Smith Finmeresco (9oz and 12oz) might have your color. The 12oz is softer than the 10oz Fresco, which might make it more comfortable in heat. YMMV. Also, the Dugdale New Fine Worsted allegedly has a bit of Fresco's twist, with more of the Lesser urbanity. There were some slightly mixed reviews on this thread, but it is still probably worth a look.
That's a little odd, given that they make the 9-10oz Wheat and Sand...
Last fall I got the black 82 Chelseas with that sole. It is very effective.
TWSS.
I tried Dainite for just that reason with some EGs. Didn't take long at all before the spikes got worn down by pavement, which then made the shoes behave like roller skates. Got them resoled with double leather. Now if I get rubber soles, it's the thin flat kind from EG or G&G. You can get those double thickness if you want. Ridgeway could also work, I guess. Last I checked, Vass doesn't offer either one.
Dainite sucks.
Is this for a blazer or a suit? Any season needed? How formal-- does it have to be wool?
I don't think you'll find that one on Amazon.
I saw this book today. The 10oz hopsack looks terrific. Only three colors, but very useful ones. Looks like it would play well in the mid/lightweight Fresco sandbox. Travel suit (or all-day charcoal suit for cool days and stuffy rooms)?
There's a thought.
