Added my very nice brown Mallory waistcoat to my for-sale listings:   http://www.styleforum.net/t/339928/nigel-cabourn-mallory-waistcoat-rare-aw10-brown-harris-tweed-sz-52
Rare and sought after Brown Harris Tweed Mallory waistcoat by Nigel Caburn. 100th Anniversary of the Harris Tweed "Orb" symbol. In perfect condtion, only worn a few times.   Size 52, but Cabourn waistcoats are typically small, so it will fit a size 50 perfectly.   Also the same waistcoat in blue herringbone Harris Tweed. Same price.   Lovely, immaculate waistcoast, but having lost weight I need to replace some of my wardrobe.   Airmail shipping within...
Blog post abut the Mallory jacket, history and design influences up now. Thanks to Eric and taiAtari for input!   http://welldresseddad.com/2013/03/09/icons-nigel-cabourn-the-mallory-jacket/
  Actually better than I feared :-) Have you perfected the rather mincing walk of the proper Luftwaffe pilot as well? ;-)
Good stuff, taiAtari!
I'll be doing a second Cabourn blogpost shortly, this time about the Mallory and Tenzing jackets. Lots of good historical info to go with them, such as the story of Mallorys ill-fated Everest attempt in 1924, and the video of them finding his body near the peak in 1999 (still wearing all his tweed etc). Tenzing of course was Sir Edmund Hillarys sherpa when they successfully reached the peak in 1953.   So why is there no Hillary-jacket? Or does that just not sound...
In case anyone might be interested, I did a blog-post about the Cameraman:   http://welldresseddad.com/2013/03/01/icons-nigel-cabourn-cameraman-jacket/
  A few more glimpses of the blazer on my blog (including slightly reworked version of text from above):   http://welldresseddad.com/2013/03/03/visiting-the-seh-kelly-workshop/   This would be the blazer that now has a slightly more fitted style, to cater for more American taste.
  I'm 5'6" (1.72). I think I need to have a photo taken of me in the Bombays. From what I can tell I may look like a cartoon character. Would be nice to have it confirmed that it ain't so!   Do we need to start discussing the best options for shorties?
  I love my Tour jacket... :-)
