S.E.H Kelly Hopsack tweed jacket

October 14, 2011

Made from stouthearted hopsack tweed which is sourced from a mill just outside Manchester, this jacket from S.E.H Kelly is subtle affair and one that demands closer inspection to see the beauty and texture of the cloth from which it’s made.

Hopsack is a lightweight and warm fabric, and it’s one that seems to be much less common than it should be. The open weave of grey, black and brown yarns is slightly coarse but makes for a hard wearing cloth and one that’s absolutely perfect for the Winter months.

Packed full of detailing, the jacket at first seems very plain and simple with a covered placket and single exposed top button but what you don’t see are the plethora of pockets (all six of them) that are built into the jacket – from the neat chest pocket through to a pair of inseam slouch pockets, to the large (A4 sized) document pocket on the jackets interior, which fastens via a pair of real horn buttons.

The cut is short and the covered placket folds down when open to look like a normal lapel, which in turn gives the jacket two very distinct looks between its two states – open it bears a passing resemblance to a blazer and when fully done up is a very uncluttered piece of outerwear. Lovely stuff as usual.

    SEH Kelly are doing some good stuff. And they’re doing it right getting the quality and product as they want it. Not running before they can walk. They will be going form strength to strength too.

    They’re on a bit of a roll this lot aren’t they. Not put a foot wrong yet imo and I don’t think they will either. The new overshirts are well nice and so is this. Will be getting one of ’em, just not sure which.
