Finest Medium/Heavy Weight Wool for Ultimate Navy Blazer,...

I have my own opinion but with access to a wealth of experiences I thought I would put it out to the membership.

I admit one of my obsessions is my selection of Navy Blazers or Sport Jackets. I have Oxxford 1220 x 2 with navy buttons, Oxxford highest quality with custom nickel buttons and one with navy buttons. I have another that was made in he U.K. many years ago that still has some wear left in it but,...

I am going to have another one made with metal buttons of some sort. I do not want a light weight cloth for this one. I have looked at Harrison's and all Porter and Harding lines. Holland and Sherry, although I must admit that it annoys me that they do not list the weight expressed in either grams or ounces for their fabric.

I was overwhelmed looking through Dormeuil,....

If anyone has personal experience and cares to share I would appreciate your view on what fabric you would choose for your ultimate Navy Blazer.

Thank you,

I would try out a heavier weight Minnis fresco, unlined blazer. Should be very airy and cool wearing, but it should provide drape, unlined should theoretically make it even airier.

Also, Styleforum's Classic Menswear subforum has a great big cloth thread you might want to check out, and ask them as well.
