Just to note that this really is a very versatile fabric and doesn't actually feel that 'heavy', especially compared to some scratchy Harris tweed. I have a Harris around 450 g/m which is still very versatile (UK) but this 545 g/m feels just as 'cool' and perhaps a touch more breathable.
Obviously it does depend on climate, but don't be put off by the weight. It's really very breathable when it needs to be. And of course, it is VERY beautiful and unique too.
