Summer Suit - Style & Fabric

I am about to buy a summer suit in a khaki/tan color. I am looking for some help on the following things:

1) Thomas Fisher Fabrics - Can someone tell me their quality and what the questions I should ask? Are they good? I am not looking for a "you should buy Loro Piana instead" because I don't have that choice. I have yet to hear or read anything bad about them

2) Kid Mohair blend (70%wool/30%Mohair) vs Other options - I look to wear the suit to weddings and parties during the summer, this will not be for work.

3) Style choices - are there any do's and don't for a progressive summer suit? For example, Peak lapel vs Nothced? ticket pocket or not? Slanted vs flat pocket? Cuffs or straight pants?

4) What is best color or shade of the tan/khaki? I tend to think I look better in the lighter fabrics, but am curious as to how they are perceived.

Any links to pictures or advice is greatly appreciated.
