Still not the sort of thing I'd wear much so probably a good thing.
So can someone tell me where this Kestin Hare is claiming to be the former "Head of Design" for Cabourn? That Arkive link says it, but it's not a quote. In fact the only quote is from the Selectism piece saying he was his "right hand man" on a particular collection.
Common People looks alright. The one parka, with the lighter upper, actually looks great. A couple of other pieces look alright too. Stil, now that I know Cabourn it's tough to walk away. Not a fan of the label or name, though the latter is to a lesser extent and nothing against Pulp. Always wished I'd grabbed that album on vinyl back in the day. Was a cool vinyl set IIRC.
I've thought about how interesting it'd be to work with Cabourn. My experience is largely the retail and management end of things. Would be a great experience though.
Same here. However it's only a small group at this point. IIRC there were a few items from that Pitti video. Hopefully we'll see more shops post some inventory in the next week or so.
Still not a fan of those taped outer seams. Says the Aircraft Jacket is a Presente exclusive in those colorways, but IIRC there were in that Pitti video. Look like Spurs warmup jackets or something. Nothing wrong with Spurs mind you. Now were they Chelsea colors...
Ahh. Then I can see an issue with it, assuming it's not the case. Still as far removed as I am from it all...
Oh yeah, some good deals there from what I can see. A few interesting pieces too. Too committed in other areas of late though.
Definitely should be able to carve out their own niche considering the price of RRL and Junya Watanabe.
Well Barbour is tempting me with it's very own Tokihito Barça warm up. No Qatar Airways to be found either. Fortunately he didn't take notice of this year's away kit.
I like those shirts.. Much more accessible pricing too.. I wonder how the quality of a 160 pound shirt compares to the usual ones of 325+?
Well, my wax surface jacket arrived, and sadly I just don't think it's quite the right fit. A bit gutted if I'm honest, but there's no scope to try on Cabourn first around London it seems so I had to take the plunge.
It rubs quite uncomfortably across the shoulders - I tried it on first with a t-shirt underneath, and the t-shirt arms started riding up within the jacket. Weird, because the arms are definitely long enough to the point of almost being slightly too long, and I can't imagine going up a size would flatter them at all (in fact my arms would probably completely disappear).
I'm 6'1, 32" waist, 12 stone - pretty much standard shape and a perfect fit in CP and most Italian outerwear, but I guess maybe Cabourn (or perhaps just this piece) isn't for me..
I don't think there is as much detail on the shirts either - might not have the buttons under the collar. Plus I might be wrong but weren't the previous plain thick cotton oxford shirts made in Japan or was it just the cloth from Japan?
The Cricket jackets don't have sleeve buttons and are quite minimal so could explain the £250 price tag. The Hospital Jackets and Selvedge pocket jackets last year were £395-£495 retail and the camo jacket was around £600 if I remember rightly.
From some early styling shots I think the Cricket Jackets are meant to be worn tight and have a slim and short fit - I look forward to trying on a 46 to see how they are different from previous Cabourn jackets
