Elegant, hand finished pure wool Irish tweed jacket by master tailors Magee of Donegal: 40in chest, regular fitting
Everything about this beautiful new tweed jacket from Magee in Ireland is elegant, from the flattering cut to the feel of the cloth and the lovely shade of pale meadow brown with wine and lilac overcheck; you can see from the picture what a lovely jacket it is, and the quality feel of it matches the appearance.
Magee are master tailors, specialists in making the finest tweeds since the 1800s and famous worldwide. It is no surprise therefore that we have seen the same jacket in Jermyn Street for over £400: for our Club Members it is less than half that price of course.
Beautifully tailored in smooth pure wool herringbone tweed of a good medium weight (430g or 15oz), it is perfect to wear in town or country: just the jacket to impress the inlaws for Sunday lunc—and to secure the best rooms and tables during country weekends.
The attractive soft meadow brown (like the butterfly after which it is named), with its smart yet subtle overcheck in lilac and wine, also makes it extremely versatile. It looks super with a white or blue shirt, reds, purples and greens, plain or checks, and also with trousers ranging from classic chinos to cavalry twills, moleskins and cords.
Apart from the fine, smooth Irish tweed, what sets this jacket apart is the superb cut, attention to detail in the tailoring, and the hand finishing: hand stitching on the collar—that touch of class which improves the lie of the lapels—on the buttonholes and the lining, all denoting high-quality tailoring.
It is cut in single-breasted, two-button style, with side vents, and has two straight flapped and jetted front pockets, breast welt pocket, lapel buttonhole, four-button sleeves and four interior pockets within the purple silky lining, one buttoned for security.
In 40in chest, regular fitting.
