post #391 of 588
Evening all

I've mentioned here a few times our ongoing opticals development -- and I am pleased and proud to declare that it is now finished.

We have made three frames in total: two from tortoiseshell acetate and gold, and one from matted black acetate and gold.













They are made by a place down the road from our workshop, here in London, which opened its doors in 1930, and has been toiling away with much the same contraptions ever since. It is the last such factory in Britain -- a four-storey museum-grade monument to quality opticals -- and surely the last of its kind anywhere in the world, being as they make almost all of the frame -- the 100+ operations which go into it -- by hand.

It took a fair old while, but yes -- done.

I know this is a bit of a long shot, but i'm wondering if anyone here has a gently used Rollneck sweater, the kind they did a few seasons ago, up for sale. I would likely be open to any color, although the Navy is especially nice. I would need a size large most likely, perhaps a medium. Would also be open to the 10-ply crew neck jumper, size large, in the one season they did them without the pockets; again in likely any color. Shoot me a PM if you've got something like this. Picture of the rollneck below. Thanks

@sehkelly  How is the duffle coat coming along?

post #394 of 588
Coincidentally, we have begun cutting the new duffle coat, and expect to have them made within the next two weeks.

Here is the pattern, doing what patterns are often found to do, lying around the cutting table.



And here is the latest prototype of the coat, which is currently serves at the factory as a reference sample for production.



If there's anything else I can tell you about it -- the cloth of the shape or what-have-you -- then by all means, please ask away.

How does the new wool overshirt look when worn open? Are the large buttons distracting?

Hadn't noticed that overshirt yet. Looks nice. I bought one of the new lambswool shirts earlier this summer (in preparation for Autumn, mind you). Put a wear-photo on my Instagram. Wearing a large, usually take a medium.

I wouldn't say they were distracting, the buttons on the overshirt -- but I suppose it is a subjective thing, isn't it?

Still, for some indication of what it might look like -- excuse the lack of photographs of it -- then the reversible overshirt is a good guide:

Not that the buttons here are 20% larger than on the overshirt you're asking about.

I hope that helps.

And the photograph which Nick kindly provides is a good reference, too. The new overshirt is built on the same block as the raglan shirt, but the body is longer, with a curved hem.

I would say in general it is best to go for your standard size, though, rather than one up (as Nick did with the shirt). The overshirt is lined, unlike the aforementioned shirt, so its capacity to cling to the body is restricted by the cotton lining. It fits very much true to size, in my own experience and that of the handful of customers who have bought or tried one thus far.

On the subject of our new duffle coat -- one of our stockists in Tokyo has recently published its AW15 lookbook, which I've just discovered features the camel version.



There's more at http://shop.maiden.jp/catalogue.html.

Im very curios about the new frames . Especially the black ones. Om using Oliver Peoples Rileys at the moment an are curios to replace them with yours. What size are they, and do you have any more "fit" pictures with them?

Kind Regards,
Jerry

Dear Jerry

Sorry for the late reply; I seem to have somehow disabled Styleforum alerts to my inbox.

There are quite a few "fit" pictures of the frames near the foot of the product pages -- e.g. http://www.sehkelly.com/shop/opticals/spectacle-frame-with-hockey-end-sides/. I am afraid that is all we have, for now, but the plan is to continue having the frame feature in future photoshoots, in an ongoing sort of way.

The diameter of the visible lens is 43mm, and the total width of the front is 127mm.

I hope that helps, but do let me know here (with alerts now enabled) if I may assist further.

Just wanted to clarify--your gift cards never running out means they can be used multiple times? So there would be no point in buying (i.e. having people gift me) more than one?

Not quite.

They never run out in the sense that there is no expiry. If you buy a £50 gift card today, it will still be valid for as long as S.E.H Kelly is in existence (i.e. until the end of time).

But once it is spent, then it is time to buy a new one.

Hope that clarifies things.

Paul
