Nigel Cabourn - Page 181

post #2701 of 4495
Hi - does anyone have any ideas about the sizing on the NC suspender jeans at Barneys? Is the waist TTS? Thanks for any help.

Yeah. I couldn't believe my eyes. Had been there yesterday and didn't see it, although I was looking in the same section. Really lucked out. I like everything about it. Well actually except the extended collar but that easily folds away and is there when you need it.

Oh and I think 1200 sounds right. Except at Barney's it was probably 1700. They mark everything up.

Love the photo - the brick backdrop is just fantastic. I think it's fit for a full Cabourn photoshoot!

I was a bit nervous to do it because I haven't found any one else that's done it.
Very happy with the result.

My 48 fits perfectly so I'm reluctant to soak it in case it doesn't fit any more.. But I'm trying to break the tweed in a bit to get that softness, so far without success.. Any tips?

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. 

 

 

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's beautifully made, I just couldn't walk around Tesco's in it.

 

Agreed that the Debenham is one of the nicer ones. I liked the surgeon jacket too.

All I know is that I rang Superdenim Friday to ask about the waist sizes on both the 28 and 30 inch waist jeans

28 was coming out at 32 inches
30 was coming out at 33.5 inches
Didn't ask about the length
Superdenim might post exact sizes on their website soon - they usually do a little time after they go live

My guess is if you are going to wash them - and or wear them with the suspenders all the time -go for your normal size.

If you are going to wear them 'dry' , not wash them and sometimes wear them without suspenders - maybe wear a size down. But it's only a guess based on my call to Superdenim

Soak it in cold water? It wouldn't shrink I guess. But don't hold that to me. I'd gate for you to shrink and unable to wear it

From what I've read I definitely wouldn't soak it if it fits well

My only advice is to wear it. Tweed, unless it is specifically woven to be soft or light weight, is designed to be hardy, traditionally woven for outdoor pursuits in the rugged Scottish Highlands and Islands and wearing on country estates.

Wear will soften it a bit. Wearing it in the rain and keeping it on as it drys will help - you'll smell a bit though smile.gif

Thanks guys. Yes I guess I'll just have to be patient.

And here is said Mallory sported with green fairisle:

 

 You can see that the wool is still quite stiff..

Nice fair isle. You definitely don't want to risk shrinking that.

Mallory looks great - looks a great fit. I wouldn't worry about the firm handle of the tweed. Just wear it lots
post #2714 of 4495

not sure if this was posted, but context has some crazy deals on cabourn...if you can find your size.

post #2715 of 4495
Some great pics over the last few pages, it's making me regret not picking up a Mallory this year. I really liked the Dark Navy version but ended up grabbing the WW1 Great Coat instead. Apparently there will be an indigo version next year so I'll maybe grab one then.

On another note, and I see this was asked a page or two back as well, how do the 4 way roll necks fit? I'm generally a 52 in Cabourn due to my current tubbiness but I can't seem to find any available in that size, only 50's. Are they by any chance a little oversized and given that wool stretches, is there any chance I may be able to size down or am I clutching at straws?
