I like the olive poplin. I actually like a blend, as I have found the all-cotton suits to actually be rather warm, even more so that some of my lighter weight wool suits.

I have a Super 150 bespoke (from HK) khaki wool suit which is OK (warmth/coolness-wise) and a 50-50 linen-cotton-blend suit (3/8ths lined, but fused) which is disappointingly warm. My brother just gave me a Brooks Brothers stone "poplin" suit that is a poly-cotton blend. I haven't worn it yet; when I remarked to him that it seemed like the polyester might make it warm and less breathable, he claimed that that was not his experience.
