Summer Dinner Jacket

I just attended a formal event and there are suddenly a lot more white/off-white/ivory DJ being worn up here in the high country. I feel left out.
I'd assume SBPL one button with besom pockets is still a given, but how heavy a fabric and in what color? Given a couple of hours outside before sunset and summer temperatures is this one time a blend might be a blessing?

While peaked lapels are perfectly acceptable, the more casual effect of the shawl collar is ideally suited to this less formal jacket. Traditionally, the collars are self facing meaning that they are covered in the same fabric as the rest of the jacket.


Unlined, lightweight natural fabrics are acceptable alternatives to the standard worsted wool. This includes cotton, gabardine and linen.
