S.E.H Kelly is a new name to me, but one that I’m sure to remember and will be keeping a close eye on. This drop introduces a smart, heavy overshirt design to their collection.
With a background in Savile Row tailoring, it’s no surprise that S.E.H Kelly are pushing the understated, clean designs that British tailoring is known for. This overshirt is no exception to this and lands somewhere in between tailored elegance and workwear styling. The amount of attention to detail within design in this product is incredible – take the pocket hem for example, that looks like a waist belt from a distance, the way the shirt stops perfectly around t-shirt level, the slight difference in texture between the collar and the body and the whole fit in general. It’s a delightful product to look at.
Made from a mid-weight cotton-panama, unlined and with welted seams, this overshirt is of a sturdy construction that will stand the test of time. The entire garment is made in England, including all the materials. The cotton-panama is made in a mill in Lancashire and the off-white corozo nut buttons are made in the Midlands. Long live the UK! With such a strong introduction to the brand, I’m looking forward to seeing more and more and watching how the brand develops in the future.
Both colours are available now from S.E.H Kelly for £175.
