Can anyone comment on the sizing of outerwear? I'm specifically looking at the Harrington, but with a 54cm p2p on a size 0 it seems absolutely enormous. Way too big for true xs / 44?

I think it completely depends on the actual coat unfortunately. I have a duffle overcoat from them from a year or two ago, and it fits quite slim. I found that the measurements they gave me were accurate, if that helps.

Thanks. Yeah, if the measurements are accurate, I unfortunately think it is probably considerably too large. My best fitting coats are 44-46cm, which is pretty typical for an xs, so 54 seems pretty huge.

write them an email they are very helpful.


They are having 50% off sale at the moment, that burgundy JFK sweater is starting to look like a bargain.

Really appreciate how Albam lets you know the origin of the fabric and manufacture (jeans: ' woven in Japan, crafted in England'; weekend jacket: "Italian cotton, beeswaxed in Scotland, while the inner is lined with an English-woven Lambs wool." ). Probably not crucial information for every purchaser, but I want to know this before I buy. In fact I WON'T buy if I feel the manufacuturer is trying to hide this basic information. Compare this to Barbour "of England" which seems to consider the country of origin a state (Queen's?) secret. Probably due to the fact that many "Barbour of England Heritage" items, which often sell for more than their traditional Bedal & Beaufort offerings, are actually made in Thailand, Portugal or Moldova. Which brings me back to Albam, and several coats I'm interested in -- Windcheater, Weekend Jacket, Lightweight Rain Mac, and Reefer Coat. For anyone who has experience with Albam outerwear, particularly these jackets, I'd appreciate your feedback on the garment(s).

Some of albams products are made in Portugal etc.

My Ventile parka fits TTS and maybe a little on the small side.


It's some serious duiscount they are doing at the moment, the JFK went from 165 to 59.

Mr Mudd & Mr Gold in Stockholm has started selling Albam, even though Albam told me a couple months back, that they were going to focus on their own shops and not expand with more retailers. rolleyes.gif

Took advantage of Albam's free international shipping promo & picked up a couple of items I'd been considering. Thanks Albam!

I just got a walk-through of the new Autumn/Winter range.

I was really impressed by the clarity of thinking behind each item; I guess I'm more workwear-oriented so it was items like the jumbo cords that appealed the most to me, but there are also some terrific modern items, like the Rain Duffel, and more traditional stuff, like the Fox Flannels overcoat. Most of all, there's a real integrity to their sourcing - no high price items made in China, like we might find on some other upmarket labels.

Bumping thread as I know in the beginning people were interested in some knits Albam provided from a company called Stevenage. They have the turtle neck on sale:

Also picked up a scarf for the wife.

^ Stevenage knitting closed in 2010. I have a chunky Albam cardigan from them and it's excellent. Shame that capitalism did them in.
post #164 of 189
Yeah, apperantly they are back in business and this is their doing a collab with Albam again. Hoping their quality hasn't slipped.

I have the old one in red with black elbow patches, it's nice, but not shawl collar cardigan nice.

My main (only) issue is that its pretty thin.
