From what you are saying khaki seems the best options, Saks may be more open-minded about a light suit then a more conservative working environment. If you concerned about the colour, then go for grey. For an interview, navy or grey is ideal, although I would rank one above the other.
Location and cloth need to be considered: In HK, a lightweight cloth - maybe, although probably best to go without Royal Ascot, morning formal wear - hell yeah!
I would have voted Vox; however, too much blue for my liking. I wonder if he is starring in the Smurf movie.

Like there are striped jackets that do not look like suit jackets, there are striped trousers that do not look like suit trousers. You can wear the trousers with a shirt and jacket; however, you are better of wearing a sweater that will break-up the look and not make it seem you are matching the trousers to the jacket. It terms of the jacket, plain or little/faint pattern would be best. You can get away with a striped shirt (different stripe style to the...

How much costs Capello? A few millions squids a year... Huntsman did make the suits for the '66 England team. The FA keeps changing suit supplier- Paul Smith, Burtons 2002, Armani 2006 and now M&S. Personally, I think the FA should only be using Engish...
I have a pair of Gieves' shoes, which are Cheaney-made. Shoes at retail are over-priced; however, during the sales, a good purchase.

Not in my main suit rotation; however, I have worn the suit twice in three days. The trousers did need to be ironed, there were a few faint wrinkes, although that had more to do with me not hanging the trousers. If I hung the trousers probably, I reckon the trousers would have been...
I have two, one is Ralph Lauren and the other was a Yoox purchase. Although most patch pocket jackets are probably custom made, I do find options available instore or online.
