 Let's not have all that many illusions about who has sold out. I think Nigel lost his major stake in his company after a couple of bankrupcies many years back. The guys in Japan that own the "Nigel Cabourn Mainline" and the six shops own a big part of the company now. As far as I can tell from a cursory search, Nigel owns 40% and a mysterious Abahouse owns the rest. So I have little doubt that all the price hiking, new brands, collaborations, women's line (which I...
They make the Lybro stuff wherever it's cheap and reasonable to make it, which is why we see this saving reflected in the down to earth pricing of the new gear. A lot of it is made in Hong Kong, in a factory that has been collecting special and vintage sewing machines for many years. Which should mean something, or at leas they hope it does. Personally I'm thinking the whole Lybro idea is just the backers behind the brand wanting more gear to sell. The backers of course...
My understanding was that the Mallory would be slimmer in the body, no mention of the length of it changing.   The move away from using Drew as the sample model can only be a good thing, as he is a skinny beanpole indeed (and jockeys as well, which gives you an idea), so maybe sizing may become a little more regular now that one of the shop guys is also being used?
Having had a closer look through the new stuff I'm quite pleased to say that I see nothing at all that tickles my fancy. Maybe the farm pants, but that's despite the photos, as they look bloody awful on the guy modelling them.   I was expecting more from the Lybro collection, but it looks like a lot more recycled designs at a price point that is merely overpriced.   Anyone else see differently?
The guys in the shop said that this seasons Mallory would be re-cut to a slimmer fit.
I was about to comment that the photography and presentation was much improved over old, but then I started taking notice of the skinny model. Hmm.
Hadn't noticed that overshirt yet. Looks nice. I bought one of the new lambswool shirts earlier this summer (in preparation for Autumn, mind you). Put a wear-photo on my Instagram. Wearing a large, usually take a medium.   https://instagram.com/p/4d7EdxP9p1/?taken-by=welldresseddad
A new Cabourn review from me: The AW14 Farm Vest   http://welldresseddad.com/2015/09/02/waistcoat-wednesday-nigel-cabourn-farm-vest/
If anyone has a pair of the brown corduroy Farm pants in sz 34, or knows of a pair for sale, please do let me know...
To my thinking bobble-hats are for kids... A grown man with a pom-pom? Nah.
