Finding a 56 will be difficult, but I think a 44" is going to be too restrictive.
post #2327 of 4474

I would think a 54 would be fine.  Pit to pit according to end is 24 inches making for a 48 inch chest.  On top of that, the clasps at the chest area if closed at the opening the closest in gives you at least half an inch to the chest, more like an inche though.  Conversely you could do a 56 and put the clasp through the furthest out opening.  Either way though I think both would be long in the sleeve if you're 5'9".

I took a punt on a Crazy Mallory in 'XL', whether it's a 52 or 54 and whether I need a 52 or 54 will be discovered when it turns up...

I ordered the Small, hoping it's a 48. If you look at their size chart the XL = European 54 so it should be ok.

Finger's crossed!

Prices look the same to me as they have been for a while now. They wrote on their FB page 30 minutes ago:

Could someone help me with a really stupid question about Cabourn sizing? I am after a lined Surface jacket and am usually a 54 which is a XL right? There was one in an XXL so would that be a 56? I am a bit confused as I have never seen a XXL before.

Cheers

All the jackets are marked with the size in numbers. I'd go with that rather than trying to follow some semi-random conversion a seller has made to sizes. Ask them for the pit to pit measurement and compare that to you chest size. Given how utterly random Cabourn sizing appears to be, it pays to play it safe.

The Surface jacket is on the Triads website, I have tried emailing them and no response and cant phone as I am in Oz at the moment. I think the XXL would be a 56.

Ta for the help.

Cheers

Are the Nigel Cabourn Cameraman arms roomy? The 54 may fit a 46 inch chest, but I am concerned about the arms. I have a Frank Leder Hooded coat that has 24inch pit2pit measurement, but it's still restrictive, mainly because of a combination of the my arms being big and the coat arms being very fitted and so I don't have as much freedom of movement in that coat. But the Nigel Cabourn Cameraman has raglan sleeves and if the arms are roomy, I should be set. I don't plan on wearing a massive coat underneath, perhaps a sweater, but nothing more.

Ya that company is a funny one. Not sure why they held onto their old stock for SOOOO Long before putting them on Sale. I guess that's just how they work they rather hold on than to put it out there.

Introducing Women's for AW13

Nigel Cabourn Womenswear

Stitching a Story

The greatest possessions have a sentiment.
They tell a story.
Whether inspired by history.
Or making a journey.
Or by a man or woman making that journey.
We believe what is important is not the only garment.
But the story the garment tells.
We believe every garment should tell a different story.
And with Cabourn’s heritage in day wear and active wear,
Life tells the greatest story of them all.

Unravel each collection.

I got a message saying the code is either expired or reached it's usage limit.  WTF?  It's been five hours.

 

EDIT:  Looks like it's only on those boots.  Older Cabourn stock went up in price though.  Looks like it's all back to full price.  Not all seasons, but some of the earlier ones.

Very cheap Cabourn at Flannels: http://www.flannelsfashion.com/designers/men/nigel-cabourn/nigel-cabourn-shop-the-collection.aspx

Add up whatever 10% off coupon you can find + 20% VAT refund.

Thou' I'd add that my experience with them is THE WORST. Once sent me the wrong Storm Parka and once refused to ship a Surface jacket unless I paid extra shipping cost (I canceled the order).

With Ushowu I can confirm that many thing went back to RRP - why? ...I don't know

I'm not seeing any outstanding deals.  I've seen those prices already at other shops.  With the extra 10% they're not bad, but no code for that at present from what I can see.  They also charge a ridiculous 35 pounds delivery.  They take VAT off of the delivery charge, but still.
