This Thursday: Dormeuil Fabrics & Wingtip Suits

One of the world’s premier fabric mills returns to Bespoke Thursday for their fall trunk show. Dormeuil has existed at the top of the fabric game since 1846, and are revered the world over, from the traditional tailors of Savile Row to the contemporary creatives of Napoli. When you take a fabric from one of Dormeuil’s many books, and use the yards to create an American-made Wingtip suit, you have one of the finest custom offerings available anywhere in the market.

Among the fabrics on offer are a few recent introductions to the Dormeuil line:

  • Iconik Nano (water-repellant Super 120s Australian Merino suiting)
  • Cashmere Towntex (a “fashionable vintage look” that is a wool-and-cashmere update on the original 1960s Towntex line)
  • Jade (the “Talisman” fabric is made from wool treated with jade-infused waters that are said to have relaxing and lucky powers; if nothing else, it’s made from truly beautiful, exceptionally thin Super 160s New Zealand wool)
  • Cashasilk (supremely soft cashmere-silk blends woven into bold jacket styles)
  • Dormeuil visits Wingtip this Thursday, all-day. To schedule a consultation or fitting, please email Walk-ins are welcome.
