Decent deals to be had on the down jackets, but my oh my has that sale been slow... Must be the slowest moving stock yet in a Marrkt sale?
 To my eyes it's too long. Combined with the generous turn-ups on your jeans it just goes to visually shorten your legs. I'd tuck the shirt in, and probably go a little easier on the turn-ups. Then again, I do have short legs and am quite aware of this...
 Bombay does seem a silly name, at least for the wool version. Guess it's the same inspiration for the style as the Bombay Bloomer shorts.

I wear Mallorys down to about -15C with a thin lambswool sweater underneath, while cycling. They're pretty warm!   Nick
There's a world of difference between me as a private person posting that I have a jacket for sale and asking to be contacted by PM for details, and commercial vendors (StayClean and Indepencence) posting what amounts to pure advertising, i.e. stock lists with pricing, sizes and numbers available, and photos directly to the forum. If it was just photos, I wouldn't be so down on it, but in combination with the rest, I find it very annoying.   If I am alone in holding this...
It strikes me that this forum is now becoming a sales outlet more than a discussion between enthusiasts. Is it really ok for vendors to advertise like this?
I'm not sure Stay-Clean was entirely up front about his sales. From the remaining ebay-sale for waistcoats (available in all sizes!), we find this text:   "In excellent, unworn condition. They have been sitting boxed in a storage room for the past year. These were part of a large, ultra-rare collection of 50+ NC '12-'13 samples that I am listing for a major NYC showroom over the course of the next month. These includes the 1912 Arctic Expedition as well as the Mainline...
Probably a typo for L28?   http://www.ventile.co.uk/specification.php   I'd be interested to hear from someone who has tried both Mackintosh and Ventile camaraman jackets. Is the Ventile less clammy?
