    The slim trousers look a beaut! They're a perfect mix of a Ralph Lauren cord and my much-adored EG Willy Post pants.

    Any (forthcoming) pics of them worn on a human?

    Much obliged.

    A lot of work went into thinking about and developing them, and an unreasonable amount of work (so we are told) goes into stitching them together.

    I have one or two "worn" images: I aim to put them up later.

    Here we go — a few somewhat hurried photographs of the slim trouser.

    There will be many many more, of course — I very much hope to photograph them at the workshop this time next week.

    Many thanks.

    It would be good to know what people think might be other suitable materials for the slim trouser in future.

    Woollens I don't think would work since the cloth would cling too much to the leg ...

    Should be fine with any fabric of sufficient weight, really.

    Seems like they'd be nice in cavalry twill or covert cloth?

    Those would work really well in a Bedford Cord.

    Funny you should mention covert cloth ("funny" as in, "we will be using covert cloth in a few weeks' time").

    And cavalry twill — I like that stuff very much, but despite that admiration, we've never got around to using it. Thanks for jogging my memory, sir.

    One other garment we've been working on, in addition to the field shirt mentioned above, is a parka.

    We did begin a parka development about a year ago. In fact, we did more than begin: we completed the whole thing, and produced a few for a couple of our stockists in Japan. Something about that parka niggled me, though, in a way that I failed ever to put my finger on -- and so we knocked it down and started again.

    This second one will be simpler in some ways to its ancestor. It has a half raglan, half inset sleeve, which somehow makes more sense and fitting for this context -- more robust, somehow -- than the saddle sleeve on the last one. We will he keeping things "simple to look at but carefully thought-through" with the pockets: there will be four at the front, and one inside.

    Perhaps what this parka will hopefully do best is inject a bit of stature and standing to proceedings. It will have a very high front, and a very wide wrap (not double-breasted, but not far off).

    All being well, we will introduce it later in the year; early winter seems likeliest.

    We've run rather low on the desert (cotton and linen) cotton shirts these past few weeks. Been a bit of a run of them. Can't work out why. And while stocks of them are being refreshed, in comes a brand new shirt material -- a trinity of cotton and linen and wool. A more autumnal one, then, which we wash in a way that brings out the texture of the three fibres (all of which shrink at a different rate, thus bring to the fore of a pleasingly irregular and bobbly quality).

    It is woven in Yorkshire, which isn't the first region from which you'd expect to source shirting. But hey -- a sign of the times, perhaps.

    The first shirts to use this new cloth have a granddad collar. Same faintly fitted body as usual, then, with the sharply tapering dart-at-elbow sleeve, but in this nice and woolly but not skin-goading cloth.

    There's one in alabaster (off-white, for anyone not au fait with our obscure colour lexicon) and midnight blue. Oh -- and http://sehkelly.com/shirts is where they're at.

    I'm suddenly in need of a trench coat. Any chance for a restock in the midnight blue?
