Specific material for Guzma jacket/pants?

I'm currently working on a cosplay of Guzma from Pokemon Sun and Moon, and I am trying to figure out what sort of material his outfit is made of. I don't have a high enough skill level to make it from scratch, and was planning to modify a cotton/polyester jacket and pair of sweatpants that I bought. They are a bit too warm to wear indoors however (who wears sweats in Alola, anyhow?) so I was hoping to find a lighter, more sporty material (maybe moisture wicking?) that would be cooler and likely more accurate to what Guzma is wearing. Any suggestions?

Here's a character reference for those who are unfamiliar:

If any of you have any suggestions regarding the type of material I should use for the patterns and skull logo on his outfit, that would be greatly appreciated as well!

the problem with "moisture wicking"
is that the material needs to be against your skin
so that leaves only the undershirt in this case as possible use of moisture wicking

as for the rest, if you can find a really lightweight cotton/rayon blend
its really nice, i have a couple old "hawaian" shirts made by northcrest
thier a 55/45 blend, and is the lightest shirts ive ever owned
and you cant "see through" it under any light condition

only downside is, it wrinkles like a mofo, so ocasional ironing is reccomended

instead of fleece sweats why not look for the nylon kind? I think it would translate to that material just as easily.
