I think from now on I am only going to buy super heavy cloth, or open weaves. None of this four season silliness.

16oz, or 9/10oz open weave. I will accept nothing in between.

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.

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.

That's a pretty good way to do it.

Which 16oz have you made up? I have a length of 16oz Lesser sharkskin waiting in queue.

I haven't any so far. But here on out, that is my limit.

Birdseye. Pretty much any worsted suit book would contain a number of these.

I think 13oz is optimal.

Didn't you say you had sweat gland issues... Be careful with the 16oz...

I have a line on some Dugdales linen and want to know is an 8/9oz Linen decent enough for a summer suit? Not sure what color to get, either sand, blue, gray, or steel blue...
post #3089 of 11386
I have one (not by Dugdale) 9 oz linen. It wrinkles a lot. I'd go at least 12 oz, if possible. All the colors you list are great for a linen suit.

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.
