Nigel Cabourn - Page 114

post #1696 of 5271
Does anyone know how lightweight the raw yellow cameraman is? I don't really need any more outerwear but I don't really have any lightweight pieces that would be good for summer that you can throw on when its raining. There still seems to be lots of items available in my size at very good prices and I'm a wee bit torn between getting that as I don't own a cameraman or an aircraft jacket.

The only thing thats putting me off the aircraft jacket is that I think its made of the same material as the red surface jacket that I bought last year or is it a really lightweight version of the same oilcloth material? Likewise, I can't help think that this cameraman is more of a spring/autumn jacket or winter layering jacket like the surface jacket.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If anyone else is interested in the raw yellow cameraman, there is one on ebay at the moment in a size 46. Looks like it could go quite cheap. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nigel-Cabourn-Cameraman-Jacket-raw-yellow-Size-46-small-veilance-nanamica-/150890850150?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item2321cba766

Hi,

 

This season's cameraman has the Mackintosh upper, with a lined linen body. The lining is fairly substantial. The clips and drawstring are a very dark army green. Since it is linen, how long into autumn you can wear it would depend on where you live and your feelings on seasons & fabric types. It would be rather heavy for a typical sunny summer day (75+ F), most useful on rainy/overcast days and in the evening. Mackintosh is not the world's most breathable fabric.  Unfortunately, the weather this summer in the NYC metro area has been rather warm and I didn't get to wear it that often. The winter Cameraman is very versatile on the other hand. The Aircraft Jackets that I own are the beeswax cotton. The AJ could be worn on warmer days in the sun and folds compactly for storage in bag/backpack. 

 

 

On another subject, Barneys removed the pre-orders from the website and has one new item up, an OCBD. Hopefully the rest will be online soon.

I have only seen the 'crazy' multimaterial one for this season, looking like no-one has seen any other C/w's guess im just gonna have to be patient...

Finally pulled the trigger on that burgundy Surface Jacket that was sitting at 50% off at Flannels for over a year. They had an extra 10% off + VAT refund. Now I just have to cross my fingers they send me the right jacket since when I ordered the storm parka from them they sent me the wrong color combination.

This is a new Cameraman for fw12.

Those taped seams frown.gif Mac/linen seems like an odd combination for FW. This one looks nice, but I would figure it to be a SS piece.


FW12 seems to be dropping everywhere. The Scott's pieces look fantastic, but all out of my current budget.

Cheers for that. I live just outside Edinburgh, it's dreary and overcast 90% of the time. I do prefer this summers cameraman but the thought of being able to roll the aircraft jacket up and put it in a bag is pretty much what I want. Ah, decisions.

Speaking of being in Edinburgh, I went in to town this afternoon and visited Corniche. It's all pretty much on their website but it was good to see the new collection in person. I'm really impressed by so much of this winters collection. They had the sleeping bag jacket on display in the window, the thing is just the nuts. I think my favourite piece of the Scott expedition pieces is the double breasted naval jacket followed by the surgeon jacket.

Of the Authentic and Mainline stuff they have, the WW1 Great Coat was my favourite by far. Unfortunately they only have 46's and 48's left in each colourway and I wasn't able to try it on but it's a truly impressive piece. If anyone knows anywhere that has it in stock in a 52, please let me know. Also tried on the Navy Mallory and I never realised how nice the Mallory was until now. If I don't end up getting the WW1 Great Coat, I'll definitely pick this up.

You sure? I think I saw that in some pics of the SS13.

Agreed on the taped seams. 

 

You're right.  The jacket you have there is SS12.  They did three SS12 cameramen.  I actually have that jacket as well.

Was going to mention, I have yet to see an AW12 Cameraman.

Anyone have the "SHORT PARKA WET WEATHER VENTILE TYPE" ? Looks like a great (but expensive) jacket.

As regular customer at Tres Bien Shop, I was abit surprised to see that they had not recieved the AW collection as of yet. After checking the brands they are carrying, I further noticed that they had removed Nigel Cabourn. I emailed them and asked them to confirm that they would no longer be stocking Cabourn. Hannes at TBS confirmed that they will no longer be carrying NC. The main reason, he stated, is that TBS believe that the price of the products no longer match the quality. Futhermore, they see a limited future for the brand marketing wise.

 

I was somewhat surprised to hear this eventhough I agree on the fact the prices are spiraling out of control.

 

Nitty Gritty have also removed NC from their list of brands as well as LNCC.

They also can't be that happy about the superdenim / marrkt connection and regular "sample sales" there.

But yeah NC's full retail prices are idiotic
post #1708 of 5271
I will agree on the prices getting out of reach. It will be interesting to see how this AW sells, to be honest. I wound up paying near retail for a linen Mallory, only to be surprised to see it 60-70% off later in the season. Some shops, such as End, seem to have made huge buys this AW, so it will be interesting to watch what makes it to sales.

I like the Bowers deck jacket or the Debenham Seaman coat, but $1500 for something that isn't even lined seems a bit crazy.

Nice to see retailers putting their foot down and I fully agree with them, it seems like a tale of the snake bitting it's own tail.


While I have been follow NC the price of the Everest parka has increased1k$ in price and the cameraman is almost the same, which is ridiculous.
post #1710 of 5271
TBS is where I grabbed my camerman from at like 450ish, a STEAL. My only NC piece shog[1].gif

But yes retails prices are high and hopefully when sale time comes around I can still snag a Mallory.

Ushowu has their FW stuff up. Wonder if they will have a 50 percent off sale this year on their older 2011 FW stock.
