Sean Og O hailpin popped in over the Christmas period to organize suits for his wedding and we were thrilled to deck the iconic legend and his brothers out in Gibson London black tuxedos.The lads were unbelievably nice and it was an absolute pleasure looking after them.The only issue was there was a fair amount of tailoring required for Aisake and Setanta!The day they were in the store there were lots of admiring glances from the female customers and one lady was heard muttering”they look even better in their tuxes than in their Cork gear”.

The groom and groomsmen chose a beautiful gibson london tuxedo with a peaked lapel and one silk covered button.The suit is a slim fit and suits anybody with an athletic frame.Often tuxedos come in a more classic style but this one is different-it fits so well and is really appealing to the fashion concious.

Sean Og-Cork Legend

Gary Spike O Sullivan was the pride of Cork and Ireland as he landed a knockout blow to floor Melvin Beracourt and win the WBA NABA title in Boston a few weeks ago.Spike caused a sensation when he came out into the ring wearing a kilt supplied by none other than ours truly Tom Murphy Menswear.When he came into the shop he was kitted out in the full tartan works by Dermot who is our resident kilt expert.Between the two of them it was decided that the pride of Ireland was the most appropriate kilt for Spike to wear for the title fight(Only Dermot and Spike were privy to the fact that the kilt would actually be worn in the fight itself!).There was a buzz of excitement in the shop the day Spike came in and he was incredibly generous in posing for photographs with customers and staff alike.As to the fight itself the champ didn’t take long to despatch Beracourt-some four minutes to pulverise the hapless Central American and stake his claim to fight one of the big boys in world boxing.It is starting to look increasingly likely that Spike will be fighting either Andy Lee,Goloshny or Chis Eubank junior next.
