An Irish Business with a Rich History Spanning 150 Years

The story of Magee starts in 1866 when John Magee opened a small draper’s shop on the site of the present Magee of Donegal in Donegal Town. A cloth merchant, John sold fabric that was woven in Donegal throughout Ireland and the UK. All suits and jackets were made to measure at this time so you could say he was a trailblazer in the tailoring industry! When the move towards ready-to-wear took place in the 1940s, Magee shifted their business to tailoring and developed the Thornproof jacket, which was designed to withstand a day in the field and the firm.. Fast forward to the 1970s, Magee continued to produce quality tailoring for men, specialising in bold colours and standout tweeds. In the 21st century, the brand was reinvented once again to include distinct collections with an emphasis on luxurious natural fabrics (with a selection designed and developed in the mill in Donegal). Today, the brand is a destination for tailoring for both work and wedding – with ready-to-wear and made-to-measure options.
