Some Dormeuil's nicer items are in the luxury end of the cloth spectrum. They are very good at cashmeres and formal cloths which seem delicate but are more durable than one would suspect. The finish on Dormeuil suit cloth is often very current looking. They make a lot of luxury, super numbers with different colors and patterns because their clientele is very international. Like Scabal, they weave their own cloths and have their own outlet for remnant cloths so they can experiment a lot more than Smiths and Lesser can. Most of the major cloth merchants carry very good quality goods, with the occasional quality or pattern clunker fabric that usually ends up in their "archives". Patterns and fabrics are a matter of taste and some are better for one purpose than another. I would hesitate to condemn a fabric outright because I dont like it, I usually try to figure out objectivley what uses it has before I come to a conclusion. If it's still not for me or I dont feel like spending the money for something with a limited use, I can pass over it without needing to put a stigma on it. Different types of people buy different types of suits for a host of purposes and we cant say that there is a universal standard that others always have to live by. However, there is a standard that we can fail ourselves on.
