1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    That's great. Surely the acid test for any self-respecting collar.

    A rather late reply, but — we're planning to make the balmacaan again in heavy Donegal tweed, similar to those we made the winter before last. A couple of colours of said tweed are now in work.

    Thank you. Very pleased to hear it.

    It is a wonderful cloth. Shirt cloth is something we often approach from an unusual angle, on account of there being no shirting mills left in Britain (ergo no oxfords, poplins, and all the usual suspects).

    I hope to continue using the cloth, perhaps with one other colour, year on year.

    I'll drop you a PM regarding your enquiry.

    My major issue is that everything is sold out when I want to buy it :) Slightly frustrating.

    Here's another shirt we've been working on.

    It's our raglan shirt — more relaxed than the hemp one above, and with a half button-through / half concealed front — and is made with a linen woven in Northern Ireland.

    It's a very faint glen-check, which I seldom see in linens of this ilk. A sort of slate-blue.

    What with the onslaught of baltic conditions this past week in London, we have been holding off even mentioning our new spring-friendly attire, but hey -- you can't wait forever.

    Sorry to hear that, but if there's anything you have your eye on, seemingly sold out, you can always enquire with me, as sometimes we have one-offs here at the workshop which are not online.

    Or perhaps they're sold out when you look online, but five minutes later, another customer returns it and it comes back into stock.

    For such events, I keep a log of customer enquiries.

    There's always the dynamic size-specific pages, too -- e.g. http://sehkelly.com/small or http://sehkelly.com/xl -- which show whats available in a given size at that precise moment.

    Thanks for that XL link - saw that the linen shirts were available and immediately bought one.

    I do find it funny that you are essentially the only online retailer I know of that doesn't have a newsletter (as far as I can tell) and you're also about the only one that I would read religiously.

    Thank you very much.

    I'll have it wrapped and on its way on Monday.

    Funnily enough, we do have a newsletter. There's a sign-up box at the foot of the website (I did contemplate a pop-up the very second anyone visits the website, but then had a stern word with myself).

    I send them once a month. Something of a marketing-phobe myself, so I steer it towards the personal and conversational as much as I can. On balance, and to allay any worry that you've been missing out, I'd suggest here or one of the social media are better places to stay up to date with what we're making or releasing.

    Is there any way to use a Visa gift card as partial payment on the site?

    The Visa side of things is fine, but I'm not sure about the partial payment.

    Still, there's always a way. Please, email paul@sehkelly.com, and I'm sure we can work it out.

    A few more photographs of the new glen-check raglan shirt mentioned the other day.

    The linen is from reportedly the oldest mill in Linenopolis — that is to say, the area of Northern Ireland just outside Belfast where a century ago every other building was flax-oriented. Wonderful stuff.

    You know, I can't think of a cloth we've used that has drawn so much admiration ...

    We've been working with the mill for a grey / charcoal version of the same material, possibly for use this autumn. It's very much along the same lines, only, well ... grey, and with the occasional fleck of beige and brown. The topcoat seems a good candidate for it again, since it seems to have been fairly well received. Another coat or jacket, too, possibly: probably a shorter one.

    One thing I learned about the cloth is that there's a small amount of cotton yarn woven into it. Serves no practical purpose, so the weaver tells me, and there's no pure-minded rational reason for it; it's just that mill since establishment has always made cloth that plays with composition (such as the cotton-wool-linen with which we made http://www.sehkelly.com/work-jacket-hand-woven-blue-wool-linen-check/) .

    That was the plan.

    Time has got rather the better of me so far this year, and so I've been prioritising the Japan side of our SS17 production, at the expense of the side we make for our workshop / website.

    Thus they're running a couple of weeks behind.

    Happy to drop you an email or message when they're ready though, if you'd like?

    Please would there be any chance of a single breasted top coat in this material with those nice handwarmer pockets? Something to wear on its own over a shirt to go straight from overheated office into the great outdoors while retaining the easy ability to plunge hands into trouser pockets with the coat undone at the front?
