I'm considering the purchase of an off-white Belvest Dupioni silk (100%), double breasted (6 to 2), side vented suit priced at $1875. Â This is an off the peg garment. Surprisingly, I've found little availability of Dupioni silk suits, and was wondering why. Â Oxxford has one such suit with classic Duke of Windsor styling. Â Is anyone familiar with this particular suit? Â Price? Can anyone provide any information on dupioni silk suits, in general? Availability? Suppliers? etc.? Â I'd prefer a MTM, but will settle for RTW, if necessary. Also, Flusser mentions somewhere that high quality dupioni silk is now woven in only one European location, but he does not elaborate where that is. Â Does anyone have the answer to this question? Thank you.
