OK I would try a Cabourn size 50 then
It is available from End clothing and at the new London shop in a dark blue - I don't think it's quite navy but certainly closeI've got the orange parka from AW10 (I think as I'm losing track of the years) in a size 46I paid around £1500 which is what they were thenAre they worth it ?Ventile, goose down, Pertex, sheepskin, RiRI zips, wooden toggles, horn or wood buttons very small numbers, made in EnglandAn iconic recreation of Sir Edmund Hilary's Antarctic coat which he...

What is your chest measurement ?
You are quite right - how sillyNext time I'm sailing in driving wind and the rain, I will default to wearing my three piece suit business suitNext time I'm out in the Morgan in temperatures of less than warm instead of wearing my Coastal Command jacket, I will don my blazerNext time I'm helping in my flood stricken village by helping my neighbours to build up sandbags in the pouring rain, instead of wearing my ventile parka, I'll attire in slacks and a smart white...
Thanks for the postI suppose the original was just an Irvin with a hoodIt's nice as an original but agree it lacks Nigel's woofle dust
