Thanks a lot. Thinking of giving it a chance... but would hate ruining a Cabourn jacket, especially because it's beige... If I go for it, I will keep you posted with pics. One more thing: The jacket is unlined, so wouldn't waxing it be uncomfortable to wear? I would consider getting a liner for it, e.g. a thin down jacket that can be sewn or buttoned into it.
To be very honest: I really like the gray Mallory, I am a big fan of the new oilcloth Everest - however, the brown/blue colour mix is not mine at all...
In case anyone is interested in a Donkey sample jacket at a great price: http://www.alexanderleathers.com/sale/donkey-jacket.html Besides, I was wondering whether anyone has any experience with waxing (Cabourn) cotton jackets? I picked up a double breasted jacket from Marrkt about 1.5 years ago, which is made from heavy cotton and very much looks like the jacket below. As I am not 100% happy with it, I was considering to wax it myself to make it ready for the rainier...
The seller knows Nigel personally and also the guys from Superdenim... so he gets further discounts. I am quite jealous I must say :)
I am sure this jacket isn't yours...
I picked up a crazy cameraman from Yoox for 220€ including shipping... :O really excited!!
I was about to buy the TEN C short parka about a year ago, but was so put off by the comments that I didn't... The fabric is incredible, very much like a rough lotus leave and stiff as hell... Love it
The B7 is not comparable to the Coastal Command. The B7 was for the ground crew, whereas the Coastal command is based on the RAF jackets, which were worn by the pilots themselves - those ones re shorter and different in style and fit. Essentially the Coastal Command is a longer RAF jacket with a hood added to itself and pockets being added (which is, however, not in line with the original Coastal Command). Btw, for those who want to avoid buying expensive paint from Aero...
Whats the raincoat looking like? I can only remember the long one with the us army clips from a couple of seasons ago...
WOW, really looks like a revival of the coastal command jacket... I like it a lot. I have it in black myself, amazing jacket, but very difficult to wear. I am somehow much more into AW collections than the SS ones - I am a big fan of wool, leather and all this heavy materials.
