SEH Kelly Raglan Shirt
SEH Kelly has been busy behind the scenes lately, carefully creating the nexus between spring and summer for their young line. This half-hidden placket, pinpoint cotton oxford, takes it to the next level with the inclusion of raglan sleeves– a feature not typically seen on a shirt in this material. Specifically made with a club collar, it references the silhouettes in their already solid line-up. I asked Paul about their decision to go with this fabric for the shirt.
"It's a simple garment, really. We had access to the cotton pinpoint from a mill we've wanted to work with for a long time. It is traditionally a more formal shirting fabric, so we thought using it for a more casual garment and deciding to wash it, to soften it around the edges, would shed a different light on the fabric -- and produce an interesting shirt as well."
"Not for nothing do raglan shirts fit so well with better weather — scrap the yoke and the shoulder seams and things get immediately airier. This raglan shirt is made from a fine Cumbria-woven cotton pinpoint, the discipline of a good wash softening up its characteristic crispiness."
