That's a tough one, Svenn, if the texture of the 20 oz Dugdale isn't enough. Generally, I think mills finish the twills so that the texture is smoother and finer as the weight decreases. Judging from internet photos, that certainly seems true of H&S's Dakota Plains cavalries or John G. Hardy's 12 oz cavalries. They look smoother and finer than my Dugdale 20 oz. Have you seen H. E. Box's cavalry twills? They're mostly heavy, but they have one 18 oz. navy.
