Anyone got experience with one of these? Dormeuil Guanashina "Dormeuil are proud to announce, after many years of research, combined with travel to distant lands in search of the most exotic fibres, a completely new concept in luxury fabric – Guanashina. Guanashina – a blend of three precious and rare fibres expressing the ultimate essence of luxury. Once in a lifetime, a cloth is created which is so unique, so inimitable, so peerless, that it transcends any superlative used to describe it. Never in the history of luxury fabrics has such a creation ever been contemplated, let alone achieved. The story of the three fibres is, in itself, a tale encompassing traditions and cultures, from the uplands of Ladakh on the Roof of the World in northern India, to the deserts of inner Mongolia, and the Andes Mountains of Peru. -Kid Pashmina – fleece exclusively from the underbelly of the kid Pashmina goat – jealously guarded by the Moguls for its silky softness and reserved for members of the Royal Family. Dark tales are told of those who ignored the warning. -Baby Cashmere – The finest goats are bred only in inner Mongolia. The ancient Chinese guarded their secret well - to achieve the maximum length of fibre the baby animal is combed only once for its soft under-fleece when it is a year and a half old. -Guanaco – since time immemorial used for coronation robes of the Royal Incas symbolising their majesty and power. A member of the llama family, today the Guanaco is herded by nomads on the high plateaux of the Andes Mountains. Only the hair of the young animal – Chulengo – is selected. These, then, are the elements of Guanashina. Combine the elements with fine clothmakers’ skills, skills honed to perfection over centuries of practice in England, and “the most luxurious cloth in the world” – Guanashina. – is created. A cloth of unsurpassed natural beauty, suppleness, and warmth. Although great care is taken to obtain the purest of raw materials, only about 30% of the fibres will be selected for their length and fineness. This judicious selection means that only fabric, for less than two hundred garments world wide, will be produced." Scabal Diamond Chip "Perhaps men are not so easily seduced by jewellery, but they will certainly appreciate this tailor-made gem of a suit. For all the men out there who insist upon a “Rolls Royce” suit, Scabal has designed a cloth which incorporates diamond fragments. This new fabric range, which has been christened “Diamond Chip”, comes in a variety of patterns and colours. Anyone who mentions luxury suits, automatically thinks of Scabal. Constantly striving for innovation, Scabal created in 2001 the first cloth containing diamond fragments, entitled“Diamond Chip”. This involved a great deal of research and development. After all, it was not Scabal's intention to design a museum piece, but instead to design a cloth that could be turned easily into a stylish and elegant suit. The diamond chips are processed into the cloth as soon as the wool has been cleaned and combed. Microscopically small diamond fragments are then spread on the wool, and it is only then that the wool is spun. The result is a shiny thread to be woven into exceptional fabrics. The latter not only shine literally and figuratively, but they also feel comfortable and hang beautifully. Scabal never sacrifices comfort for the sake of beauty. The success of the launch in 2001 exceeded all expectations. In view of the immense demand, Scabal has now decided to develop another brand-new fabric range on this theme. The new 2007 “Diamond Chip” range comprises no less than 23 different patterns and colours; the largest collection ever. The cloth consists of a Super 150's wool (80 %) – into which diamond fragments have been processed – and pure silk (20 %). Once again, the cloth is being woven at Scabal's own weaving-mill in Huddersfield (UK). The subtle grey, brown, and blue tints, the woven stripy patterns and the semi-plain patterns do perfect justice to the sparkling diamonds. Ideal for men who like celebrating in sheer luxury. The 2007 “Diamond Chip” collection is available at all luxury menswear stores in the 65 countries where Scabal has a presence. The fabric is packaged as befits a true jewel, that is to say, in a luxury box with its own “Diamond Chip” fabric label. The quallity guarantee statement “Scabal – Super 150's – Silk with diamond fragments – made in England” is woven into the selvedge of the fabric. The fabric is 150 cm wide and weighs 260 grammes/metre."
