Jack Murphy began his career in the garment industry in the 40’s, specialising in corstery. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1922, he like many at the time, served in WWII. After returning from the war, he moved to Skerries, Co. Dublin with his wife Frances where he started up his own niche corstery business.
With this expert knowledge of garment structure and ladies fashion, and taking the outdoor functional military attire into consideration, soon the Jack Murphy brand was born.
Jack was a family man, so it’s no surprise that his son Michael, and his granddaughter Sarah are continuing on his elegant legacy. Creating beautiful, purposeful clothing that is made to last; Jack Murphy the brand is committed to slow fashion and tailored functionality in every collection.
Staying true to these values, each piece still carries Jack‘s personal signature of authentication. We want to capture the essence of self-expression, comfort and pride when wearing Jack Murphy and in doing so, we hope you will pass this joy and jacket on to the next generation.

“My raincoat traveled from Dublin to Boston, MA USA just in time for our spring rains. I love my new jacket! I love the plaid on the inside and the soft flannel pockets. It fits great and keeps me warm & dry. Thank you, Jack Murphy for making this awesome raincoat!”
“Stylish and affordable, I am a huge fan of Jack Murphy clothing. The fit is always spot on, an area where other makes fail. As the trust is now there, I go back to them time and time again with confidence for all my country wear. My daughter first introduced me to the brand and we both highly recommend, especially for coats and jackets.”
“I purchased a coat for dog walking 5 years ago. As I wear it every day in all weather's I decided to get another 2 years ago, same coat, different colour.I've still not worn it!! My original one is still fantastic. People even comment on how smart it is. Maybe I will wear it this winter.. Just for a change. Highly recommended!”
“I bought my first Jack Murphy raincoat in a small store when visiting Achill, that was at least 10 years ago and that raincoat is still like new. I have since bought 5 other Jack Murphy coats and I could not live without them. I live in the states now and when the snow blows and the temps get below freezing I reach for my Jack Murphy and know I will be warm and cozy. It makes me feel good to know that I am wearing quality Irish made clothing and supporting my kinsfolk. It is great to see that Jack Murphy now ships to the USA.”
“The best jacket I own is a Jack Murphy. Great quality and fit, would recommend to anyone looking for quality Irish outdoor clothing!!’
“I first purchased a walking jacket of Jack Murphy's at the heritage site in Wexford and wore it, and wore it, and wore it! Actually I still wear it and that was at least 8 years ago. Since then I have purchased quite a few coats and jackets from your online site. On one occasion the jacket was slightly small so my sister in law from the US wouldn't let me send it back she liked it so much, so I bought another. The quality and styling is second to none and they are always admired. Delighted we have such wonderful Irish companies!”
“I have a number of coats from Jack Murphy and have also bought several as gifts for people. The waxed jackets are excellent and a brilliant investment, I have had mine for several years and it still looks great. Have bought directly from Jack Murphy website and delivery is prompt and customer service is good.”
