One Longford man appears to have redefined fashion with just one tweet this week - and it’s all in the name of furniture sales.

Michael Byrne from furniture store bigmickey.ie was spotted sporting a suit designed with the famous symbol from the BBC’s closed service which will be remembered by anyone born before 1990.

The suit, which has garnered national attention, is being worn with great pride this week by Byrne, who says its maker and where it came from are top secret for the moment. “I’m keeping that under wraps,” he laughed speaking to the Leader on Friday.

“I won’t disclose that at the minute!”.

He wore the suit to promote the company’s latest sale and the tweeted picture was picked up by Joe.ie and The Irish Exaimner to name but a few outlets.

According to the local business man, there are even bigger and more exciting changes coming down the line.

“Yes, we have a few things in the pipeline alright,” he added.

“We are launching a brand new website and we will be launching videos and that type of thing in the coming weeks.”

“We have a very central location and to be honest with you we have people coming to us from the 32 counties of Ireland,” Michael continued.

“We get great feedback from the websites and the best way to get business is through word of mouth - that is what works for us.”
