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... :-)
  Any link to the new NC ones? I have army and navy variants already, would very much like to find a pair of tan ones. In a similar style at least.   I'm guessing these are the ones? http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/nigel-cabourn/nigel-cabourn-workwear-braces-83963.html   The embossing is on the inside. These are exactly the same as previous years ones.
  These are the guys that have them, Labour & Wait (http://www.labourandwait.co.uk/). They only have the one style of trouser though, and one style of jacket, plus one womans style of wraparound dress. Can't find mention of it on the website though.
  Impossible to say, as there is often such a discrepancy between marked size and actual size. Nigel himself appears to favour his fitting super-loose, but going by the marked size they tend to be pretty damn tight around the butt. I would tend to frown upon buying an expensive, distinct pair of trousers like these only to totally change their look.   In case you hadn't already considered it though, I'll offer up something you might not have considered... When in London 2...
  To be honest, I'm not totally sure. They're certainly odd. And cool. And a bit of strange as well. They're sort of like my EG Oslo pants, in the wooliness and loose fit. But even more so. I feel pretty self-conscious whilst wearing them. And a bit stylin' as well :-)   I think what I'm trying to say is: They take a little getting used to.   Plus they attract dog-hair like crazy, and my Corgi sheds like crazy. A match made in hell if there ever was one.
  My thinking is that if you're not going to wear them as they were made, why buy them? Of course, I do wonder about the sense in this point of view when I'm wandering around in my tweed Bombay pants. I do not feel as dapper as the model at Superdenim looks! :-) (http://www.superdenim.co.uk/feature-detail.asp?featureid=24)  
Wow, I started chuckling at the photo of Nigel and the trousers (then I noticed he was just holding them up in front of him and managed to rein it in a little), then my eyes fell upon the German pilot! Massive chortle! We're not talking the macho men of the Luftwaffe here, more like a failed audition for the Willage Pfeople! (work with me on that one...)   Drew looks pretty cool though.
