I'm curious about whether the basic construction should change to keep it breathable and reasonably cool. In other words, is full-canvas the best construction for a summer-weight jacket, or is it better to move to half-canvas? Should the jacket be fully-lined or half-lined? Any other structural changes to consider to keep it breathable and appropriate for summer? I plan to use tropical-weight wool fabric.
I started thinking about a change in construction based on the description of this Crombie jacket: https://www.crombie.co.uk/mens/navy-hopsack-wool-half-lined-summer-blazer-ss15.html.
Thanks for any insights.
