This is what I have in The Encyclopedia of Men's Clothes:
Fabric weight for suits is measured in ounces per linear yard (36" x 60") of fabric.

Tropical weights (6.5 to 8.5 oz.) are comfortable for summer wear.

Mid-weight suits (9 to 10 oz.) are designated "year round" or favored for 10-month wear.

Regular weight (11 to 13 oz.) is appropriate for fall and winter.

Heavy weight (14 to 16 ounce) provides extra warmth but is most appropriate for winter in Scotland.
