Not sure if my reply is still pertinent in this age when everything is moving fast. But LP has some nice cotton blends in their Mare book: https://hallmadden.com/loro-piana-mare/Silk, wool and linen are often blended in summer jacketing. Blending with cotton is more unusual.
This might be something for Solbiati, but they and their parent Loro Piana do not have good online presentations. The Solbiati website does offer a guide to their bunches, however.
The best online presentation of contemporary summer jacketing is from the Neapolitan cloth merchant Ariston.
- 'Softime' at the page top which is a cotton-wool-silk blend, in a slubby plain weave that looks pretty similar to the 'Summertime' wool-silk-linen, but I imagine the cotton properties would dominate, so it rumples and moulds to your body shape
- Towards the bottom of the page are some pure cotton or with minimal EA blended
