Best Independent Labels – Douglas Menswear


You may have seen me talk about Douglas Menswear on social media, or read the post about how much I liked the shirts they sent me to try. Well given that they have become a wardrobe staple, (I have a wedding on Friday that might get the white one a turn round the block) I was excited to hear the website had been given a revamp and headed over to take a peak.


Hailing from Ireland they are a menswear label that splits its collections into the more formal tailored look of suits, shirts and classically imagined garments for the office or occasion wear, and the more casual, but still in keeping with the tailored look casual range.


They have an ever-expanding selection of stockists but the website allows you to have a look before heading on down to the shops to bag some treats. As a man who never knowingly dresses down I’ve fallen in love with a large part of the collection. I always prefer the more gentlemanly style, and that for me is why these collections are such a great fit.


I want good lines, a nod to classic style, you can pick up notes of the 50’s and 60’s in the collection, and of course a sense of fit. Looking round the site is a bit of a problem though, as I now want so much I may end up maxing the cards. If you are a guy I highly recommend these collections, or as presents for birthdays, fathers day and all those important dates in the life of any man you might be buying a gift for. After all isn’t style the best gift of all?
