What is Irish tweed?

Tweed is a woollen fabric that is made from carded wool, thick and strong un-straightened fibres. Irish Tweed is warm and flexible but not as smooth or uniform as other yarns, it has a strong natural feeling to it.  Irish Tweed is seen as a classic or unique item due to its high-quality pure wool consistency. Throughout the 1850-1900 period, tweed was very popular due to its warmth and breathability. To this day it is still a favourite for people all over the world.

Many Americans who have Irish Heritage love our Tweed Jackets, as they are made in Ireland, unique and show off a story, a history, and the true quality of the garment.

HISTORY, TRADITION AND STYLE

IRISH TWEED

The Tweed Jacket has been the heart of classical Irish Style for years, it was a favourite back in the Victorian era, and still is today!  It is a fantastic present for any man, especially one who has Irish roots, as it is not only a quality, comfortable long-lasting garment, it is a remembrance of where you have come from, the history, tales and culture of Ireland.

Our Tweed Jackets are made from superior Irish Quality wool, if you need a tailored fit, made to measure your fittings, we are here to help, simply let us know in the form below, or click here.

On our online store we have a selection of colours and styles, but in-store we have much more to choose from, again if you are looking for anything particular get in touch with us.

Tweed was originally designed to keep the Irish hunters and town folk warm during outdoor sports, or general day to day life, the material is thick, hardwearing and warm, but at the same time breathable, so it is perfect for colder climates, fantastic for protection against rain, hail and snow.

The colours used in our Tweed Jackets are the same that have been used for decades, picking up the same colours as the Irish landscape, rich greens, blues, and greys that look fantastic when worn.  It was this reason they were very popular for the traditional Irish hunters and fishermen, as they were able to blend into their surroundings.

These Irish Tweed items have been carefully crafted under the watchful eye of a Master Weaver, ensuring quality, and also ensuring that the traditional method of producing these garments remains alive.

Lately, Tweed has become even more popular thanks to various films and series, the Peaky Blinders Tweed Jackets show off the style perfectly, and movies such as Indiana Jones illustrate that the traditional Tweed Jacket will never go out of fashion.

  • 5 star review  This shop is deservedly known as a Cork institution. Excellent service all round: reputation is well deserved. (I'm also pleased to note that the Benetti advert featuring Stuart Olding et al seems to have been taken down from its prominent place in the window; this was a wise decision, given his and his comrade's self-described reprehensible behaviour.)

  • 5 star review  I was looking for a bit more quality, or something more special than bulk rented suits, so I read a lot of reviews on line and came across Con Murphys. The suit I went for was tailored for me, so I actually bought my suit, which is fantastic, and the groomsmen rented theirs, fantastic service, thanks so much again Donie for your help, a real expert
