Dormeuil Tonik

Best tonic, or tonik if you prefer, available. Can’t claim to own a suit made with the stuff, that is but a dream at this point. Doesn’t seem to be easy to come by either. Started in 1842 by Jules Dormeuil, the business continuously expanded and in 1956 the company created the fabric it would be famous for. It was the now infamous “Tonik”, a 3 ply mohair blend. The fabric quickly caught on with mods, skinheads and suedeheads and the rest is, as they say, history.
