    Donegal Tweed Fitting

    Fancy a bit of personalised Irish tweed? The rugged landscapes of Donegal is a region renowned for their tradition of weaving tweed. Meet with an expert tailor who will fit a bespoke suit of your choice. After a fitting, the tailor will help decide on the perfect pattern and everything that goes with it: linings, trims, buttons and collars. Though it will take a few weeks for your personalised garment to be finished, the wait is well worth it for such high-quality bespoke tweed.
