Is this linen/ summer suit? Blue, or pink, or even white shirt + brown loafers no socks.

Yes, pastel blue or pink. And a lively pocket square that picks up the color of the shirt!

white shirt, light brown suede/nubuck loafers and I like the lively pocket square option above.

I like the pale pink shirt. Linen with a button down collar and no tie. Blue should obviously work fine too, as should lilac. If you're going to wear a white shirt, you need to make it interesting somewhere -- probably a tie, maybe a pocket square and cool sunglasses, something like that.

Black calf tassel loafers, I'd say, but you pretty much can't go wrong. Hell, snuff suede string loafers if you want to dress it down. Black suede chukkas or belgians, if you've been looking for an excuse to get into some black suede.

I feel like it should have patch pockets... oh well.

I would not wear black shoes with a summer suit. Actually I rarely wear black shoes, prefer shades of brown.
