Not the vest, did the jacket. They are made out of the same material, you will get more shrinking in the length

Could you measure the pit to pit and underarm measurements, along with the marked size of the jacket and season (if known) and PM me?

 

The reason for asking is a discussion I'm having with ^^ (Mr B) about sizing and Cabourns apparently random approach to it. We've measured 5 of our own Mallorys so far and the results are these:

 

Navy            52 AW10 57/44 (22.5, 17.3)

Army stripes 50 AW10 57/44 (22.5, 17.3)

Crazy           52 AW12 58.5/45.5 (23, 18)

Brown          52 AW12 57 (22.5)

Green          52 AW12. 57 (22.5)

 

Sizing is pit to pit and underarm length, in centimetres (and inches)

 

Would like to get some more data on this, and also for the Cameraman. From the above it looks like two of the five jackets have the wrong size marked! Getting proper measurements documented would be a good help in identifying sizing (given that so far marked sizing has a 40% chance of being wrong...)

 

Come one, guys, don't be shy... Zero response so far. Help build up a knowledgebase of Cabourn sizing today!

Quite the replica, though what you actually get for 50 pounds is unknown... 100% cotton, the added benefit of a zip.

I realise I am very late with a response but can cabourn really complain about people "ripping off" his designs? I recently purchased the vintage showroom book on sale and tere is a vintage military parka in there that is obviously the "inspiration" however to my eyes it looks like a direct copy. If this is indeed the case can Nigel really complain about others doing it as well?

To be fair Nigel isn't complaining. Only a couple of fans on this thread are pointing it out. That being said companies like H&M or Penfield don't care a bit about heritage or authenticity they're just copying the popular designs of the day.

I disagree to a certain extent and my first post is perhaps poorly worded in what I was trying to convey. Maybe Nigel himself is not complaining about it but one of his employees has tweeted a picture of the H&M copy of his copy which to me does seem to indicate at least an annoyance of this practice with regards to this.

 

Where I do not disagree is that companies like H&M do not care for the heritage of the garments but that is not what these companies are for. They make fast fashion that will last one or two years at most and that is their target market not for people on style forum. As an owner of a cameraman I wish that this was not the case as I do not want my coat being mistaken for a cheap piece of rubbish from H&M but I do realise this is the nature of the beast.

For all Nigel Cabourn lovers, this is a must read magazine.

It's in German, but the style is magnificant. 

 

Classic, traditional and the highest quality available!

But be aware, it's shockingly inspiring, it might change your whole wardrobe!

 

It made me run to my cellar and dig up real old stuff and started to wear all over again!

Hi all i am a newbie of NC. I got a AW12 Crazy Mallory jacket in 48, anyone here have the same Mallory in 46 and want to size up? (I know the chance is very slim).

As a short Chinese guy(5"7), my 
Mallory is a little bit big for me. However the jacket is soooooo beautiful, the colour and texture of tweed are so rich that i don't want to let it go.

To me it's a piece of craft.

I have it in navy. If you need some more information send me a PM

Was back home in Edinburgh this weekend and picked up a white oxford from Corniche. I have to say that this is definitely the best oxford I have ever owned. The fabric is ridiculous, so awesome, and I love the collar too. Can't recommend it enough at sale prices. Might try and grab another colour.

Almost bought a crazy Mallory too but managed to restrain myself.

Also, if the guy in NYC who just bought the Thomas Crean Sleeping Bag jacket from Corniche is a member of the forum, it would be amazing to see some pics of it in the wild when you get it.

How's the fit on those oxfords? I've been eying them after getting my Mallory, but I've never handled one in person.

Fit is good. A wee bit slimmer than stuff like Gitman Vintage but not excessively so. Go true to size. I got a 52 which I think is equivalent to a L and is the same size all my other Cabourn stuff is in.

It's definitely the fabric that makes these oxfords. It's really thick and feels amazing.

Damn. I thought I was over the NC lust for a while, but now I desire an Oxford shirt. Thanks a lot, Jagger_On.

 

Looks like Corniche is pretty pricey on them though. 224 pounds? Flannels is 160. Anyone know of better prices?
