While I have access to most fabrics including Zegna, Loro Piana, Scabal, and more…my favorite premium custom clothing fabric for suits and sport coats is Dormeuil. There are three fabric collections that should be considered by any serious custom clothing customer for spring/summer ideas. These are Dormeuil’s newest creation- Aquaplan, their staple- Amadeus 365, and their super lightweight Tropical.
AQUAPLAN- Dormeuil’s NanoTechnology solution to your stain/light rain shower issues…Aquaplan is a 7.5 oz. special 220 gram tropical cloth designed for spring/summer with nano-technology features.
Each fiber is treated, then woven…creating a fabric that naturally breaths…but that is water and stain resistant! Even a light colored suit like the one above, will make it through a spill of your favorite Merlot…unscathed! And if you get caught in a light rain storm…the water will run off your shoulders even if you’ve forgotten your rain coat!
This will be one of your lightest feeling suits! It is Amadeus’ best selling cloth in China, where discriminating fashion tastes and lighter fabrics abound. Tropical Amadeus will perform in any heat while being one of the lightest in your closet. This is a “flat weave” but one with lots of character.
This is their fiercely protected finishing process which imparts a unique clarity and richness to each of their patterns. An 8.5oz fabric, Amadeus 365 is a twill weave that is perfect for all seasons!
This Amadeus 365 sport coat looks terrific with a pair of black Amadeus Aquaplan black twill custom trousers, a custom mini-stripe lavender shirt with a hand-made charcoal/purple paisley tie!
Perhaps the strongest selling point to be made for Dormeuil fabrics is their exclusivity! Except for solids, Dormeuil makes only four 70-yard pieces per pattern…that means each of their fabrics will be found in only 70 jackets…worldwide!
