 This is something I've been wondering about for a while... Maybe the problem with Cabourns random sizing isn't that he can't properly size garments at all, but that he has his own idea of how his garments should be warn, and this deviates quite dramatically in many cases from how we feel clothing should fit? This very much came to light when there was talk of the AW13 duffles, where the general agreement was that the fit was quite monstrously huge. Yet rare reported...
