Here is the ultimate foundation of the gentleman’s wardrobe, the one that no well-dressed man can do without: the classic, well-cut, pure wool navy suit which looks and feels made-to-measure. We selected it from Magee of Donegal, renowned tailors since the 1800s, because their cut, line and balance are second to none, the cloth they weave is beautiful, and with their hand finishing and attention to detail, their suit is elegant yet comfortable enough to wear everywhere from boardroom to dinner to a day at the office.
It is hardly surprising, then, that this suit sells in smart shops in London’s St James’s for upwards of £500. Not only do Magee create an elegant line, designed to flatter a man’s figure, the cloth for this particular suit is 340g (12oz) smooth pure wool, which is hard wearing and makes it the perfect medium-weight suit to wear, and look good, all year. Ideal for the city, it is fully lined and comfortably warm enough for air-conditioned offices and in a stiff breeze too. With all this, and its attractive plain dark navy colour which goes with most shirt and tie combinations, it will be the most versatile suit you can buy.
The jacket is a single-breasted two-button style with two side vents, hand-stitched lapels and working lapel buttonhole. The front pockets are straight, flapped and jetted, and the breast pocket is elegantly angled. The hand-stitched silky blue lining holds four interior pockets, one buttoned for valuables.
The smart matching trousers are half lined to give a better drape, they have a plain front which suits a slim figure, a plain leg, slanted side pockets and belt loops. Furthermore, you can order different fittings in the jacket and trousers, to achieve the perfect fit.
These trousers are excellent worn as separates with knitwear and jackets. When buying with a suit, it is a good idea to order two pairs of trousers to lengthen the life of the suit.
