Where I live, temperature is cold but not freeing (no snow). I like to know the best material. The store I'm looking at has jackets available in the following materials:
Satin
Cotton - 100% light, medium, 100% fine, heavy weight, polyester, spandex light or spandex medium
Cotton Silk
Spandex - cotton silk, polyester
Linen/Linen Poly
Silk - japanese, 100% raw, hoi an, linen, vietnamese

In case you're wondering, this retail specializes in martial-arts clothing. Suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!

We don't get really cold weather here. On the coldest days, which might get below freezing at night but still no snow, I wear a leather jacket. Other days I just wear a light weight cotton hoodie.

Ounce for ounce, silk is warmer than other fibers. Whatever mix has the most silk percentage will be best.

I don' think any of the fabrics listed by the OP are known for warmth. I think wool is the best fabric for warmth.

^^^ Yup, wool or down insulated nylon. I do have two fleece lined hoodies that are very warm and might b suitable for Texas winters.
