Have you touched it, how do you know about the texture? And are textures in America different from where you are?

Texture can be visual as well. OP, it looks like it could be corduroy. Funnily enough, I just watched this last week and noticed the wardrobes as well. When I wasn't watching Violante of course.

I don't like the collar gap. Anybody see Hall Pass? Some nice sport coats in it.

That's much better.

Looks like a nailhead flannel.

I believe the name of the movie from which the screenshot is taken is "the American"

As mentioned in this article, the suits/coats in the film for Clooney were made by Zegna. I have a cashco (cotton and cashmere : soft, velvet-like) Zegna coat with a similar texture, like this one sold by aportnoy
