I know right off that tweed is an acquired taste. Annoyingly it's a taste I've acquired. Now I'm wondering what is the absolutely heaviest cloth people would say to get stuff made off. I've got some 26 oz stuff but there's an idiot voice in my head that says go heavier.

I know the London tailor Mark Powell has done some stuff that looks almost like serge (saw him out and about in Soho in a lovely light green/blue three piece in what looked like overcoat thick material) but does anyone else?

I'm a scruffy bastard who wears suits so the more hard wearing I can get something the better.

How heavy does it get?

Harris is easily available in 30oz - older jackets/suits sometimes used heavier
