    thanks, not that heavy, about 16oz or so. How people can wear 17-18oz cloths as suits is mindboggling to me


    a lot

    :) Mine (I have one... can you say that on SF?) is 14oz.. Bit of a rooky mistake, but the coat still works for me. I wouldn´t mind 17-18oz though.

    Someone was asking to see the Minnis 0500?
    I decided not to make this one up. (see sig #spam#) Too chilly in SF.

    I, of course, came to realize this after already commissioning a suit in the 520.

    Oh, I love it. But, didn't think it would be practical for me. Binge said I should have it made for an "LA suit".
    But, I'm only there a few times a year now and I'm usually wearing a wetsuit.
