Best Menswear is Ireland’s largest independent menswear retailer, specialising in selling men’s fashion and business suiting. With eleven stores nationwide and employing over 150 people Best Menswear has a strong heritage and expertise in formal menswear.

While specialising in suits, we also sell men’s formal shirts, coats, formal/casual jackets and accessories. Complementing our formal wear we carry an essential selection of men’s quality casual wear including international brands Tommy Hilfiger, Strellson, Selected Homme, Remus Uomo, Bugatti, Calvin Klein, Marco Capelli, Lacoste and XV Kings. Best Menswear takes great pride in being the official clothing sponsor of the GAA, the GPA and Leinster Rugby.

1950’s

Born in 1948 in the era of bespoke tailoring and made to measure suiting, Best Menswear has proved itself from generation to generation. We built our reputation and scaled our business to become the best hand crafted tailors in Dublin.

1960’s & 1970’s

We added ready to wear suits and casual wear to our stores, as we expanded into the suburbs of Dublin, with shopping centres becoming the new way to shop.

1980’s & 1990’s

Expanded both our brand offering and our store numbers, building year on year. In 2001 Irish friends John Smith and David Jones, with a vision to make Best Menswear the leading Menswear Retailer in the country, bought the business.

“We wanted to create Ireland’s most comprehensive selection of business and fashion suiting, complemented with collections from leading international menswear casual brands, quite literally bringing the Best in international fashion to the Irish market” 

John Smith | Best Menswear’s Managing Director

 

Comfortable modern stores and staff dedicated to exemplary service complete the picture and the recipe for success.

Today, we are the country’s largest independent menswear retailer, with 12 stores throughout Ireland.

A true heritage of tailoring excellence in Ireland, Best Menswear is the ultimate destination for quality, fit, choice, and service.
