A few more pics for you. These are my summer / short Cabourn pieces. Higgson jacket. Not sure if this is the correct name. It's a reversible jacket, maroon ventile on one side and Fox brothers tweed on the other. The cuffs and hem are wool. It's a superb Spring / Autumn jacket, keeps a shower off and the wind out whilst keeping you very warm. Ventile Tweed German Flight Jacket Submarine ventile jacket, from the utility range, probably the first aircraft...
Spring Summer due soon according to END, just had a email from them; We have two North-East neighbours landing at END. Waxwear specialist Barbour drop more pieces from a range of their premium lines while outerwear don Nigel Cabourn preps his SS14 range, due to land very soon!
I remember being aware of Nigel Cabourn for his early 90's sports wear, very "casual", if you know what I mean. I used to go down to London once or twice a year for clothes and I bought two shirts and a sweatshirt from a shop in Covent Garden. Pretty sure it wasn't Nigel's shop because it was opposite the Michiko Koshino shop and that's not the same place as described by others. This was around 91 / 92. I still have them and they have lasted well, but are beginning...
The trench coat was SS 2009, I think. It was available in navy blue also.
A few pictures for you, my Cabourn Identity; Black Taffy Parka Everest Trench Coat Green Pea Coat Duffle Summer Stone Parka Camera Man Took advantage of a half decent day today. These are my long / winter coat's. I've a few short summer coats, jumpers, trousers, shirts and other bits and pieces, to follow at some point.
I've done that before also, I like the blue shirt jacket; http://www.manufactum.de/nigel-cabourn-hemdjacke-doppelgewebe-p1466878/?a=43653 There's a few "cabourn" items on the http://www.manufactum.co.uk/ website as well.
Depends on how tall you are, Flannels have a couple of Parkas; http://www.flannels.com/nigel-cabourn-cold-weather-parka-601468
It looks like one of Nigel's original vintage garments. It's probably what the current "taffy" or "cold weather parka" is based on. You can see the dropped fishtail, external belt, large buttons with hidden zip and the wool lining. All of which are present on the current parkas.
I think Aero Leather did some of the sheepskinshttp://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/index.php
Eric, Welcome to my home town of Dundee. We could have met up and compared some Cabourn, even though you don't know me and I'm a complete stranger. The Discovery is fantastic I would encourage anyone to visit, especially as Scotland is the third best place to visit in the world, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-24712473 How anybody could have lived in those condition and stayed in the Antarctic for years trapped in the ice is amazing.
