I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for an army green-ish linen fabric for a summer jacket or suit. Something not too light and bright but not too dark so as to not be summery.

My tailor has access to pretty much any fabric book.

Something like this, but in linen:

if you live in NYC, there is a store on 39th btw 7-8th ave

Quality is Good, not the highest, but priced well.
the lightweight linens do not compare to what is coming out of Italy, or even better Indian mills.

the heavier fabrics are fine for the jacket you are thinking abouot.
You might want to wash and dry their linen before cutting. to soften up the fibers.
