Thanks for the response. I'll be looking forward to the new offerings.

By the way, weren't your trousers called narrow/taper as opposed to standard/proper a few years back? Are the standard and narrow trousers the same cut or different? I have a pair in the narrow and absolutely love the cut.

The narrow trousers are an older style, last part of our line-up two or more years ago, and which we have now discontinued. (Confusingly, we also had an old "standard trouser" style, which is not the same as today's "standard trouser".)

Our current trousers, standard and proper, are completely different to what went before. The standards have a similar leg-width to the old standards, but their construction and details are very different. The seams are heavier, a lot more work goes into the waistband and pockets, the rise is higher / more traditional, and they're a lot tidier to look at on the inside.

We hope to have a new narrow trouser by spring.

Thanks for the info. It's good to hear that you are always trying to improve your already-great product.

Is anyone interested in purchasing one of the original Apex 10-ply sweaters in near perfect condition in a size large? I haven't really been able to wear it due to Atlanta not being cold enough. Send me a message we can talk about price.

 

 

Picture of which sweater I'm talking about

Good luck with that (never heard it called the "apex" sweater though).

Apropos of not very much at all -- apart from hey: it is nearly the end of the year, and we've begun developments now for early spring -- here is what we have made over the past few months.























Onwards now with things for the New Year.

Happy and mirthful festivities to one and all.

Hello all

I know there are a fair few London-based SF-ers on here, so I'm flagging up a little event we're having with Vitsoe on Duke Street (in the shadow of Selfridges) next month.

It's a week-long affair, starting with an opening night on Thursday 4 February, to which you can RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/perennial-favourites-tickets-20752143219.

What's there? Lots of new garments -- things for spring, plus half of what we're currently developing for next autumn for our partners in Japan -- and me, and of course all the marvellous things made by Vitsoe.

Please -- drop by if you can.

Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Looking ahead to next Fall/Winter, I was wondering if you ever considered designing your own version of the classic tweed Norfolk or shooting jacket? I can imagine it would be fantastic.

post #428 of 583
I must admit that we haven't thought much about that one. Our centre of gravity is probably closer to the street, the everyday, than the countryside, so a Norfolk jacket is more of a stretch for us than, say, a peacoat or trench or car coat.

We currently have a topcoat in work (split-sleeve construction, a sort of relaxed quasi-formal design) and are mindful of developing a parka (which seems to me a gap of ours) as well as some redesigns of a few existing styles. Perhaps when we've sorted those, we'll move onto things further off our radar like the Norfolk jacket. I'd certainly never say never to that one, since it is surely a nice, meaty design challenge, which is what I enjoy thinking about most -- but having never really been drawn to them myself, on a personal level, it might be a way off yet.

Thanks for a great question.

Evening all

It has been rather busy here — developing and making and checking and packing things for our partners in Japan. But that's all done now, out of the way, so normal service is resumed with our workshop and website.

And lo — here are our first new things for a while, a couple of (cough, splutter) "mid-layers" (see http://sehkelly.com/of-middling-quality/).

A new work jacket, for starters:







And then there's an overshirt:





Both are made with a hopsack linen-cotton (or cotton-linen) from the north-west of England. It's a heavy workwear-type cloth, only with its linen content giving it a pleasing haphazard slubbiness.

Tip of the spring-time iceberg this, really. Between now and the end of spring, we hope to produce a steady stream of things of linen and cotton and linen-cotton.

How-do good people of Styleforum

 

We recently overcame a period of profound procrastination and managed to photograph some of the new things we've made for that day of the year when the sun comes out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We're working on a few other things, too -- linen coats, one or two things made with Ventile Ripstop -- and they're due to join the above next month.

 

Over and out.

Afternoon all

 

Since neither of us here are convinced that summer is actually going to happen this year, we've shifted focus to autumn.

 

One of the new things we're working on is a possibly-more-ethical version of a mostly-angora cloth we made overshirts with last year. I've blathered on about it at some length at http://www.sehkelly.com/words/2016/06/fluffy-tale/.

 

 

We're making some work jackets with it -- a short, simple style, with four buttons, a stand collar, and almighty front pockets -- and, by the looks of things here at the factory today, they'll be ready by the time I've clicked "Submit."

Yes please.

That duffle coat though.
post #435 of 583

Thanks.

 

I expect we will make a few more duffle coats this year. They were quite popular through winter just gone, and the way they're made -- with the inset front, raglan back -- has informed a few of our new coat and jacket developments this year.

 

Speaking of jackets ... the angora / merino work jackets I mentioned above, made with the cloud-soft cloth from south-west Wales, are now finished, and landed at http://sehkelly.com/shop/ this morning.
