I've found lightweight flannels to lose their shape over the course of a workday, and pill quite easily. They often need to be re-pressed after every 5-6 wears (even though I never wear them on consecutive days, or more than 2x a week). As I mentioned, the three that I own are from Fox and Drapers, so the merchants / mills in question are top-notch.

 

My 15oz. Minnis, in contrast, performs admirably.

Wearing Air Force blue Minnis 15oz today!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Have 4 or 5 suits in this cloth and love it! Also have one in the Fox 17oz that keeps it's shape best of all but wear hot as one might imagine.

^ The 17oz. Fox is great - I have two pairs of trousers made up in the light grey, and they are superstars.

How do you guys cope with such heavy cloth do you work in a barn? :) Not sure how I'd cope with the heat in any modern office or commute

Ask your facilities folks to turn down the heat.

I don't wear the coat in my office, and I never feel much on my legs.

Same here.

Anything over 12oz and I'm sweating, any office I go to is fully heated these days, unless your walking in the country side or really feel the cold, I struggle to imagine when to wear 17oz+

Single office, own heater and a window that actually opens smile.gif

I understand in that scenario, save on your heating bills :)

 

In most city offices though, you'll find that the office is heated to the same level all year round (air conditioning), especially in the bigger cities, you'll find most men walking around the offices in mainly just trousers and shirt, jackets and overcoats are mainly for the commute to your car/taxi/tube

Check out Satorforum.

If it's less <100 degrees, cloth should be >16oz.

Sator was an (in)famous SF member, who advocated (very) heavy cloths for every conceivable occasion. He claimed to wear 16oz. suitings to the beach, and purported that heavier cloths were actually more cooling.

Legend.
