My $0.02: SB, 1-button, notch lapels, patch pockets, side vents.

I plan to do this for my next sport jacket.

Not sure, but I think those are equestrian trousers.

They are gayer than a velvet jacket.

Also I believe they are a feature more consistent with winter odd jackets in heavier fabric, plaids and stuff. Hence out of season for a linen jacket.

Still considering the peak lapels with patch pockets, though I'll certainly forego hacking pockets and will probably go 2-button and dispense with a ticket pocket as well. Since I have very long arms, I'll go with 4 sleeve buttons. In any event, I'll update the forum on my eventual choice, though it may not happen until I meet with Chan in July. Thanks to all for helping to clarify my thinking.

Winot, thanks also for linking your thread on AAAC. I had somehow missed it.

RLPL has one something like what you are talking about. I saw a navy pinstriped version at Neiman's in Houston last weekend and I was quite taken by it.

Arnys sells those in corduroy and appropriately, velvet.

What about a "tete-a-tete"?

Four-button sleeves is certainly the classic choice, but I'm not sure what the connection between long arms and number of sleeve buttons is. I have pretty long arms, too (35 to 37 shirtsleeves in RTW, depending on the maker and the amount of shrink in the) and I don't think a gapped 2-button sleeve looks any odder for the length. I have a blazer I like very much (Chester Barrie/Harrod's) with that sleeve configuration.

Now, if you think it's an odd idea to begin with, that's a different story.
