Anyone know of anywhere stocking a 46 in the indigo Big Shirt?   Also - Cabourn is having a dead stock sale in Jesmond, Newcastle, UK on 26/27 May.
 Some of those price reductions are pretty drastic - e.g. £700 down to £210. Much of the collection could be from any old designer. I don't think this collaboration has really worked. 
 I find the very light toned jackets wear in well and look good, but can be unforgiving when it comes to little marks and spots etc. Once done, they stay put basically, and trying to do something about them can make it worse. This is of course just normal wear over a period of time but some people can be upset about things like that on an expensive jacket. 
 When the new shop opened, I was looking forward to seeing a large range of Cabourn on display. As you say, they've elected not to put any out. Slightly baffling. Maybe they don't want it being handled. But even in the now defunct small shop they occasionally had three or four Cabourn items on the racks.  I think End should look into making design changes to the store. Not architectural ones, necessarily, but it needs something to 'warm it up'. I agree with the observation...
SS12 - thanks. It was unmistakably a Cabourn jacket. I'd have spotted a rip off, no bother.
 All in the eye of the beholder... I saw a guy wearing that yellow-topped Cameraman a couple of years back in Newcastle and it looked excellent on him. I'd like to know the season it's from - looked old. His friend had a navy Mallory on. Not often you see two Cabourn items in the street side by side... Agree that the blue "camo"-style example is a bit, er, 'individual' though... I've noticed a lot of Camerman rip-offs this year, plus a few Mallory lookalikes. These are two...
Went to Army Gym last weekend. Liked the Authentic stuff very much but wasn't too impressed with the Lybro. Material a bit clunky. The grey Cameraman was very nice up close compared to the pictures, and there are some great Mallorys in there. Sweaters were excellent. The member of staff, who I've not seen in there before, wasn't good. Private conversation with a friend the whole time. They've been excellent on previous occasions though - he could have been a...
The issues with waiting for the sales are a) you might not be able to get the style and size you want; b) you're letting the whole season go buy without wearing the item; c) the psychology of the sale scenario can pressure you into buying an item you don't really want. I think if the general culture with Cabourn followers is to now wait for the sales, that says there's something wrong with the pricing. You shouldn't have to feel a bit of a mug for buying an item you love...
Re: Lybro; I'm expecting better to come from this collection, but at the moment all I'm seeing is MHL by Margaret Howell only not done as well. There seems to be something cheap looking and slightly ill-fitting about the Lybro - and it's not cheap; it's still MHL price range and above. I'm sure Lybro will get better as time goes on though - the underlying inspiration is ideal. Sorry to be negative - I'm also not keen on the photography and modelling these days. I await the...
Personally I'm not a big fan of the womenswear items in that shoot but I usually really like his women's clothing, so I'm prepared to hold judgement. Menswear-wise I'm hoping for better than I've already seen - and I'm sure there will be plenty. Will visit the shop in two weeks time, so hope to see some good items first hand. Not massively inspired by SS16 so far though - although as ever with Cabourn it makes a world of difference to see/handle the items close up.
