The Tour Jacket MK.II by S.E.H Kelly
The good folk at S.E.H Kelly have done it again, this time producing a masterpiece of a jacket, The Tour Jacket MKII. It’s a stunning piece of outerwear for the spring and summer months that is made out of a dusty green-coloured 11-way corduroy, slightly lighter than most corduroys to cater for the warmer weather. This specific fabric was made at a mill in Lancashire, England which they co-operate with on a regular basis.
Other elements include unique real horn buttons, internal chest patch-pocket with slim pencil compartment and an internal strap. These straps run from both side-seams and through a loop at the neck, basically it can be worn like a backpack when out and about. One thing I specifically like about this piece, and maybe you’ll agree too, is the patch pockets on the front of the jacket are actually dual use. You can either access them from the top or slide your hands in from the side, slouch pockets. I thought this was really smart and gave it a whole different feeling, very functional indeed.
The nice thing about S.E.H is their attention to detail and how they get creative with both the inside and the outside of their garments, you always find unusual elements, which I guess is the good thing about independents who have full control over their work. I always call this sort of clothing “architectural” as it speaks for itself and can be interpreted by the user. The structure and form is also very much key. Scroll down for more images of the jacket, I would also recommend heading towards the S.E.H Kelly website to find out more. It’s currently available to purchase in their online store.
