Thoughts on an odd jacket in black linen? I know black worsted odd jackets are verboten, but I think a rumply linen coat with 3 patch pockets may look quite smart.

I think that could work. The harder question is whether it would work better than other choices.
Any black linen item that I have ever seen has looked absolutely awful. The thought of a black linen jacket makes me cringe because either you get a jet black piece of linen, which I think looks silly wearing in the summer/daytime or you get one of those faded color linens which will make the jacket look like an old version of a black jacket. I'd get dark green, maroon/brick, a nice peach/light red before black. If you hate the colors that you don't have, I would consider getting the colors you have in DB version if you feel you need more linen jackets.
