If I might chip in ... I would expect that, in a cloth so thick, a size S will be a snug fit for someone of your size. Of course, it depends really on how you want it to fit -- for a more relaxed look and feel, or to wear more than, say, a regular shirt beneath it, a size M would most likely be a better bet. Paul
Hello   Yes -- the cotton-twill is a heavyweight outerwear cloth (450gsm or thereabouts). Typically we make trench coats and work jackets with it.   The cloth is intended to soften and adapt with wear. Washing it certainly will soften it, but probably best to wear it a few times, first, before doing so. I have a trench coat in the same cloth myself, which has been worn for a couple of years, and it is now the softest thing around -- sort of like how raw denim softens...
Crikey. Thank you very much indeed for the kind words (above).    Here are a few of the new things mentioned in the above posts, which I finally go around to photographing this week and the one before.                             Paul
 Hello I am afraid that I haven't any fit pictures from customers, but we do have a fair few of our own, hidden away on our site, which you mightn't have yet spotted.        All of the above are size S, and all are an identical in size and shape to their equivalents this year. Of all our garments, the heavy jumpers are very "true to size". In three years, I have yet to see one chap who requests a S, say, and then ask for a different size. Anecdotal, I know -- but I hope...
 Sure. Consider it done. Paul
Wotcha   A short, sharp message, this, just to say that our knitwear -- which I know a fair few Styleforummers have been enquiring about -- is now live at http://www.sehkelly.com/knitwear/.   We have brought back, for the third year running, the ten-ply tuck-stitch jumper, and added a mid-weight tuck-stitch cardigan, and a lightweight three-shade lambswool crewneck.   Thank you. As you were. Paul
Thank you for such kind words. Very good of you. Better luck next time and all that.
It is a thick cloth, especially for a blazer. Very warm. Whether you can wear it indoors depends, I suppose, on the temperature of the indoors in question.
 I am afraid we're not really set up for personalisation and that sort of thing, dear Fok ... ... although we'd be happy to supply you with the necessary brass popper fastenings (if indeed that's the sort of thing you have in mind). Then all you need to do is find someone local with the right tooling to punch it through the cloth. Thinking as I type, paul@sehkelly.com might be the best place to continue the conversation, if you're so inclined.
 You know, the metric weight of a cloth doesn't often come up, the way we work, with the smaller mills. Maybe we just never ask ... It is mid- to heavy-weight, and very dense, and a little on the dry and hairy side. Still, a little softer than your typical Harris tweed, such is the nature of the yarn and the type of finishing. I would say 500-500gsm, but I will ask the mill (about time) to get an exact measurement. Paul
