Do a quick search on Minnis rangoon - a fantastic light weight wool which wears cool. It is being discontinued and is being sold for peanuts. I am now the proud possessor of a good suit length suitable for a suit plus extra trousers and a waistcoat if I so desire. Total cost - about $175

Is Mohair not something you'd be interested in? It does tend to breathe well, but can also have some luster. That being said the Minnis shown looks nice, and scabal has some great fabrics in the 7 to 7.5 oz range that range from super 120's to 150's two-ply in their Highlights bunch, but it does cost quite a bit more. Silk will not be a good lining for you, it won't breathe. A bemberg skeleton lined jacket would be a nice option.
