Fox Brothers fabric for versatile suit—City, Air, Golden?

I'm trying to select a fabric for a MTM Vestrucci suit. I have liked Fox fabrics in the past so I ordered a selection of samples. It's going to be some variation on navy, but I'm trying to decide between their various bunches.

The occasion for the suit is my wedding in NYC in August, but I'd like this also to serve as a general, 3-season suit. I tend to sweat a lot, so I'm drawn to the Fox Air fabric, but am wondering as well if the City fabric might also work. Holding the three bunches up to the light it looks like the Air is most open-weave, followed by City and Golden Fox. Does anyone have experience with suits made from any of these? I wonder if City would be a good compromise—a bit more formal than the Air, and maybe less see through (hoping to do the suit half-lined) but still open enough to work for the summer?

I have both Fox Air and Golden Fox jackets. Fox Air feels coarser than Fox City. Golden Fox might be too thin for trousers.
I believe Fox City was created for a slightly smoother hand feel than Fox Air and more "suited" as a suit.
Both are very comparable as you've known. Go with the specific fabric that attracts you.

Golden is generally lighter than city, weight wise, and Golden i think looks "tighter"."

I personally love City, think its a great book.
