do you think hopsack would look odd in winter? Like linen in winter

Winter weight hopsack:

 

 

Mind you, it's still chilly when it gets windy...

Well the hopsack I'm looking at is 10z. But I'm not interested in if I will feel cold in winter ( I won't t) but if the hopsack will look too "summery" . Like wearing linen in winter. It looks odd.

10oz is way too light and will indeed look silly. I would guess the cloth of my jacket is around 13 to 15 oz or so (sorry, I do metric system...)
I think it's perfect for mild winters: plenty of texture but not too hot.

Noodles, you can use shoe polish on your belt as long as you do not mind it rubbing off on your pants, shirt and jacket.  Otherwise, stick with a cleaner/conditioner like Bick 4 or Renovateur.

I'd use a neutral polish as well for belts.

Hate to lose a good belt when it has a chance to be saved.

Solution: stop wearing belts and start getting trousers with side adjusters. You'll save money on never having to buy belts ever again, and it looks much better with your CBD outfits.

At the moment I don't have a wardrobe where I can choose between summer jackets and winter jackets so I'm looking for a jacket I could wear in the hot summer ( 90+F) and in winter ( as I said 60F). But I'm looking for a jacket especially suited for summer. 10oz might be too light but 15oz is probably too heavy. I don't know if my tailor has a hopsack heavier than 10oz, I will ask him.

For those of you interested, there is a GMTO going on with Skoaktie Bolaget for this burgundy calf split toe on the Rain last.  Beautiful shoe and great bang for the buck with the current strength of the dollar.

I don't know why you guys hate belts, I love them, even when I don't need them.
