Testudo, do you know of any cavalry twills out there in the 15oz range that have heavy, pronounced twill lines? The one above from Huddersfield is a little too fine for me, I would like more texture.
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.
^^ Steed coat looks great, other one not so much.
I have three suitings that I need to move, not wearing suits much due to change of jobs. Mid gray fresco 0511, Flannel 0328 and Sharkskin, all are Minnis and 4 meters. Please pm if you want any one of these.
I haven't any so far. But here on out, that is my limit.

Didn't you say you had sweat gland issues... Be careful with the 16oz...
I have started to organize my acqiusitions into 11 oz and below vs 13 oz and above. The lighter weights I tend to make SB, the heavier tend to be DB. I think I'll make the 16 oz as a DB. Hopefully it won't be a mistake.
