Are jackets made of heavy cloth usually (or ever) canvassed?

    I have two heavy jackets (flannel and tweed), looks like from decent tailors, but none of them are canvassed. The thing is, I also don't think they are fused - the cloths are so heavy that they have the right shape on their own. Which makes me wonder in general - are jackets made of such heavy cloths ever canvassed, or is there simply no need?
