In this instance waterproof was a good thing at least, I've been searching for nice trousers for when the weather turns foul. Trousers that don't look like I'm on my way to a hiking trail or a mountain expedition, sponsored by gore-tex.
That's a niche I've found very few trousers in.

For the people that don't want weatherproof clothing, it's a fair warning that maybe other fabrics might suit them better.
The vast majority of my closet is chosen based on other criteria, this will be my first piece from you that I can think of where I've even considered it.

Fantastic!

I think I *will* add something to the website about the sail-cloth being weatherproof. But a fine line to tread, for sure!

Bittersweet, feels like I bullied you into doing something you were opposed to!

On another note I'd like to bother you with the same question as always. Could you please tell us what more you have lined up for this month?

In the next month, all being well ...

We'll have made a good bunch of new shirts. There's some moleskin, some corduroy, some super-fine merino (my favourite) and some thick white oxford-like cotton (the cotton spun in England, which doesn't happen every day, and in fact hasn't really happened at all for at least a half-century).

We've tweaked the shirt a little, and have introduced some new collars. We are trying out the collars now, and so long as they work out as planned, we'll have at least two new ones on the site before September. (And if they don't work out, it's granddads all the way!)

Perhaps the field shirt in tweed.

Also perhaps, hopefully, the duffle coat and / or peacoat.

It's all a little up in the air, as half of the mills and factories with whom we work are on full or partial holiday this month. Plus the pandemic.

Thanks! So nothing more this month? Then I hope you haven't shipped my trousers yet...

No! That's ALL this month. August.

Ideally.

I think the shirts are a shoo-in; the rest, we'll see.

And the trousers and jacket will leave London together, tomorrow, if that's okay. (Sorry forum: will DM next time.)

Sounds great, and hope we get to hear more about the shirts soon.

Received my Tielocken last week. Paul's hand-typed letter was appreciated, as is the craftsmanship of the coat. It is indeed a large, bathrobe-style garment, even at my height (6'3"), which is precisely what I was going for. Despite being an XL it manages to remain tailored in the arms, shoulder and and body. The canvas-lined pockets are a nice touch, and I've already made use of the matching tote. I look forward to pulling this out this winter.

Great to hear.

The tielocken is a favourite of mine.

The pocketing we use these days is the same cloth we use for our most staple shirt — e.g. https://www.sehkelly.com/shirt-with-granddad-collar-in-desert-cotton-in-ecru/. It is very tough cloth!

I am patiently waiting for the peacoat :3 Hopefully the next tielocken has a color similar to malt. It feels extremely cozy imo ._.

Wish I could pull off the tielocken and similar garments. The trench coat in bedford cord is one of my favourite garments ever to look at. But I just can't imagine myself wearing one, the fault lying entirely with me of course.

Funnily enough, especially the trench — or rather, *a* trench; trenches in general — I classify as being good on almost everyone.

Certainly the one-piece raglan sleeve is entirely physique-agnostic!

Are there any plans for more cardigans this season? No more XS 😭 + Anyone who has the piece can share how the pockets fare? Like putting smartphone.

Sorry — the cardigan is taking a rest for at least the rest of the year.

(For what it's worth, the pockets are very deep, and a mobile phone is the least of its storage potential. You'd have to bend over to the point of being upside-down for it to tip out.)
