Your seat tube walls are about 1.4mm thick, which indicates a plain gauge carbon steel frame, rather than anything higher-end or more exotic. A Peugeot PX-10, with the same 28mm seat tube OD you have, takes a 26.4mm seatpost. My two Capos, both full Reynolds 531 and both with 28.6mm seat tube OD, take a 26.4mm seatpost (straight gauge frame) and a 27.2mm seatpost (double-butted frame). I would expect a straight-gauge 531 French frame to take a 26.4-0.6 = 25.8mm seatpost.
