Ireland’s Tallest Man candidate Brendan MacCallister wears Tom Murphy bespoke on the Late Late Show.

Back in the early 80’s after of a year of trawling through candidates it was cut down to 3 candidates, who all stood at 7 feet and over. The three appeared on the late late show and we had the honor of kitting out Brendan McAllister in a bespoke suit for the occasion. As Brendan was 7 feet tall we had no choice but to commission a specifically tailored 2 piece suit spun and woven in a cloth by Magee of Donegal . Our resident tailoring experts Michael and Tom Crowley were commissioned to produce a suit for Brendan on the big night.
After the initial measurement process there was a 5 week turnaround and Brendan was invited back into the shop for his second fitting. Michael and Tom admit to being nervous as Brendan tried on the suit but lo and behold it was the perfect fit and they were all thrilled with the result.
Gay Byrne was gushing in his praise for the immaculately dressed gentlemen and Brendan, who is originally from Cobh, looked resplendent in his threads, which he says still hang proudly in his wardrobe. Alas he did not go onto win the competition but he placed 2nd. If there was a prize for the best dressed giant needless to say he would have walked off with it.
