Ah, it apears I can answer my own questions, and I was right... :-)   There is one for sale on eBay and the guy has included the original tags with both the jacket name and the code for it:   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Authentic-Nigel-Cabourn-England-Wide-Lapel-Jacket-Navy-Cashmere-Size-48-/171664411752?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27f7ff0c68  
Would anyone happen to know which jacket has the code nc-w13-jk-10? It's a green herringbone cashmere jacket, but we're unable to decide which model it is. As in, I think it's the wide lapel jacket, with 3 buttons, silk lining etc, but my opponent thinks it looks somewhat different in the way it hangs and the length. The wide lapel does look very different on the Cabourn and Corniche...
Based on the images they post on their Instagram feed, these guys look to be absolute wonders:   http://instagram.com/otters_oilskins_uk   http://www.otters-reproofingservices.co.uk/   They also seem to be very much cheaper than the other two prices mentioned!
Try Maritime & Antiques in Copenhagen: http://www.maritime-antiques.dk/sale-c-76.html A great shop in it's own right. Also an excellent source of Mister Freedom, though not on sale. http://welldresseddad.com/2014/03/17/while-in-copenhagen-maritime-antiques/
According to the sizing guide at http://www.hansengarments.com/pages/size-guide you'll be a small. I'd be hesistant to compare directly to Cabourn though without taking a tape measure to the trousers marked 32". In my experience almost every trouser made is an inch or two more than marked. We're easily tricked, vain fools that we are.
 I'd recommend taking a look at Hansen Garments in Denmark. Super-quality and cut, and with the right dark, vintage style. hansengarments.com (and for 50% off right now use code 2WKSALE. Actuall, being something of a Hansen fan, I'm awaiting delivery of my 5th pair right now. I've also mentioned them a few times on the...

 I don't think what people post here is statistically significant, to be honest. It's like on Tripadvisor, people are more likely to post some whiney rant than a review saying place X was quite satisfactory.
 End have one at 599 right now... http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/nigel-cabourn/nigel-cabourn-classic-cameraman-jacket-227512.html
The "Utility" line was a line designed for high-street retailers Debenhams over a three-year period a few years ago. While the influence and basic look are the same (the story-label inside the "Utility" jacket sounds just like the backstory for the Everest), that is where the similarity ends. These are not of the same quality as the post-2003 Nigel Cabourn, even if they look superficially the same and have been sold in the same period.
