For Him 

One of the key characteristics of Donegal Tweed is the colourful neps you find in the threads, originally made using natural-plant dyes found in the surrounding landscape, this season Magee 1866 have brought this ‘Donegal fleck’ through to their knitwear.

New styles include the Clifden turtleneck and Port fisherman rib cardigan both of which pay homage to Ireland’s long standing fishing traditions and join a range of knitwear focusing on natural fibres including lambswool and organic cotton and cashmere blends.
