Wow, good find, Zissou! Never even knew those existed!
Basically a jacket needs to have two properties to be warm: a) A solid pocket of immobile air to provide insulation. b) Enough windproofness to allow the insulation to work, and keep heat inside the jacket. The Everest appears to have plenty of point b, but with the amount of down filling and the generally deflated look of it, I can't see how it will insulate well. Unless you have a big sweater on underneath. So, yes, the Everest is a fine piece of retro styling based...
Have you got the massive sweater and beard to go with it?
 It has to be at least along those lines, as it would be naive to imagine anyone is losing money when things to go half price, or even deeper discount. They're just not making a whacking great profit is all.Sure it costs more to use quality fabrics and produce in the UK, but let's not get all dewy eyed. It's a cynical world and I've previously written about the large factory in the Midlands staffed by Latvians that produce a lot of stuff for Mr C.
If your problems is the falling off of frozen nuts, I suggest thermal underwear and wool trousers may be in order! :-) Seriously though, I have a huge problem with the justifications of the Everest that are bandied about. It's the price of a decent used car, fer chrissakes! You could drive yourself and 4 friends around in comfort and warmth and go places for the price of this insanely overpriced and silly jacket. Just to put a little perspective on it. It may be superbly...
 I think the ones from SEH Kelly are the most impressive I have handled and seen. Not cheap by far, but insane quality and thickness.
 It is worth noting that unless you make a prior engagement, End don't keep much, if any, Cabourn in the shop. And their warehouse is now not nearby, so it's not a case of fetching stuff easily. This goes for all their high-end brands. The two small shows they have are really quite disappointing.
In my experience, size up one size for the Mallory waistcoat. I reviewed a couple of Mallory waistcoats and such on my blog, just search for Cabourn on WellDressedDad.com
The word from himself is that the Fairisles are made by Esk Valley Knitwear in Annan, Scotland. Next topic? :-)
 I'm not sure how to interpret this, but I think you're still talking about Cabourns garments for women :-)
