I do!

Not much help that, is it? Probably not the impartial response you're looking for ...

Anecdotally, though, I have very fond of the thing. Huge and thick and very soft (it is the same mix of merino-wool and cashmere used to make the new Donegal scarf). We went to Donegal looking for cloth and we came away with blankets.

The pattern is more prominent on the biscuit one, because there's greater difference between the shades of yarn used to weave it, but other than that, both colours are very similar.

Despite not being our stock in trade, I *think* we have sold one or two to the good people of Styleforum over the past year. There's even a chap out there, somewhere, who wears one, draped expertly around his shoulders. "Shepherd tweed", apparently.

Can't wait for the herringbone peacoat to be done. There's still a duffle left in my size too redface.gif

Thanks for the input Paul.

Are you by chance getting this for fall? Saw it on IG and didn't know if it's a Japan release only.

That's a very good find.

 

Only for Japan, that one, yes. The blankets at http://sehkelly.com/blankets/ are all we feel the need to offer on the website for now, whereas the shops in Japan have a more voracious appetite for such things. A few of the woollen mills we work with are good with blankets, but since our stock in trade is coats and jackets and the rest of it, we only do them every now and then. Plus there's just less design involved in them, so they're not quite as satisfying to work on.

 

(In fact, the blanket cloth left over from those blankets we made into a small run of duffle coats, which I think I posted on here the other week.)

The peacoat in the herringbone tweed pictured on this post is, I am sorry to report, just a prototype. We made it with a roll of old cloth (wonderful though it is) over at the coat factory. 

 

Sorry -- it isn't something that will be produced. Perhaps something similar next year, though.


Depending on your size, there's a duffle coat in the blanketing cloth left here, too.

Evening all

 

After what feels like many years (it has in fact been only several) the new peacoat is here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The heavy worsted overcoating makes for a very sturdy coat indeed. It holds the shape of the coat very well, especially the collar. And, while it is by far the heaviest coat we've ever made, it certainly doesn't feel as such. The length is longer than average for a peacoat, but once you've spaced the pockets out in a sensible sort of way, and proportioned the coat accordingly, this is the length you get. The right length, I think.

 

There is now more of this sort of thing at http://www.sehkelly.com/peacoat-dark-navy-worsted-overcoating/.

So your my competition for small :). I WAS thinking about the peacoat since the topcoat was gone but surprise surprise both M and S were already gone. O well, always next year.

No more colours this year, sorry to say.

 

We wanted to get the ball rolling with a simple-looking cloth — I wanted to ensure the shape and fit of the coat was just right, and any flaws or oversights with the look of it wouldn't be disguised by a more complex material — but will surely try it in other, possibly more patterned, cloth next year.

^That is a nice peacoat, love the longer length. The material wool looks pretty sturdy....
post #478 of 584

Cheers.

 

Yes, it is very sturdy.

 

Great cloth: more than just a very thick melton, but a replica of military cloth woven with worsted-spun yarn and milled for a very, very long time to make it incredibly dense.

I really like that herringbone fabric as well, I would love to see the overcoat in it. A putty herringbone make-up would look amazing (something Lemaire-esk) but the grey is great too.

It is a nice cloth, the herringbone.

 

We made the peacoat prototype shown earlier in this thread with remnants of cloth from our balmacaan last year (as in http://www.sehkelly.com/words/2016/01/caan-do/). There was a brown and a blue-ish grey-ish blue-grey.

 

We tend to use cloth from that particular mill every year or so, so there's every chance the peacoat will return in something similar in future.
