Gents. I am doing a special run of Minnis Rangoon 8-9oz tropical worsted. This is a grey nailhead pattern that is the same shade as the mid grey sharkskin Harrisons Oyster 75762 (the middle grey of the three shades of sharkskin from the Oyster bunch). Price is USD60/m plus shipping. Self pick up in HK is fine. Please PM if you are interested. Thanks.

I'd say it wears well in winter and is perfect for layering for those who travel a lot. I had mine done with 1/4 lining and lined sleeves. It took some breaking in and has little give, so make sure you get it properly fitted by your tailor.The Minnis version is around 15 oz and still being offered in a few...
