    I just picked up a Dormeuil Solid Navy tie.
    Very impressive, very thick and substantial, excellent fabric and texture. I just tied it and it holds incredibly. $135 from Despsos Custom Tailoring, so it's a fair price relative to the Borrelli ties I love so.

    Anybody else have any experience with Dormeuil ties.
    Tie one on. Dor-may

    No.

    Any native speakers want to weigh in on how to pronounce this? If I'm wrong about it, then I apologize, but if the above pronunciation is a mistake, I don't want it propagated.

    I don't believe this is right. Everyone in the trade I've ever talked to pronounces it "door-MAY." So did the employees at the now-closed store in New York.

    Ask someone who speaks French to say 'Dormeiul' and I think you'll find that it is a mix of dor-may and dor-moy with eu sound in there.


    It is obviously not an easy translation to English as there seems to be some debate about its correct spoken form.

    --- The main thrust however, is some exceptional ties[​IMG] in some tasteful, classical patterns from what I have seen. Beautiful![​IMG]
