The one on top looks like it's a mix of darker and lighter yarns? I think that works well, along with the mohair, for a kind of luster in lower light...like what's in ethandesu's suit in the link. The idea is to recreate some of the kind of lighter "glow" that comes off of a velvet jacket, without having to wear velvet in the summer. If it's darker without the lighter accents, that's harder to achieve, and starts to look more like an orphaned tux jacket.
