 Obviously you don't want something too heavy, but I'd concentrate more upon the weave than upon the weight. I actually prefer cloth that's a bit heavier but with an open, more porous weave, over cloth that is very light and thin but which is tightly woven.  Look for something in a "tropical" wool in about a 280g (9oz) weight. A lot of J&J Minnis's "fresco" cloth comes in at about that weight.

 I think that PP earlier said that it will be $75 for 30mL plus postage.
This should be required reading for all of us on SF, even though it falls into the category of "somewhat obvious news":   http://online.wsj.com/articles/can-money-buy-happiness-heres-what-science-has-to-say-1415569538?mod=e2tw   The TL/DR version - In short, experiences bring greater satisfaction than buying things.

  Surely @Coxsackie can be persuaded to join in? Anyone else interested?
 Any more news on the proposed AA decant?
I put on some of my Tuscan Leather (also courtesy of PetePan) this morning and my wife sniffed and said, "Did you get caught in a fire at a Chesterfield sofa factory?"   The initially, smoky scent is surprisingly strong but after a short while it settles down nicely and the other scents start to come through.
 It's just decoration, like the multiple bead bracelets that #menswear people stack on their wrists next to their Rolex GMT, Panerai or AP RO. I've seen some people with chains (some of The Armoury guys have done that) and I've seen others with plaited, thin, leather straps with a little leather ball at the end.
 The thing that I like most about it is that he is well-dressed and that everything fits well. It's got some flair but, at the same time, nothing looks too tight and he doesn't (at least as far as we can see) have ten bangles/bracelets on one wrist, nor does he have a little cord hanging down from his lapel buttonhole. He's got style, but it's restrained style rather than the stuff that we too often see splashed over Tumblr/Instagram.   You're a management consultant,...
