One of the more interesting ways to get in some variety is fabric. Modern suits are usually a rather thin, plain fabric, while sport coats are much more interesting, with varied weights, textures, and patterns. In the modern sense, would it make sense to have one suit in a "sportcoat" pattern, or is the idea of pants in such a fabric not really a classic style?

Sports suits are very classic. Just look at the Duke of Windsor. Jacketings are made in looser weaves than suitings are. Because of this, trousers typically won’t hold up well in a jacketing unless the weight is on the more substantial side, like 14 oz or more.

+1.

Done properly, and worn properly for an appropriate occasion it's a handsome but more relaxed choice.
