Wool/Mohair trousers for summer?

I'm searching for a pair of trousers to wear during the summer months. Would a wool and mohair pair be a decent choice, light enough for the hotter months, like these Brooks Brothers pair: http://tinyurl.com/3lcpfv7

Or am I looking at the wrong type of fabrics for the summer?

Thanks!

Raising this thread from the dead.

I have some wool/summer kid mohair trousers (70%/30%) that I recently purchased for a move to warmer climes. I love them, particularly with a nice shirt with the sleeves rolled up, but was wondering about wearing them with sport coats/odd jackets. Color wise I'm fine, but I'm curious about matching them in terms of texture/fabric. They have a slight shine to them, as mohair tends to, though it's not outrageous. Linen seems too informal, seersucker just sounds wrong (I have no seersucker jackets at the moment to compare).....any suggestions for options that might look good in a sport coat for warm weather wear with these trousers?

Perhaps this is why some people have expressed that mohair blends are best left for suits rather than odd jackets or trousers?
