. 
I wish that the V were lower on this particular Steed but prefer its drape, buttoning point, and jacket length. The Caraceni is a bit too close in the chest and the line from the chest is too straight. I love the belly on the Caraceni lapels but also enjoy the shape of Steed's as part of the whole.
The courduroy that NMWA used for the Eidos double-breasted suit seemed like it was soft and drapey when I saw it in person. Seems that way in @gdl203 photos. The description on the site says that it's from Pontoglio.
