    Ha.

    They do a certain dystopian bionic quality to them, don't they?

    Afternoon folks

    It would remiss of me not to quickly point out that our new deerskin gloves are now finished ...

    The palm is deerskin from Britain's foremost gloving-leather tannery, the trank is wool-tweed from north-west Ireland, and the innards are natural-colour cashmere. Cosy things, all told, assembled in the crucible of English glover-making.

    As you were.

    Hello all

    I write this from the Dieter Rams-designed confines of Vitsoe, on Duke Street, here in London.

    We have a one-week residency here, at the Vitsoe showroom, which makes us a little more accessible (and findable) than our usual whereabouts.

    They had this issue before with a few users and I never figured out what happened with it. Doesn't work on my phone or my work computer, with multiple browsers.

    Hello Styleforum

    Back in the middle of summer, which seems a very long time ago indeed, we visited a mill in the Inner Hebrides.

    What they weave there is notable for being made from the yarn of sheep reared and sheared on the land. Heritage breeds of mostly regional sheep. Undyed. Organic. Woven in a loom shed that sits beside the shearing shed. Rather special, all told.

    The first garments to use the cloth are a casual, half-lined SB2 jacket, and matching trousers.

    There are matching trousers, too.

    The black-brown in the cloth is the yarn of Hebridean sheep; the grey is the yarn of the same breed of sheep, but a little older in age.

    Sheep going grey -- who knew?

    Paul

    P.S. The site being down -- tricky if not impossible to put a finger on, but no one else has reported anything unusual of late (sorry).

    Hey Paul,

    How heavy is this cloth (oz or g both work for me.) It looks like a pretty sturdy, hardy, cloth?

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    You know, the metric weight of a cloth doesn't often come up, the way we work, with the smaller mills. Maybe we just never ask ...

    It is mid- to heavy-weight, and very dense, and a little on the dry and hairy side. Still, a little softer than your typical Harris tweed, such is the nature of the yarn and the type of finishing.

    I would say 500-500gsm, but I will ask the mill (about time) to get an exact measurement.

    Paul

    Hmmm... So, and I realize that you may not do this, but would you bit willing to do some personalization, like putting hidden snap closures on the back vent, sort of the way a Barbour vent can close up?

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I am afraid we're not really set up for personalisation and that sort of thing, dear Fok ...

    ... although we'd be happy to supply you with the necessary brass popper fastenings (if indeed that's the sort of thing you have in mind). Then all you need to do is find someone local with the right tooling to punch it through the cloth.

    Thinking as I type, paul@sehkelly.com might be the best place to continue the conversation, if you're so inclined.

    It is a thick cloth, especially for a blazer. Very warm.

    Whether you can wear it indoors depends, I suppose, on the temperature of the indoors in question.
