About Personal Tailoring
How does the service work? Come in and see us and we will take a full set of professional measurements. This will ensure that the garment will fit you perfectly. Then we need to decide together on the ideal style, depending on whether you are looking for a jacket, smart suit for a wedding or special occasion, a business suit or something more casual. The Personal Tailoring Collection offers a choice of styles in up to 500 fabrics, so there will always be something that is suitable.
The finishing touches come by choosing from an extensive selection of linings, buttons, meltons, trim options and personalised embroidery.
Six weeks later, on average, come back and try on the suit made for you, so that we can check that the fit is perfect.
Magee was established in 1866 by John Magee, as a small drapers shop in Donegal, Ireland, buying and selling handwoven tweeds. In 1900 Robert Temple bought the business and today the 3rd and 4th generation Temple family are at the helm – Lynn, Charlotte and Paddy.
Magee are still designing and weaving luxury fabrics in Donegal – the ever-changing land and seascapes surrounding Donegal inspire colours and designs. In 2015 Magee acquired Robert Noble, a Scottish mill established in 1666. We use the finest of yarns – cashmere, lambswool, alpaca, silk and linen. These fabrics are used for men and women’s apparel and home furnishing. We still maintain a small hand-weaving business – fabrics are a far cry from the coarse tweeds of the 1800’s, today they are woven using luxury yarns, resulting in a beautifully soft handle.
