How Much?! Penneys Now Stocks These Men’s Tweed Suits For €210
A severe case of notions... but they are LOVELY suits, tbf.
While we’ve been known to enter those hallowed doors searching only for a pair of tights and leave laden down with bags, it’s nigh on impossible to spend more than €100 on Penneys gear. Unless, of course, you’re a man who is in the market for a new suit.
Penneys revealed two new “capsule collections” yesterday as part of their A/W16 line, one with Donegal tweed manufacturer Molloy & Sons, and another with Italian label Lanificio Del Fusero.
Prices star at €45 per piece, but for a tweed three-piece suit including waistcoat you’re looking at €210.
The most expensive piece in the range? This tweed herringbone coat, for €140:
There’s no denying the pieces are gorgeous though, and for a tweed or Italian wool suit it’s pretty solid value. This will be Penneys’ second year partnering with Molloy & Sons – company owner Kieron Molloy told the Irish Times that he supplied “thousands” of metres of fabric last year – and its first with Lanificio Del Fusero.
The collections will only be available in certain Irish stores, all of them in Dublin. Both the tweed and Italian wool ranges can be found in Mary Street, Blanchardstown, O’Connell Street, while Dundrum will stock just the Italian wool range.
