They'll come around in early autumn.We're making some samples now, to test out a few ideas. If I get the chance, I'll post a picture of the revised topcoat in the new grey Mourne Textiles tweed when it's ready, provided its proper and shipshape.
Speaking of "good ideas" -- I suppose what I'm talking about is a type of construction, or a strong, defining detail or functional element, that brings the whole garment together.   We're currently working on a new jacket, for instance, which has a "wholecut" upper: no shoulder seam, no sleeve seam. It is a type of construction that necessitates a seam across and around the chest, which when we were looking into it, reminded me of the shoulder / yoke panels on a donkey...
Evocative stuff!I dare say we will make a single-breasted topcoat-like thing at some point, but we haven't built a good enough idea around it yet.The topcoat has what we like to think are a few novelties that justify its existence and role in the collection, so a single-breasted version would have to have quite a few points of difference to squeeze itself into consideration.But it will happen at some point, I'm sure. Just not this year at least.Come to think of it, the...
 That was the plan. Time has got rather the better of me so far this year, and so I've been prioritising the Japan side of our SS17 production, at the expense of the side we make for our workshop / website. Thus they're running a couple of weeks behind. Happy to drop you an email or message when they're ready though, if you'd like?
You know, I can't think of a cloth we've used that has drawn so much admiration ...   We've been working with the mill for a grey / charcoal version of the same material, possibly for use this autumn. It's very much along the same lines, only, well ... grey, and with the occasional fleck of beige and brown. The topcoat seems a good candidate for it again, since it seems to have been fairly well received. Another coat or jacket, too, possibly: probably a shorter...
A few more photographs of the new glen-check raglan shirt mentioned the other day. The linen is from reportedly the oldest mill in Linenopolis — that is to say, the area of Northern Ireland just outside Belfast where a century ago every other building was flax-oriented. Wonderful stuff.
The Visa side of things is fine, but I'm not sure about the partial payment.Still, there's always a way. Please, email paul@sehkelly.com, and I'm sure we can work it out.
Thank you very much. I'll have it wrapped and on its way on Monday. Funnily enough, we do have a newsletter. There's a sign-up box at the foot of the website (I did contemplate a pop-up the very second anyone visits the website, but then had a stern word with myself). I send them once a month. Something of a marketing-phobe myself, so I steer it towards the personal and conversational as much as I can. On balance, and to allay any worry that you've been missing out, I'd...
 Sorry to hear that, but if there's anything you have your eye on, seemingly sold out, you can always enquire with me, as sometimes we have one-offs here at the workshop which are not online. Or perhaps they're sold out when you look online, but five minutes later, another customer returns it and it comes back into stock. For such events, I keep a log of customer enquiries. There's always the dynamic size-specific pages, too -- e.g. http://sehkelly.com/small...
Here's another shirt we've been working on.   It's our raglan shirt — more relaxed than the hemp one above, and with a half button-through / half concealed front  — and is made with a linen woven in Northern Ireland.     It's a very faint glen-check, which I seldom see in linens of this ilk. A sort of slate-blue.   What with the onslaught of baltic conditions this past week in London, we have been holding off even mentioning our new spring-friendly attire, but hey...
