I have an irrational dislike of thing fully lined. Not sure why.
I know that I do very much like the appearance of a buggy lining, and I do like the appearance of neat binding on the inside of a garment. That must be it.
We have a few different styles of buggy lining now, and it is nice to tie the design of that with the design of the outer.
Those woollen shirts -- they've arrived. Half of them, at least. There's a charcoal and navy version in the offing, too.
It's called a tie-weave, this type of woollen. I don't know why, but what I do know is that it is incredibly lightweight and loosely woven: hold it up to the light and you can see straight through it, and it has a sort of gauze-y construction. It is a soft merino wool, and has evidently been finished in such a way to make it smooth and flat.
It's unlike any woollen we've used previously; it is so loose it can pass for a knitted material.
I must admit I have certain reservations about woollen shirts, vis a vis skin irritation -- but I wore one of these yesterday on a day of mid-to-high intensity at the factory, and not even the faintest prickle. I wore it again today. I think this is the start of a beautiful relationship: as a shirt in winter, and as a very light jacket in spring.
Gushing aside, http://sehkelly.com/shirts/ is where they are.
Thank you very much indeed.
* Breaking news: the page was pulling in the wrong size table *
The sleeve-length is quite a standard one. I'm a tall chap with commensurately long arms, and on the size S (for I am also thin) the sleeves extend just beyond the nobble of my wrist. Some customers find them too short, some too long; as the human form has evolved, consistency of arm-length clearly hasn't been much of a deal-breaker.
In fact, we try to be straight down the line / middle of the European-standard road with most of our shapes and fits, really -- aside from a few styles of jacket with are purposefully short. We work with tailors and makers who are too long in the tooth to allow us to deviate from the norm.
They are dry-clean only, yes, or cool hand-wash. (You could perhaps also use the wool cycle on your machine, if you have one. But of course I don't recommend it because every machine is different.)
Here's the lead grey version of the shirt again, worn with one of today's new wool-melton SB1 jackets.
Yep -- the charcoal is very similar to the lead-grey, just a few shades darker. It is to the lead shirt what this jacket (http://sehkelly.com/sb3-lead-grey-chalk-stripe-wool-suiting/) is to this jacket (http://sehkelly.com/sb3-charcoal-chalk-stripe-wool-suiting/).
I'm photographing it today, and all being well, it'll be online by the end of Monday.
The charcoal one is now at http://www.sehkelly.com/raglan-shirt-in-lead-grey-knit-woollen-twill/.
Afraid not, no. Sorry.
We did receive back a lead grey one in size L, however, which is now in stock again.
There's also a new navy one (the final colour in this epic drip-feed of colourways) at http://www.sehkelly.com/raglan-shirt-in-navy-knit-woollen-twill/, in which we have a small number of the core sizes.
I thought i'd post here, since there is so much interest. I just picked up my peacoat from the post office, and its a work of art. That being said, i'm not 100% sure on the sizing. Going to hang it and let it relax and bit from shipping, but the Medium might be a hint too snug, and I think the large would be too generous. I'm going to think on it a bit, but I would sell it to someone here for whatever I paid; easier to send it to the US than back to the UK, i'd like to avoid return shipping if at all possible, if i'm not keeping it. If anyone is interested, let me know.
I'll try and post some pics of the fabric and some of the other things I got this season later this week, when I can find some time.
