Epitome of style: well-cut elegant ‘black tie’ gentlemen’s dinner suit with silk facings, beautifully tailored in pure wool by Magee of Donegal: the jacket
The ‘black tie’ dinner suit is the classic formal dress to make a man look debonair. As Dean Martin said, ‘In a tuxedo, I’m a star. In regular clothes, I’m nobody.’ So we are delighted to announce the arrival of the new pure wool dinner suit from Magee.
This, the foundation of a gentleman’s formal wardrobe, sells for £500 or more in ‘Gentleman’s London’, and no wonder. The finer details include the beautiful 250g pure wool cloth, the fine hand stitching, and the long-lasting structure. The trousers are half-lined for a better drape and longer wear, and they have a smart flat front. This suit hangs beautifully—you will look a million dollars!
It is well cut and tailored in a classically elegant yet modern single-breasted style, with satin-covered single button fastening, two side vents, satin lapel facings and satin lining with inside pockets. The trousers are single pleat. You can also order a matching waistcoat. And of course the accessories: pure cotton evening shirt, silk bow tie, cummerbund and pocket square.
All in all, this fine suit looks and feels made to measure.
The jacket comes in 36-52in chest in regular, short and long fittings.
Retail price £305. CCUK Members £197 including UK mainland delivery.
