That blue linen/silk blend could work for a man, depending on the weave and shade. I used to have a double-breasted sport coat made of sky blue chambray. It was nice in the summer, but not very versatile. I only wore it with white or off-white pants, incl. jeans. Here's a pic of me in it a few years ago at a party at Self Edge:

Jefferyd more recently posted a gorgeous version he made for himself too.
