    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Any plans for XS sized stuff? Because based on the measurements S would still be too large for me.

    We actually already make XS for some of the stores we work with in Japan. The plan is to introduce it online and at our workshop before too long.

    Just ordered my dark grey-green wool tapered trousers and grey Donegal wool-cashmere scarf. Very much looking forward to enjoying them in the inclement weather!

    Fully expect them to be as wonderful as my Tour jacket and corduroy shirt and trousers.

    SEH Kelly is a brand worth following closely (i.e. Twitter and Facebook), as the runs are short and new items are introduced frequently.

    What a beautiful peacoat, Nick. I'm awfully impressed by the attention to every detail, even the yarn. If there's anything I buy over the next few months, I think it has to come from SEHK.

    I've got a few pieces from SEH Kelly and always find the sleeve length just slightly too short to be perfect but long enough to warrant keeping. That peacoat is stunning though and it does seem as if they have increased the sleeve length compared to other jackets of theirs I have purchased when looking at the sizing chart.

    Thank you all for the kind words about the peacoat.

    We are increasing the sleeve-length on all of our garments, starting with the peacoat and encompassing all garments in future.

    Cheers.

    They are fitted, yes. Both the body and arms are narrow.

    We will have some photos of them being worn by the weekend.

    In the meantime, the mannequin (with a 38" chest) is wearing a size small. There is a shirt worn underneath, and it is a comfortable fit with plenty room to move and breath (were the mannequin able). With a thick jumper underneath, the small would not suffice — it'd have to be a medium.

    The measurements of the garments on our site are all done by hand, and are precise, so if in doubt, you should fine them a reliable guide.

    SEH - Not yet a custom (it's currently 41 degrees celcius here in rural Australia!), just wanted to say I often find your clothes exceptional, and looking at that shawl sweater currently available, well, I'm dreaming of weather cool enough to order it!

    Keep up the great work,

    Your admirer,

    Loner!

    As there are no fit-pictures so far in this thread, I will humbly offer up a couple of snaps of myself wearing SEH Kelly items...

    First up, the Tour jacket (which I always thought fit me really well, but on the photos appears to have really long arms?). The second shows the light green cord trousers (the same colour as the Tour jacket).

    The sleeve-length of the tour jacket (above) are the same as the peacoat.

    On most people (sorry Nick) they are standard length ... although we have found with some larger customers that they are somewhat short, and thus we are extending them, in future, by between 1-2cm.

    Great looking coat! Next time I'm in London town, I'm going to visit your studio.

    The mediums are already sold out! Are you going to be making anymore?

    Sorry, no -- no more will be made.

    Thank you to all for the kind words. Much appreciated.

    That's profoundly disappointing. Moment I saw it written up in the telegraph I knew it would go fast.

    Think next time you may think of a larger run. Youre getting to much press just to make six. If someone cancels on a medium do send me a PM!

    Yep, will certainly let you know about the M.

    The uncertainty of the hand-weaving cloth project at its outset, coupled with the time-consuming nature of the process, meant that fewer peacoats were made than might've otherwise been the case.

    Having said that, it is not our way to make many of any particular garment anyway. But with time, yes -- hopefully we'll be able to keep the factory busier.
