Of all the suits I own, I do not own a silk dupioni suit but I have always been fascinated by the possibility. I have considered the purchase on many occasions, but my tailor assures me the suit will be ruined if stained. And considering the cost to own such as garment, I have stayed away from the purchase thus far. However, the silk dupioni still remains one of my most coveted items, and I intend to purchase one before I die regardless of what my tailor says. Prince Charles is featured here wearing a beautiful dupioni, and the Duke was quite fond of the silk fabric as well.
