S.E.H Kelly Ventile jacket
A couple of weeks ago I popped out to East London to meet up with Paul and Sara from S.E.H Kelly, who kindly took me through their next collection (it’s excellent). And whilst there I got to try on lots of new pieces, of which one was this – their new Ventile jacket.
Following their minimalist aesthetic, it’s a short jacket with a minimum of fuss and some great features. The main one is the fully detachable hood which buttons to the collar at the sides and back. It’s a structured affair with a small peak at the front and an optional two-button chin-guard for full weather resistance.
The jacket also features a large collar with rounded points that’s shaped to taper around the neck, and a four-button ‘fly front’ which means that the top button is visible whilst the remaining buttons on the placket are hidden when the garment is fastened. Buttons as usual are real corozo – large ones on the jacket’s front, and smaller on the inside and to attach the hood to the collar.
The seam which runs all the way around the jacket conceals a pair of large patch-pockets, which can also be accessed from the side, and the entry points of these have been bar-tacked for extra strength. Inside the jacket is a large patch-pocket with button fastening, bound seams and a ‘buggy’ half-lining in a brushed, off-white cotton.
