“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” and a lifeless Jack is the last thing we want. The Jack in Navy Donegal introduces a compelling and tasteful aesthetic to our classic 3-button collar woven, making it truly the antithesis of “dull.” Equal parts conversation starter and show stopper, this shirt is utterly captivating without being flashy or braggy.
Donegal fabrics’ namesake is derived from Donegal, Ireland, a town in Northwest Ireland where the textile style first originated. Given the area’s abundant sheep population, the Irish townsfolk began weaving signature twills, herringbone, and one-of-a-kind “flecked” woolen fabrics. This flecked style was popularized and ultimately named after the are from which it was born. In order to obtain this look, deliberate inconsistencies and blemishes are woven into the fabric. Yarns are purposefully knotted and broken, thus providing a “nep” effect. The result is a wonderfully speckled fabric with a unique hand and attractive aesthetic idiosyncrasies. Our modernized, 6 oz. donegal achieves ultimate comfort, drape, and durability through the use of an intricate cotton, silk, wool, and viscose blend.
