Having the confidence to wear it is another thing too.

Nick, if you get the chance when you're in London you should go to the Vintage Showroom. I got the book for my birthday and it's awesome. Lots of great pieces where you can see where people like Cabourn got there inspiration from. http://www.thevintageshowroom.com/blog/?page_id=5457

Great idea - thanks for posting. Definitely will visit when next in london

I've already got 3 Mallorys, so I think I'm ok for that style, although I might like a Tenzing for summer use.

 

I'm flying to London tomorrow though and will drop by Trunk, and maybe Present, on Friday for a look and feel. I've got a pair of Harris Tweed Bombay pants, an Ink Vest and a (possibly too small) green Fairisle waiting for me to pick up, so there will be some NC haul. Very unlikely I'll buy anything new. I'm visiting SEH Kelly on Saturday, which is a more likely place to spend money at this point.

If you are going to SEH kelly then present is indeed a 2 minute walk from them. Be aware that SEH kelly isn' a storfront but you arrive at a gate and need to buzz to be let in, if memory serves me correctly it is buzzer 1. This had me confused for a good five minutes before I figured it out. From the bottom of the road SEH Kelly is on take a left and then a left again and present is pretty much on the other side of the road. If you ahve time it is worth checking out a few other shops in the area like DS Dundee and Albam, although I have been dissapointed in Abam lately. These can be easily found by just following the road Present is on.

Good info! Many thanks.

Thanks but I've just realised I've photo'd them hanging on plastic yellow dry cleaning hangers  - how embarrassing !

 

Not very NC

 

I hasten to add that not one of my Nigel Cabourn pieces has ever been near or would ever go near a dry cleaners.

Another one of these has come up for sale in a size 46 at Endclothing in their AW12 sale for any similarly slim framed chaps.

 

The Navy Cape Cameraman - its little different from the classic Cameraman and this is definitely the way to wear it.

Just had the call from the fine and beautiful people at End Clothing.

 

SS13 going on the computer now and will be live and on line sometime tomorrow (Friday)

Regarding the Sleeping Bag Coat:

I tried this on at Present (it is described on the site as One Size). I think everyone who goes in the shop tries it on!

I am a Large and I struggled to get into it - it comes up small, especially over the arms.

Reminds me of Captain Caveman.

Lol.. To be honest with the Scott Collection I wondered whether anyone would actually wear some of the stuff.. Surely anyone wearing the Naval Jacket looks like Captain Stubing?

Just looking on the End website, is it me or are the pictures mixed up on the Rangoon Jkt and the Cameraman Jkt?
post #2684 of 4168

I thought for sure End would pick up the Converse. I guess it's not ready to go yet?

Well SS13 is letdown for me.  I'm not complaining since I can focus on other areas, but IMO it's not as good as SS12.  Only big improvement for me is the Aircraft Jacket.

Not necessarily.  It all depends on how you style it.  If you go jeans and the right boots I think it's pretty easy to work.  Of course that depends on your personal style as well.   

 

I liked how Nitty Gritty styled their model with the Debenham:

It's easily one of the best in the collection and very wearable depending on your style.
