The strict name for this unit is the avoirdupois ounce and in SI / metric terms it is equivalent to approximately 28.3g.

Ounces are used to indicate the weight of fabrics in Asia, the UK and North America. For example, 16 oz denim. The number refers to weight of the fabric in ounces.

The ounce was no longer seen as a legal unit of measure after the year 2000 in the UK. However, it is still used informally and is also used as the measure for portion sizes in restaurants in the UK.
