The Making Of: British Garments with @sehkelly
To see how clothes go from the factory to the shop window, follow @sehkelly on Instagram.
Based in their East London workshop, designers Paul Vincent and Sara Kelly started the menswear company in 2009. They source cloth and makers from 15-20 British locations—from a Mohair mill in West Yorkshire to a one-man mill in North London and a family-son tweed mill in Country Donegal, Ireland.
"What is most important to us is transparency," says cofounder Paul. "The places we visit—be they fabric mills, brass foundries, glove-makers or garment factories—are often so interesting, and the work they do so wonderful that it seems a waste not to show it to the world. We hope, in some small way, to inspire an interest in the making process, not necessarily craft or handmade work, but the simple nuts and bolts of industry around the British Isles doing its very excellent thing."
