Harrison's remade the 13 oz. and the 8-9 oz. Lessers books a year or so ago, so I don't think there's a shortage of those. Harrison's has said that it's considering remaking the 16 oz book.
I have suits in both the P&B Fine Classics and Minnis Classic, and I think they're both very good. They both drape well, don't wrinkle much, hold a crease, and seem hard wearing. They both have nice sharkskins which are more defined and less smooth than the Lessers 13 oz. I like their look better. See pic below. Lessers on left, P&B on right. On this site, a Harrison's representative talks about the differences between the Lessers and P&B books. http://harrisonsofedinburgh.proboards.com/thread/6
