Magee Suits 

The appearance of Bryan McFadden and Keith Duffy on the late late last week raised a few eyebrows when they made known their plans to kick start the new Boyslife tour.It is essentially an amalgamation of the two bands,albeit there is only one member from each former band.
The two lads looked dashing in their tweed ensembles and when Ryan Tubridy asked them where they got the suits they were quick to give Magee a plug.Coincidentally I was once talking to the owner of the Magee shop in Dublin city centre and Ryan Tubridy passed through the doors and the shop owner told me Tubridy shops there regularly).
The fact that Duffy and McFadden were wearing Magee suits points to two things.One is that the former boy band stars are no longer boys but mature men who have left behind their glossy white 3 piece suits and designer leather jacket looks.It also shows that Magee is now a badge of honor for fashionable thirty somethings!

Personal Tailoring at Tom Murphy Menswear

In December 2011, the new Personal Tailoring Collection was launched by Magee Menswear. Personal Tailoring by Magee has been around for a few decades now but recently the front end that has been revamped to give the consumer a better and more valuable ‘personal’ experience which is facilitated by the retailer.

The Made to Measure service at Tom Murphy Menswear has the Magee Personal Tailoring Collection at the core of its offering. According to Tom Murphy ‘The new Personal Tailoring service being offered by Magee is expansive and innovative. The range of fabrics on offer is vast and everything is covered from the finest weights in pure new wools to more traditional heavy weight materials. The customer can basically design his own suit with optional buttons, linings and collar felts. This leads to a feeling of empowerment and input into the design process on the part of the consumer which adds to the feeling of personalisation’.

This personalisation of the design of your own suit is what makes the process so different to just going in and buying a suit off the rack. At a cost that is not prohibitive (it is usually about 20% more then a good quality ready-made suit), you can basically design the suit yourself. As well as this the other obvious benefit in a suit that is personally tailored is the precision of the measurements. All shapes and sizes can be accommodated and a perfect fit is always guaranteed.

So if you are interested in getting a Made to Measure suit by Magee, get into Tom Murphy Menswear and let one of their expert tailors get their measuring tapes around your waist. The whole process takes about half an hour and your suits will be ready for collection within 5 weeks.
