Yes that was one of the websites i looked at

 

The garment clips are small at 10mm and 15mm.

 

Interestingly the Trigger Locks on this site are the ones Penfield use on their Cameraman type copy garments.

First time I've seen a Marrkt sale with quite a lot of stuff in my size. Tempted by a skyliner or one of the vests but just going to leave it just now. Backpack looks nice too.

Did someone say previously that you need to size down one in some of the Eddie Bauer stuff?

Yes, those are traditionally used for firefighter coats, like the vintage one below (allegedly from the ´40s), but also on more recent examples. They serve the same function as the naval clips and wooden toggles, being easier to operate with gloved or very cold hands.

If you're buying something off Marrkt, the Highland cable gloves are looking tempting at only five quid. If you're special like I am (an American), they're only about $8 after VAT. Orginally about $48. Not bad for british wool and leather/suede.

That's the consensus, but in my experience I'd say TTS.  Pit to pit is from the outside of the garment and so you're not factoring in the inch or so, and yes it is an inch, thickness of the down.  I've only tried the K2 and quilted jacket (quilted field/Mallory, which it should be noted is a bit snug in the arm depending on your build) though and they are both AW12 while the Skyliner is AW11.  Of course they look pretty big with the thickness of the down, but to be expected in this sort of coat.  If you're looking at a skyliner I'd move soon as I think inventory is limited.  Had the navy in a 52 in my cart and it was gone by the time I was ready to check out.  I can definitely live without it.  Now whoever grabbed the grey fairisle Highland cable gloves though...

Thanks. If this sale had been 6 months from now, I would be all over a Skyliner as I don't have anything like that but I'm in the process of working out what I'm going to spend on S/S clothing so don't really want to spend money on A/W clothing even though it's still really cold at the minute. Unless, of course, a Mallory pops up some time soon or there is still some nice stuff left around the next round of drops.

It's not an exclusive.  Nice piece though even though it's more "basic" than the version with the seam detail.  Much cheaper too.

This is really cool because I have a clip jacket with a bad clip (doesn't close as tight as it should) and I really want to get it fixed up but it seems like getting the clips on/off the jacket itself is tricky. Anybody have any ideas on how to actually replace one of these clips? I

Speaking of clip jackets, where are they this season? I thought they were a spring/summer staple. And how come only Japan has the hoodies? Are certain pieces just not out yet?

It's probably cheaper because that one isn't made of Ventile. The non-Ventile ones are about the same price they've been for the last few years.

No you are right - spotted it somewhere else as well - I think it was Kafka. NC did a Surface jacket in this material a couple of seasons ago.

So it says at cabourn.com

I suppose it did look a bit silly saying e commerce site coming Feb 2013 when we are in the middle of March.

 

It's a development and the anticipation is building - it surely should imminent otherwise the SS13 selling season will be over !! 

 

My guess is that it will go live next week as Nigel's right hand man is at Cheltenham this week.

post #2893 of 4494

Well well well!

 

cabourn.com is up and running!

 

There's a few unique-to-the-website items such as this:

 

 

Very exciting stuff
