For a vintage rider, not a wall hanger, my go to hoops are the Weinmann concave offering. They come in 27" and two 700c widths. I recently dropped the 27 inch wheels on my Legnano for a set of 700c concaves and I love them. The best advice I can give is switch to the 700c version. The hoops are a bit heavier but make up for it in the durability arena. By going to the 700c version, you will have a wider variety of tires to choose from and you can achieve a bit of weight savings in that area.
