Brooklyn Tailors’ Flecked Donegal Tweed Suit is the definition of organized fun. No, I’m not talking about work parties where fun is heavily encouraged but never had; I’m talking about organized fun of the sartorial variety: a classic menswear garment with just a pinch of flair.
Cut from a beautiful Donegal wool tweed fabric woven in Italy by Campore, Brooklyn Tailors’ BKT35 Unstructured jacket features; a completely unpadded shoulder and unstructured body for a relaxed, effortless drape, genuine horn buttons, a narrow notch lapel, a three-button sleeve, two interior pockets, a back vent, and top-stitched detailing throughout. Unlined through the body and sleeves, the medium-heavy weight suit jacket – good to wear all year round – has been tailored with a lighter, softer construction, giving the jacket unrivaled versatility in terms of the setting in which you can wear it; whether you’re a regular in the boardroom or an extra on the set of Peaky Blinders.
The matching BKT50 Donegal Tweed trousers feature; a lined two-piece skirted waistband with an extended tab closure, equipped with a hook and button, belt loops, two slanted front pockets, two besom rear pockets with button loop closures, and a flat front.
But, the pièce de résistance, of course, is that Donegal Tweed fabric. Famous for its distinctive bright flecks of color woven throughout, Donegal tweed is not a fabric you typically see with formalwear, but Brooklyn Tailors has made it work, and then some.
Both pieces are made in Portugal and are available for $625 (jacket) and $330 (pants) from Brooklyn Tailors.
