I couldn't find an article for it, but I went to Western Ontario for New years eve 2014, and it dropped to -63C with the wind there. In true Canadian form, we had a bbq. Here is a decent video of hot water thrown in the air at -40C.

Haha don't worry about it. I sincerely wish I was wrong. This is why I like my sweaters made with bullet stopping thickness.

Any more questions please ask away.

Paul,

 

Found this old reply from 2012 and I'm wondering if the sleeve measurements on your website are still the same as what you describe above. It would seem so, since for instance looking at the charcoal grandad shirt, the XL is listed as having a 25" sleeve, but that's also puzzling me because it would seem based on what you are saying then that there is only a 2" difference from the top of the armhole to the bottom, which definitely doesn't seem right. I'm looking at size XS for me personally and the shoulder and sleeve measurements seem very small for otherwise normal sounding neck and chest measurements. Sorry to be so pedantic but perhaps you could elaborate on how you are measuring.

Oh yes. Short and simple answer to this one.

These days, we measure sleeve-length in the standard way (down the outside of the arm).

Damn, that's too bad. Love what I see of the products, but sounds like I'm well outside your pattern (too tall and/or too thin).

I'm curious how thigh is measured for your trousers? The thigh measurements relative to other measurements of your trousers seem disproportionate - that is, really tight. Looking at the models, though, would suggest otherwise. For reference, I'm 6 feet, 160 lbs, and typically wear a size 31 waist - a proper fitting trouser for me would have a close to a 12 inch thigh.

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 http://www.selectism.com/2014/08/21/s-e-h-kelly-offer-options-for-tricky-pre-fall-weather/. You can see that they are generous in the leg (all are size S, which is 32 on the waist when not cinched).

Everyone has different standards of what is wide-fitting, of course, but they are the widest trousers I have ever worn, and they have earned something of a following here in East London among local, disproportionately large-thighed, cyclists.

I hope that helps.

Paul

@sehkelly, two quick questions. Do you have any plans on restocking your 10 ply roll neck jumper by the year's end? And does your price include/exclude VAT? I am planning a trip to London sometime in December, and I would love to check out your shop. If I haven't spent all my money by then (i'm a student), I might pick up a sweater. They look sublime. Price seems great for non EU customers, especially considering most all of the best sweaters are made in the EU anyway.

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 VAT-deduction issues, please drop me an email, any time you like, at paul@sehkelly.com.

 

I hope that helps.

 

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 have also waffled on about them at some length at http://www.sehkelly.com/words/2014/09/reversible-overshirt/.

 

 

 

Moleskin trousers, too. They're also new. Not many of them left. More popular than anticipated, moleskin. Who'd have thought.

 

Paul

I wasn't aware of a wool-based Bedford Cord, only the cotton stuff.

Intriguing...

post #284 of 593

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.

 @sehkelly Have you ever considered preorders? (if the demand is there of course) I live across the pond, and everything sells out by the time I ever check your site or get an email.
