I need to add several lightweight jackets to my wardrobe, so I've been thinking about having a linen jacket made. I truly like one-button, peak lapel styling and I'm considering this style in cream or tan linen, with side vents, a ticket pocket, and hacking pockets. Since linen is inherently casual, would this styling be too much of a mongrel to look good? Keep in mind that I would select a fabric with enough texture to avoid its being mistaken for a dinner jacket. Of course, a conservative, consistent styling option would be 2-button jacket with notch lapels, patch and flap hip pockets, and patch breast pocket, but why not be adventurous? Also, what other options are available for lightweight jackets, keeping in mind that I'm not a big fan of seersucker (vertical stripes on tall, thin guys don't look great). What is the collective wisdom of the forum? I'd like to know your opinions.
