A classic tweed vest that can be worn both as a standalone item and with a jacket.
The face is made of intense olive Donegal tweed hand-made with herringbone weave. The back and the lining are made of light satin viscose.
The tweed was woven at the Magee 1866 manufacture in Donegal with the 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 linen shirt in the old style, from Lee Valley Ireland.
