Any time. If it wasn't entirely clear in my previous response, this year's peacoat will be made with tweed from County Donegal. Two (or possibly three) colours in the Tetris tweed which we have used previously. We also have some deerskin gloves, which make use of the same tweed, too. And, on a third County Donegal tip -- we have worked with the little father and son mill, responsible for the above, on some traditional Irish blankets. These will all arrive in a little...
Wotcha Nope -- the wool-tweed mac, as it was once known, did not make the cut this year. It will most likely begin life instead as a cotton-twill overcoat in the New Year. We made a few important improvements to it, to the cut and pockets and the collar, and it is now a better, more interesting, and more substantial garment. What tweed there will be this year is the peacoat (imminent) and then a new SB2 jacket made from wool from the Inner Hebrides (about which I plan...
Yes, we are indeed making one or two heavyweight crewneck jumpers in size XS this time around. XL too. The lighter crewneck and fold-stitch cardigan which we are introducing this autumn, meanwhile, will both begin at size S. They are both fairly neat-fitting in sleeve and body already, you see. Besides, best to test the waters and all that ... Hope that helps. Paul
Evening I am glad you asked. We have some new peacoats in wool-tweed, to which we are currently putting the finishing touches, and a heavyweight cotton-twill trench coat (wool-melton lined) -- both due in the next couple of weeks. A second tranche of heavy woollen garments will come along at the end of October, or thereabouts. Jackets of a one- and two-button nature mostly. Knitwear -- very thick jumpers, somewhat lighter jumpers, and cardigans -- is due roughly in...
Wotcha Styleforum   One or two new things have sprung forth from our little apparel-fridge in east London.   First is the launch of a project with Beams International Gallery: a "shop-in-shop", as they're called, at the flagship store in Harajuku. Four garments have been developed especially for the event, using two specially-woven tweeds. There is a navy-blue woollen trench with detachable shearling top-collar, a navy-blue vest, a brown birdseye tweed collarless...
Good suggestion, and one which I have thought about a little before -- but we don't plan far enough ahead to be able to give customers sufficient information or detail about any garment not yet made. We usually have only a 2-3 week lead-time, from when we decide to go ahead with a production run, to when it is complete and ready to buy. As soon as we do make that decision, however, we tend to tweet or blog about it -- and we are always very open on email, if ever you...
Yes, you really don't see so much Bedford cord these days.   Its resemblance to cotton cord is really only superficial, because structurally they are very different -- but its corrugated and grooved look and feel makes it a good companion with its cotton namesake on the reversible overshirt.   We plan to keep using it across other garments over the next 12 months.   Paul
On the subject of that which is new, I should point out a few new additions to our workshop.   First is a reversible overshirt, made from cotton corduroy (deadstock, woven about twenty years ago by a mill in Lancashire, in the north-west of England) and a wool known as Bedford cord (woven by a mill in Somerset, down in the south-west).   There's a rust-colour version, and an off-black version, and they're both at http://www.sehkelly.com/shop/jackets/.       I...
Hello   Thank you for the kind words. Two moderately quick answers:   * We will indeed be making more 10-ply jumpers, later this autumn, but the rollneck will not be amongst them. Instead, we have the crewneck again, in a few different four-yarn shades of grey.    (We are also making a 6-ply jumper, and some cardigans, too; all of them super-soft lambswool, and all of them variations on our usual tuck-stitch.)   * Prices on the website include VAT. To talk...
Hmm.We measure thigh in the usual way: trouser laid down flat, measuring from seam to seam, across the thigh.Sounds to me like our proper trousers may be too tight for you.They are a traditional, roomy, cut in the waist and seat, and wide on the leg. After the first two "looks" on http://www.sehkelly.com/worn/, all trousers are the same style as the new moleskin ones.You can also see a few images of the moleskin trousers being worn, face on, standing up, at...
