    The 22 ounce jackets are warm enough for me...

    That's pretty heavy; far more so that I can tolerate! Lovely looking fabrics though. I think the Gregor would look great as a suit, and the Orion as an odd jacket. The Dillon houndstooth is surely at least topcoat-weight though! You must have the circulation of your namesake woolly forebears, or at least live in a similar climate. [​IMG]

    I tend to top out at about 14oz, largely because England is a temperate land and many locations I have to visit here in winter have the central heating cranked up so anything heavier rapidly becomes soul-destroyingly hot. But I do tend to be out & around enough (including visiting some unheated locations) to justify having a large range of overcoats and scarfs to cope with any ambient cold. I find layering up rather than having a single heavy layer more comfortable & practical here.

    Are you sure these are from the Apparel side of Holland & Sherry and not the Interior Division? I question this due to the unusual width of the cloth.

    If they're warm enough for a woolly mammoth...

    I believe you are correct that it is from the Interior Division...not sure how the book ended up in my office; I thought it was for super-heavy-duty jackets...it is pretty heavy cloth.

    I showed the following jacket to a friend and the next day the H&S book arrived...maybe he thought I was a chair.
