Magee 1866, best price for this smart, well-cut, beautifully tailored pure wool hand-stitched navy suit


Here is our Members’ favourite men’s suit: the ultimate foundation of a gentleman’s wardrobe, the one no well-dressed man can do without: the classic, well-cut, beautifully tailored pure wool navy suit which looks and feels made-to-measure.

We first selected it from Magee in Ireland, 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 cut and detail, their suit is elegant yet comfortable enough to wear everywhere from boardroom to dinner to a wedding or a day at the office.

It is hardly surprising, then, that this suit sells in smart shops in ‘Gentleman’s London – St James’s – for upwards of £430—yet through the Club you can still have it for just £239, saving you about £200.

Not only do Magee create an elegant line, designed to flatter a man’s figure, the cloth for this particular suit is a fine 340g (12oz) smooth and elegant wool, which feels beautifully smooth and makes it the perfect medium-weight suit to wear, and look good, all year round. Ideal for now, 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, and lasting, suit you can buy.

The jacket is a single-breasted, waisted, 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 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, a plain leg, slanted side pockets and belt loops.

Furthermore, you can order different fittings in both jacket and trousers, to achieve the perfect personal fit. Jacket sizes: 38-48in chest in short fitting, 38-52in in regular, 40-48in in long.

Trousers: waist sizes 32-48in, leg lengths 30in (short), 32in (regular) and 34in (long).
