Nice suit, Victor. Good loot?

Not really ... Only a couple of gold bars, a box of ducats, and a bit of piastres.

^ My best suggestion is stick to linen or silk tussah in solids but with some variegated weave -- blues, tans, browns, etc. Patterns usually look too contrived and tableclothey.
 

Edit: some linen patterns used in jacketings (micro houndstooth, small glen check) can be repurposed for this as well.

 

And 100% cotton is generally a pain in the ass to tie and feels gross.

Linen or Shantung.

Mogador as well. Also, light silk foulard with more colourful prints.
