Woolmark & Saks announce Fabric No.1 award winners
Sep '13
In partnership with The Woolmark Company, Saks Fifth Avenue announces Dormeuil and Fratelli Tallia di Delfino as the winners of the second annual Fabric No. 1 award, a prestigious prize that commends the season's finest fabrics for Made-to-Measure suits and sport coats from the world's premiere textile mills.
To qualify, each mill was invited to submit the top three fabrics from its fall collection. Tom Ott, SVP GMM Saks Fifth Avenue Men's Home and Gifts, led a select panel of Made-to-Measure experts from Saks Fifth Avenue and The Woolmark Company, who examined and voted on the submissions. 
The two winning mills - Dormeuil, selected for suiting, and Fratelli Tallia di Delfino, selected for sport coats - will be honored at a special award ceremony on Thursday, September 19 at Saks Fifth Avenue's New York flagship store to kick off the semi-annual Men's Luxury event (which focuses on Saks' Made-to-Measure assortment).
Individually tailored to its owner by Saks Fifth Avenue's master craftsmen, each Fabric No. 1 piece will be identifiable by a custom number and label, marking it as a one-of-a-kind garment. The Fabric No. 1 program will be supported by window displays in Saks' flagship store, a spread in Saks' Men's Fall Fashion Catalog, advertising in the Wall Street Journal and promotion on Saks' social media platforms. Fabric No. 1 Made-to-Measure orders will be available in limited quantities at Saks Fifth Avenue locations in New York, Chevy Chase, Chicago and Phoenix.
This year's esteemed Fabric No. 1 Award winners:
Dormeuil: Winner in Suiting
Woven in England, this winning fabric's pure long filament Super 150's worsted wool has the enigmatic name: 15 point 8. The name refers to the very fine diameter of the fiber used (a mere 15.8 microns) to create a fine, soft fabric perfectly suited for wearing every season of the year. 
The extraordinarily soft handle is further enhanced by the special 2/120 compact yarn used in both the warp and the weft. The compact yarn is woven in an extremely tight British setting, which gives unequalled quality, regularity and performance for such a fine fabric. Dormeuil's exclusive finishing process is applied to create a lustrous soft handle. This fabric is 100 per cent wool and available exclusively at Saks Fifth Ave as a limited-edition, individually numbered, two-piece Made-to-Measure suit.
Fratelli Tallia di Delfino: Winner in Jacketing
Woven in Italy, this winning fabric is the perfect blend of fine pure new wool and cashmere of the finest grade. Carefully selected raw materials, an old fashioned yet contemporary woolen spun production cycle along with meticulous weaving grant thiscloth its deep, rich colors and an extremely soft, lofty handle. This beautiful fabric is 90 per cent wool and 10 per cent cashmere, which is the result of Fratelli Tallia di Delfino's continuous effort to blend its centenary tradition with today's state-of-the-art technical and stylistic innovation.
