8/9oz high twist wool in plain weave.
I'm doing a special run of Minnis Rangoon (8/9oz tropical worsted that was discontinued a few years ago) in a navy shade that's perfect for a go-to business suit. It's the same shade of navy as 0579 in the Fresco 2 bunch (see photo). Please PM if you are interested. Thanks.
T-shirt and shorts 😳
Minnis Classic 2 has some hopsacks and serge in 11/12 oz that are very good.
Fresco is a summer cloth and such cloths are usually done in a plain weave. Herringbone is a type of twill weave and it wears warmer so it is not used in summer cloths.However, I have seen plain weave done in shadow stripes that mimics the look of a herringbone cloth. You get the "vertical bands" without the diagonal lines.
Mohair wears cooler than wool in the same weight and weave.
It's very similar to a peacoat but was issued to ground troops. I like this iteration with storm collar and large pocket flaps.
