Nigel Cabourn - Page 171
Styleforum Top Picks
I was on before it was posted on Styleforum and before the email went out (simply by chance) and they only had the 52 left. Also, it said "made in Japan", so might be more fitted than usual if that's any sort of consolation.
My Common People buy arrived today - two chambrays and a mechanic sweater. I definitely made the right decision on the fits - I'm a 48 in the Cabourn jackets and knits I own, and the Medium shirts and Small sweater fit perfectly. I'm particularly impressed with the shirts - they're well cut, well made, and very good lookin'. The mechanic sweat is also really good, and heavy, but it's clear the hardware on the collar isn't a patch on Cabourn quality. All in all though, for the price, I'm really delighted. I think they still have some pieces left at heavy markdown in the sale if you're quick!
Good to hear. Yes it's not Cabourn quality, but it's very good for the price (particularly at the heavy markdowns. My field pants arrived - fairly slim cut with nice taper and very solid construction. I had to return the shirt - just big enough in the chest but way too short in the sleeves - hopefully XL might work. Just ordered one of the mustard blazers and a green waistcoat, hopefully they'll be decent.
Okay - I had Cultizm as a source. The state it's Ventile: http://www.cultizm.com/product_info.php?info=p2599_Nigel-Cabourn-Short-Puffa-Jacket-Khaki.html
However, they seem to be the only one who claim it...
So I am with you - that's not Ventile
