Hi - anyone here know where I can still get a pair of the Cabourn denim work jeans (indigo)? They bear a similarity to the Rising Sun "Blacksmith" jean - anyone know if this was an inspiration for the Cabourn item? I notice Nigel himself is often pictured wearing the work jean - check out the instagram of him at Wimbledon. Last question: do any insider-knowledge people know if the workwear jean is going to feature in AW14?   I've got to say, the style in which NC wears...
Came very close to buying the army denim Mallory on a number of occasions, even back at full price, but it bothered me that the Ventile looked too bright. A shade darker and I'd have bought one ages ago. Looks great on NC's website, but of course it would, because he uses a great photographer. Not hugely into the pictures of the forthcoming grey AW14 Mallory - looking forward to seeing what other colours this item appears in for AW. Anybody know?
Hopefully the shop will have the knock-on effect of an overhaul of his rather clunky website.
It does resemble the sort of thing you see in a sample sale. I've recently been to a Margaret Howell sample sale and a lot of the items had unusual labelling and unfinished or basic detailing. Naturally these pieces should only be sold as samples, not as the real thing.
That £150 t shirt is a total joke. And I'm a big Cabourn fan. But deary me, the random price generator needs recalibrating.
That's a real shame. My view on the Camerman is that when you lose the tweed section it can look rather ordinary.
Spotted this collaboration piece for SS14.   http://www.bucketsandspadesblog.com/2014/02/nigel-cabourn-for-armor-lux-menswear-henley-ss-2014.html
My PS used to roll up twice on the turn-up. After I cold washed them, they only roll up once. That's about an inch shrinkage. 
APC recommend adding a dash of Woolite Black into a cold soak if you're washing them and are bothered about colour loss. Some people want the colour to fade, some don't. I'm a half-and-half. I don't want them completely faded but I want some character. I cold soaked and they still look like raw denim.
