Nigel Cabourn - Page 95

post #1411 of 5269
KamChan: I would say the storm parka fits a little larger than other Cabourn items I've had. I have a size 48, but I got 50 in the aircraft jacket, submarine sweater and 4 way roll neck. But I think I could have had a 50 in the storm parka as well, it's a little tight with a thick sweater under. Both would have worked.

Anyone have a Cameraman?  I'm curious about sizing.  I'm a M pretty much everywear, but a bit broad in chest/shoulders.  I take M at J Crew for example.

If you are talking about the FW one, Think you be a 48. I'm a SMALL in Jcrew and I got a 46. Its a little snug with a thicker sweater.

I'm referring to the Yellow/Linen combo that Unionmade goods has. 

 

Thanks, that helps a bit.  J Crews regular fit tee is fitted on me and their wovens are just right.  I like to wear chunky sweaters in Spring though so I'm wondering.  I was thinking 48 myself.

Some SS13 pictures from Pitti. I'm oddly liking those striped cricket jackets this season: http://freizeit.ru/style/choice/pitti-uomo-pervyy-den/#.T-GTll7QVLI.twitter

Also spotted this picture, both the jacket and vest are Cabourn:

End just dropped the linen Mallory (Army) to $395, so jumped on it.  Not sure why the natural color is still at $525 but I prefer the army anyway.

Cultizm just dropped theirs to half price, too.

I figured they would.  Just a matter of time, I guess.

If you are a medium I'd go for a 48 in the lined Cameraman, here's a pic of me in my AW 2011. I take a 50 in most Cabourn garments (Mallory, Aircraft, Tenzing, Surface jacket, all shirts) but found 50 in the Cameraman too baggy. I too usually take a medium in most brands.

Cheer turunen.  I think you're right, but we'll see.  I have a 48 on the way just to check it out.  My only concern is the chest, or pit to pit.  48 translates to a Small over here, according to Barney's.  I like thicker sweaters, even in Spring, and so I'll want to test it out with those as well.  Just a matter of time now I think.

I have a size 48 unlined cameraman. I find it slightly on the small side and too tight with a sweater underneath. The overall length and arm length is spot on, however, I wish the chest was a bit larger.

See, this is what I'm talking about!  :)  Hopefully Barney's get's it out tomorrow and I have it by the end of the week.

 

I'm a 42 in a blazer, 33 waist.

Please let us know how it fits once it arrives. I haven't had very good luck with determining my size in several Cabourn pieces.

Eesh, you're typically a 42 and you ordered a 48(38)? I'm typically a 38/39 in blazers and a 48 fits me well.

I've done my homework, but it's still not 100% until you try it on.  48 is considered a Small.  I'm usually a Medium, which is a 50, but the place I got it from doesn't have a 50.  I might just order their 52 as well and see if I'm inbetween.  Anyway, I went by End Clothing's measurements which are 21" pit to pit for the 48.  I can't have it too tight obviously, but I want it fitted enough too.  I know it's a parka but I would hate for it to be too big.

Will do.  Got it with free shipping and returning it will be easy.  Shipped today so I should have it by Friday.
