I'm still fine in ~21oz tweeds indoors. I wouldn't layer knitwear under it, but I'm comfortable with the jacket and a collared shirt.
If you have the swatches in front of you, you probably know that Glenroyal is a smoother, softer tweed. It's sturdy, but it doesn't have the same springy-ness and coarseness of Harris. I suppose Harris a bit more like Shetland tweeds in that sense. Style wise, I think Andy is right that those sort of springy tweeds can look bulky when made up.

So many dead links now ...
Harris 520156 is nice. I like it better than the Glenroyal, personally. It's a larger scale herringbone.For Scabal, you should just contact your tailor. If he or she has an account with them, it shouldn't be something you have to track down.
Manton is also the one who started the Donald Trump thread in CE. So ... Illuminati?
