Greg: I'm really leaning towards the grey version but I noticed that it's all cotton. Can you give a material weight/heft comparison and, if possible, the "breathability" of both? Again as someone who lives in Florida and is an overheater by nature, I spend a lot of time seeking out not only light pieces but ones that breathe well - either the material itself or via the weave. Heck, I've literally "blown through" material to see how well it breathes...
Not that I'm expecting you to get your lips on new jackets and huff-n-puff, but I'd really appreciate your take on how much/little both the blue cotton/linen as well as the gray all cotton are in this regard. Sorry to be so picky on something that isn't worth mentioning in better climates, but here it's beat the humid heat or die.
Oh, almost forgot, are either water repellent and/or resistant?
ps - if you do a grey wearing pic, please do one without the collar popped. It's stylish on you but would look ridiculous on me.
