ack 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
As a third generation Irish family business, we are passionate about creating beautiful, purposeful clothing that is made to last. We make trend-proof, sustainable ‘slow fashion’ womenswear and menswear collections focusing on quality fabrics and styles.
We are known for our signature tailored design in outerwear and occasionwear collections, featuring waterproof and waxed jackets with complementary styles using Irish tweed and wool based fabrics. Many of our styles are perennials, and we continue to be inspired by longevity and functionality compounded with style and precision tailoring.
Family and heritage are extremely important to us, and we take pride that these values are evident in the design and quality of every piece we produce. We aim to capture a sense of comfort, self-expression and pride when wearing Jack Murphy and in doing so pass this joy and jacket on to the next generation.
