    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.

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

    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.

    Good suggestion, and one which I have thought about a little before -- but we don't plan far enough ahead to be able to give customers sufficient information or detail about any garment not yet made.

    We usually have only a 2-3 week lead-time, from when we decide to go ahead with a production run, to when it is complete and ready to buy.

    As soon as we do make that decision, however, we tend to tweet or blog about it -- and we are always very open on email, if ever you have any questions about what's coming up (and if you would like anything set aside when it is ready).

    Regards

    Paul

    One or two new things have sprung forth from our little apparel-fridge in east London.

    First is the launch of a project with Beams International Gallery: a "shop-in-shop", as they're called, at the flagship store in Harajuku. Four garments have been developed especially for the event, using two specially-woven tweeds. There is a navy-blue woollen trench with detachable shearling top-collar, a navy-blue vest, a brown birdseye tweed collarless jacket (with reversible horn-brass buttons) and matching traditional trousers. The cloth was woven here in London, by a weaving acquaintance of ours, at the other end of east London.

    Here is some of what it is all about ...

    In other news -- we have a few new Ventile cotton jackets.

    The tour jacket -- a coat with a few features which are intended to make cycling a little bit easier, if you so inclined (and useful of course even if you don't cycle, like the shooting shoulder). Made with heavier, military-weight Ventile cotton, this one, with a full lining of West Yorkshire wool-melton.

    [​IMG]

    Then there is the seam jacket jacket, with its detachable hood. Regular-weight Ventile, this time around, with a light cotton lining.

    [​IMG]

    There is a space-grey version, too.

    Off the top of my head, that is that -- but there may well be more over at http://www.sehkelly.com/shop/.

    Thank you. As you were.

    Could you give a rough timeframe for when you will start launching coats this F/W? Winter is coming..

    Evening

    I am glad you asked.

    We have some new peacoats in wool-tweed, to which we are currently putting the finishing touches, and a heavyweight cotton-twill trench coat (wool-melton lined) -- both due in the next couple of weeks.

    A second tranche of heavy woollen garments will come along at the end of October, or thereabouts. Jackets of a one- and two-button nature mostly.

    Knitwear -- very thick jumpers, somewhat lighter jumpers, and cardigans -- is due roughly in between.

    Yes, we are indeed making one or two heavyweight crewneck jumpers in size XS this time around.

    XL too.

    The lighter crewneck and fold-stitch cardigan which we are introducing this autumn, meanwhile, will both begin at size S. They are both fairly neat-fitting in sleeve and body already, you see.

    Besides, best to test the waters and all that ...

    Hope that helps.

    Hey Paul,

    Is there still a tweed mac in the offing this year?

    Think I read a couple of pages up you were considering putting one into production.

    Thanks.

    Nope -- the wool-tweed mac, as it was once known, did not make the cut this year.

    It will most likely begin life instead as a cotton-twill overcoat in the New Year. We made a few important improvements to it, to the cut and pockets and the collar, and it is now a better, more interesting, and more substantial garment.

    What tweed there will be this year is the peacoat (imminent) and then a new SB2 jacket made from wool from the Inner Hebrides (about which I plan to blog in the next few days).

    Ah, shame. I was curious as to what you would do with such a garment.

    Not to worry. Here's hoping we get to see some Donegal this year!

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Any time.

    If it wasn't entirely clear in my previous response, this year's peacoat will be made with tweed from County Donegal. Two (or possibly three) colours in the Tetris tweed which we have used previously.

    We also have some deerskin gloves, which make use of the same tweed, too.

    And, on a third County Donegal tip -- we have worked with the little father and son mill, responsible for the above, on some traditional Irish blankets.

    These will all arrive in a little over a couple of weeks, I should think.

    First off the shirt is a couple years old and I am not sure how consistent the fit on their shirts are from year to year (or even shirt to shirt within the same year). That being said I am wearing a medium and am around 5'9", ~160, and 38in chest. I wear medium in most stuff. I am pretty happy with the fit, but it is a little tight in the shoulders.

    The model on their website seems the be about the same size as me, but he wears size small. Just to add a little wrinkle for you.

    Lol yeah I know that guy has almost the same measurements as me I couldn't figure out why the small looked so good. Anyway I emailed paul and he suggested a medium, hopefully it fits (my chest is a 39-40) bc that British pound to canadian conversion is brutal!

    Thanks for getting back to me

    Afternoon folks

    Just a quite quick word to say that we have developed some gloves over the past few weeks.

    They are lined with the finest hand-framed Scottish cashmere this side of Inverness (which covers a lot of territory) and they have a deerskin (from a British tannery) palm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The back of them, meanwhile, is a thick and flecked wool-tweed, much like you see below.

    [​IMG]


    The gloves are hand-cut, stitched together with a combination both of handiwork and 60-year-old Singers, and ought to be ready and online this Friday.

    Over and out.

    Paul
