I like it a lot but pricing is once again nuts. £165 for a moody looking T shirt but less for the Button Down..   I've been waiting for a collarless shirt. Was really hoping for a Cabournised British WW1 Greyback but stripes will do.  The smock is a definite for me but I'll be waiting to see if other colours are released. Formal trousers look decent.

Nigel probably should have also mentioned it wasn't made of ventile or even a parka! It was actually a traditional blue anorak (pullover shell) with a kangaroo pocket made by Aquascutum out of Wyncol D711, a...
Manufactum  tweed and Linen now a bit cheaper.
