Fringe S04E22; William Bell's (Leonard Nimoy) jacket. Recommend anything similar that is purchasable online?

I've been using a dark grey rough-ish spun cotton dress shirt from Mantique as a light "jacket." It's far past falling apart and I look like I collect empty beverage containers for a living, yet I still keep wearing it.
Similar texture to the jacket that William Bell/Leonard Nimoy wore in the recent Fringe episode (poor vidcap
) but much less shiny.
I'm looking for something like that (the piece worn by Nimoy) to use as a light late-spring/summer jacket (I think I like the shiny but can it be pulled off?). I really like how the collar and shoulder are cut, but would prefer straighter (less puffy) sleeves.
In general, is there a "type" or "style" or dress shirt that's ok to double as an outer layer for a tshirt or tank, for a guy?
Is there a term for that kind of clothing? Thickness like a winter dress shirt but cut like a sport coat/blazer/suit-top? (?) Is this an "ok" style or is it really tired already?
