Nigel Cabourn - Page 2

post #16 of 4838
I like his approach to fashion, he's definitely a british icon. His attention to detail, way of sourcing the fabrics etc. is very Visvim-like. He's supposed to have a mad archive of vintage, authentic military/workwear pieces that he's been collecting from all over the world for decades.

I understand his brand is growing well in Japan. I had a very hard time locating it in London recently.

Cabourn seems to be on to something. I like the story behind his work. He has also been a long-time collector of vintage clothing especially associated with the military.

You should ditch that Cucinelli part-time playboy bullshit and wear this stuff, it is def age appropriate (i.e. it fits guys 40+ even better).

I really like the Storm Parka:



And I've wanted the clip jacket forever, but other purchases keep on getting in the way. If anyone gets me this in a Eu50, I'll let them post a bunch of special flower threads:

His pieces look like the few Visvim pieces I liked (also British-inspired).

It really depends how you see it, from the point of view of a client buying designer items it is ok pricing. There is no real need for this tech stuff, it's just luxury and styling choices.

LOL @ jet.

I feel like his stuff is priced at the high end for "workwear." For someone who purchases Junya or MMM, then yes--it is priced reasonably. For someone who purchases EG, WWM and similar brands--it is priced pretty high.

His flannels are $400+....although I suppose they are "reversible" so you are getting 2 for the price of 1

SuperDenim.co.uk have major sales on Cabourn stuff... I picked up an AW09 reversible tanker jacket that retailed for £450 for £100, and a pair of the ARN Mercantile pants for £70 recently...

I'm so sick of people calling everything with a heritage bent "workwear". That's just ignorance. Cabourn stuff is militaria and sports gear. This season, whatever was not naval gear (his backbone) was based on early mountaineering clothing.

While I'm at it, Woolrich Woolen Mills /= workwear. It's based on outdoors and hunting clothing. These days, Engineered Garments /= workwear. It's mostly preppy staples with a good deal of functional clothing, but it is not "workwear" per se. And many of those English heritage brands are based on hunting clothing. Definitely not workwear. Post O'Alls is workwear.

No, I agree with you. Which is why I put the "workwear" in quotes. I was using that term very loosely. I suppose what I should have said is that for brands that are often found in the same retail places (EG, WWM, etc.)--Nigel Cabourn's price point is on the high end.

Cabourn is also often sold alongside Belstaff and Barbour Tokito (about the same pricepoints) and CP Company (higher pricepoint). And in some cases, it sits alongside Dries van Noten, Martin Margiela, and Junya Watanabe. The placement within the lineup really depends on the individual stockist.

Nigel Cabourn is, hands down, my favorite designer these days. Official site Japanese site Here are all of the online stocklists that I know of: NA: Opening Ceremony Inventory Blackbird Unionmade Barney's UK: Flannels LN-CC Superdenim (also check their sale section) Coggles Corniche End Eleven Present London Oi Polloi Peggs & Son Bureau Belfast Oki-ni EU: Cultizm Tres Bien Shop Volls Ushowu Nitty Gritty French Trotters JP: ARKnets Bless Kink Nagoya Don't forget Rakuten There are probably a ton of other JP sites selling them, but a lot are blogs, and the exchange rate is terrible, so I haven't been keeping up... As far as pieces I own at the moment, I have a Cameraman (my favorite Cabourn garment ever), a few knits, and the Johns pant. There are a couple Cabourn items I'd love to have... Pea Coat from JP This sweater has always been a holy grail for me Oh, and someday I will have a Mallory jacket. I loved this windowpane version from this year.

The design, materials, and construction are so much better than EG and WWM. The only possible comparison, in my mind, is Mister Freedom. But I think NC even exceeds MFSC. EDIT: and by that, I mean similarly heritage/military-inspired brands. I don't know anything about high fashion.

The focus on technical, but obsolete, garments sorta make it an heritage version of CP company IMHO, while the look is very Junya.

From the few pieces I have handled I would say this is definitely true.

I've decided that I will also accept this:

http://www.flannelsfashion.com/Men/i...am-jacket.aspx

if someone send it to me. Size 50, I think, for that one.
post #30 of 4838
Zissou, what size is your cameraman? Fok, you think you'd be a 50? Not a 48?
