5) STUNNING Donegal Tweed by Magee--Made for Mullarney Bros. of Co. Sligo!

This is absolutely STUNNING!! Cut from handwoven Donegal Tweed, this wonderful jacket is a serious rarity, being both a three-buttoned tweed, and a handwoven Dongela that's a puppytooth.. with a fantastic colourway, being a slateblue and peat black puppytooth flecked with gorse yellow, moss and forest greens, pumpkin orange, and berry red. This Donegal easily rivals the more complex Harris tweeds, and is both striking and subtle. A really wonderful tweed, with great texture and a fantastic colourway! It was woven by one D. Hood, who has signed it.

The jacket does the tweed justice, too. Made by Magee, the main maker of Donegal tweeds, in Ireland, this is a rare three button jacket, featuring side vents and three button cuffs. It is half canvassed and fully lined, and the tweed is a wonderful substantial weight. This relaly is a fantastic jacket for the Fall, Winter, and early Spring!
