I was afraid to get a response like this! Although I wear suits for a living, I don't know THIS much about suiting or fabric or weights. Am I going to have a tough time with this? I just want something I can wear all year... I'm a jeweler so I'm not going to be doing anything craZy with it, but I don't want to hassle with having to get it pressed or anything, either.
Stay away? If so, go for more 10oz stuff? Any rule of thumb? They have a nice selection of linen and cotton/linen blends that look nice and are apparently a bit heavier - what's the feeling there?
