A classic tweed vest that can be worn both as a standalone item and with a jacket.
The face is made of Donegal tweed with plain weave. The back and the lining are made of light satin viscose.
The tweed was woven in one of the home shops that collaborate with Magee 1866. After that, it was further treated at their manufacture in Donegal.
The yarn for this tweed was manufactured from pure new lambswool. The fabric is also characterized by the presence of pure new wool which means that the wool was shorn from living sheep, and is used for the first time.
There is a half-belt on the back, with a special regulator allowing to ideally adjusting the vest to one’s figure. In the lower part of the vest, there is a pair of neat slit pockets of small depth.
The Magee 1866 brand is known by its perfectionist approach to detail. The vest is manufactured magnificently, with each smallest detail exactly where it should be. Seams and details junctions are really perfect.
It fits both men and women.
At the photo you can also see a blue striped flannel shirt in the old style, from Lee Valley Ireland.
