Still not the sort of thing I'd wear much so probably a good thing.

Present London have just had their first Nigel Cabourn SS13 items in - prices seem to have come down a bit from previous SS collections. Also Present have some 46's in for the first time

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...

It's on the 'about' page of the Common People site.

I can't see me buying anything from them at full retail, but on clearance it adds a bit of variety to the wardrobe. I'm happy with the Norfolk I picked up (always had a thing for action backs smile.gif It's a young company, and hopefully they'll survive and produce more interesting pieces.

I see what you mean about the warm up jackets smile.gif

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..

Yes the pricing does seem more realistic - when the cost of a bespoke shirt from one of Jermyn Street's most respected shirtmakers is only 2/3rds of the cost of a ready made shirt there's something wrong with the pricing IMO.

Why have they dropped the prices? Normally prices goes up, not down. Strange. But good.
post #2530 of 4838
The fabric doesn't look anywhere near as good as the Oxford or the reversible shirts so I'd say that plays a large part in it.
post #2531 of 4838
I actually quite like the Ventile aircraft jacket on Present. Wouldn't pay full price for it though. If I remember right from the previous videos there is going to be quite a few different colours. Anyone any idea how the fabric will hold up in the summer? Do you think it will be too warm and thus more of a spring coat?
post #2532 of 4838

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

Over10 gives an extra 10% off sale stock at Superdenim. Mainly his knitwear, but then after his outerwear it's what he does best smile.gif

Many of the shirts in previous seasons were made in Japan, which I'm sure added to the cost. The new ones are made in England.
post #2535 of 4838
Just checked my white Oxford shirt bought from LN-CC last year and it is made in Japan with the green Mainline label so yes the reduced price reflects the fact they are made in England
Also welcome the new lower front button position which is higher on the new shirts - the previous button position makes it awkward to wear the shirt tucked in
