For under-layers, or even linings, the 3.5 oz should do you quite fine;
I have some heavier linens I wear during warm weather when I'm wearing
only one layer, probably on the order of 5 oz (I once made a conversion
table between oz and mm, but have since misplaced it; maybe I'll have
to do it from scratch again), which works fine for that.
