    Looking to buy a tweed 3 piece for my wedding, budget between $1000-1500. Any suggestions on where to buy from? I've been looking for quite some time and see haven't found many. A local tailor can make one but all the fabric available is around 10-11oz, thought about something a little heavier for the northern winter.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Looking for something like this. Anyone have an idea what weight fabric it would be? Local tailor has a lot of 10/11 oz tweed fabric available to order but it feels thin to me.

    I think there really is lightweight tweed but for me, tweed starts at 400 g/m². For your photo, I would guess in the 400-650 range.
