Mind mentioning who those 'new players' carrying Cabourn are?'
I guess everyone got locked into the fight over wether or not the Everst is worth buying... But does anyone own the short vest, and do they have anything to say about it? I'd especially like to know how it compares to the mallory. Seems like the tweed is a bit thinner, but from the pics it doesn't appear to be significantly shorter or to have a lover neckline
Can anyone comment on the donegal short vest? Is fit comparable to mallory vest? What thickness is the tweed? Has anyone tried it with the mallory jacket? Does it go up high enough to be visible? How do you like it overall?
I like the fit as is. Going down a size would be quite slim, and while I like moderate slim fit (or more correctly, properly tailored garment) some of the more extreme slim fitting sport coats just make people look fat and boyish. Also, I'm of the opinion that if you can't physically move in a sport coat as it was once intended (ride a horse and shoot a rifle) then it doesn't fit properly, and I suspect any tighter and you will have trouble lifting your hand high enough to...
Can anyone who owns the Hunter model (not bounty hunter), ideally the insulated, give a few words review? I've been thinking of ordering a pair for outdoors in the upcoming winter but can't find any opinions on the boot? What temperature ranges do you find them comfortable for? Do you feel the insulation affects sizing, or durability? How do you like them overall?
So, at one time tweed, was unthinkable for the city. It certainly doesn't seem to be that way today, and as a tweed lover, I would argue it creates a much nicer look (in season) than most standard suiting wool. I would also argue that outside of work environments with very strict suit codes, it is great for the office, too. But I was thinking about how it used to be inappropriate even just for the city in general, and I thought about the purpose of tweed as a sort of...
Nice! I'd say they went above and beyond on this one. They made it right, and that's good to see. Retailers like Bakers will help prevent any slides in QC if the day ever comes that the new board of directors of the holding company that bought Whites starts to pressure them to cut costs.Unfortunately, I discovered Whites a bit late, after a long time enjoying the british boots like Trickers, so I only have one pair ( farmer/rancher), but I love them and have been planning...
I have items other than bags and jackets. I have shirts, pants, vests and boots. I like everything I have from them with the exception of a pair of knit gloves that the stitching opened up on the first day of use. I did get them on clearance for 5 bucks though, so not that bog of a deal. I try to avoid the outsourced stuff, though I have had good experience with most of it, but I wouldn't pay full price for something not made in the USA.As for accessories, I have the belt,...
True they can be on the slim side, though that works for me, as I usually can size up and get a jacket to my proportions that way. Pants I usually get from other sources anyways, and have found good tweeds and wool twills from Orvis and Bills khakis, though the Woolrich pants I have are not overly slim.Thanks for the William Lennon recommendation. I just may have to give them a try. I wish the surgeons jacket came in a lighter color. I have a charcoal tweed coat...
I like it; I have a Nigel Cabourn small peak jacket coming my way. Do you own that Donegal Surgeons jacket you linked? If so, where's it made? I like the look of it. Very much my style. I own quite a bit of Filson, and I'd recommend almost all of it, though most of their stuff is more casual than your example. Other similar work can be found by woolrich under their Woolrich Woolen Mills label, and by Engineered Garments, and Post Overalls (Post O'Alls). As far as I know...
