Hey, thanks but I'm pretty familiar with raw denim, my question was more about these jeans in particular. With unsanforized, I obviously always wash or soak before wearing but with sanforized, like these gustins, I find that some pairs shrink a little and some pairs stay exactly the same. Is there any shrinkage at all expected in the gustins? If so, I'll wash before getting them hemmed, if not, I'll get them hemmed immediately. Cheers.
Have just received my first pair of Gustin jeans, the #60 Light Lefthand's. They're very tight around the topblock but because the material is only 10oz, they stretched out quite easily with only a few minutes of wear. My question is, what's the consensus on washing before wearing? I know they're sanforised but should I expect any shrinkage at all? Am going to get them hemmed and usually wash or soak jeans first just in case. Sorry if this has already been asked but I've...
I have a brand new and tagged, Wide Lapel Jacket in stone Harris tweed in size 52 that I'm looking to move on. http://www.endclothing.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/171774/s/nigel-cabourn-wide-lapel-jacket/category/112/ It's slimmer across the chest than the Mallory but is unlined so I would say this would work best for a 40" to 42" chest depending on how you like it to fit. Would accept £450, any interest?
How does the 82 fit? I am 10.5F on the 888 last and a 10.5E in most other Northampton shoes.
Is it me doing something wrong or is the website down? I can only access the signup page but not any of the shopping pages
I am a 40" chest and have a 50 Mallory. It fits snug but well. You should only size up if you like a loose fit.

I don't mind vendors posting as long as they include photos and don't spam with dozens of posts. I subscribe to this thread to keep up to date with all things Cabourn, read other people's opinions and look at photos but I am also happy to find out about pieces for sale. If a post in this thread leads me to the last available size 50 Everest Parka in indigo at 50% off, I really don't care if it is a private or corporate seller...
I'm looking for a chunky "fisherman" style jumper with a roll-neck in a grey or cream colour with some texture to it. I'm interested in this one: http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/barbour/barbour-coleman-roll-neck.html by Barbour x Norton but at this price, I figure I may have other options. I only plan on buying one and wearing it for a good few years so I don't mind paying for quality. Is the Barbour a good option or are there better choices I should look at?
