Looks pretty cool. I'd guess the material will loosen up a little with wear as well? Looks a little stiff right now. Will look marvelous once it wears in a bit.

Thought I'd cross post this link in case nobody here is keeping an eye on this thread. A lot more to come later apparently.

Has anyone seen an Arctic Parka in Orange and a size 52 on the net? I keep on missing these sales.

On sale? Or retail? For retail (or for slightly less), it's definitely buyable, easy peasy. But if you are hoping for a huge discount, you can forget about it... I haven't ever seen these jackets for with a significant discount, just some clues that they were for sale (but my guess is that stores had like last one and they wanted to clear the stock).

 

Speaking of Everest Parka- I just received mine. This jacket is simply superb.. I got size 48 which still is very big and fits me nicely, maybe size 50 would be a bit better for that oversized look, but 48 still looks great. There are few things I didn't know about, like that there's an elastic cord you can model in the hood, you can shape the hood as you fancy. The jacket is also very lightweight. One problem is that the hem and cuffs tend to change the colour to the color of the garment they are rubbing against. So the hem on the inner side gets dark if you are wearing the jacket with jeans. Well, no biggie and I hope it's washable.

I will post some fit photos later on. Just a heads up- if someone is thinking about getting one of these jackets, go for it. It's a stunning piece which I hope I'll wear for next 10 years.

By the way, I don't know if you've seen the video of Nigel talking about the Everest Parka- he showcased a new one and a 9 year old one. The 9 year old was sooo beautifully faded.. gave it that extra vintage look. I hope my jacket will fade in the same manner.. damn I can't find the video but it has been posted at youtube.

Actually I'll take that back a bit.  Still a ton for shipping, but that is a good price, after you deduct VAT.  On top of that, Flannels does deduct VAT from the cost of shipping which surprises me.

Shipping charges are insane - that's true.

Well I think I saw the price you posted and thought VAT was factored in.  Now if you factor in something else the shipping is spread out, but I resisted the Debenham in white.  Would probably get dirty really quickly anyway.  Thanks again for posting that.

Looks like there will be a new Crazy Mallory for AW13. Oddly, this one doesn't work for me at all. Whereas the original has a nice organic mix of tweeds, the new one just looks like a lot of scraps being used up. What do you reckon?

Congrats Kojiro, what colour did you go for? Has anyone got the Arctic parka in yellow? I can't find an orange in my size and am thinking about the yellow but am a little nervous about dirt as the orange would hide little stubborn marks quite easily.

The cheapest I saw was an army coloured one at Ushowu which was €1100, but has since gone up in price again.

 

I saw a similar video on You Tube where the guy he's talking to keeps saying that the Parka is so expensive, and in the end Nigel angrily storms off .. But at the end of the video you see it was just a set-up.. Hilarious! Anyway in that video he shows a parka which someone snowboarded in, and it is indeed nicely beaten up..

I was referring to an orange everest parka, which price is pretty firm. Other colour versions hit sales from time to time, but the orange Everest is pretty much a flagship product from NC fashion house. I'd argue it's their most successful / well known one (Everest and Mallory blazers).

As for the video- that's the one! And the 9 year old orange Everest parka shown there aged sooo beautifully.. I wouldn't mind getting a 'distressed' version like that but I guess NC philosophy is that you will wear these garments for several years and that's the only legit way to get the proper distressed look, no shortcuts ;)

 

I tried to find the link to the video at youtube to share it with you guys but I didn't succeed in finding it.

Going back to my Henry Bowers, is it normal for a seam to start under the armpit and finish level with your thumb rather than under the wrist. It's not a problem for me but i've never seen it before.
