Textile. It's going to be somewhat warmer, but there is more fabric to separate you from that which desires to remove flesh from bone.

There is an argument that would suggest that mesh fabrics will permit an even more rapid dehydration from the body because of the additional air moving past your skin. If using mesh, regardless of the time of year, increase your water intake greatly to avoid dehydration. Cooling and dehydration are separated by a very fine line.

These are, of course, all my personal biases and opinions. But the skin is your single largest, and arguably most important organ, can't live without it.
