Quite a funky little site - impressed with the look and feel of the site
Disappointed that they don't have 44's and 46's but hey well it's a start
I agree with you these troos are the stars so far
Not a bad looking Cameraman. I definitely think the ones with more contrast work best. My navy/navy is very stealthy and I've often regretted not getting one with a more pronounced tweed.
For the record, I was a very good boy and only peeked briefly at the latest Marrkt, and that only long after all the good stuff had been ripped from the racks. On the same note, I've added more stuff to my for-sale ads, including 2 pairs of brand new selvedge work jeans in a decent size 34. Just saying. Times are hard.
It's all gone very quiet on the forum
Hope there haven't been any nasty accidents with experiments on retying the hangman's knots !!
Anybody acquired any new NC's pieces which they can share - anybody invested in anything on the new Cabourn site or taken advantage on End Clothing's free worldwide shipping offer?
Interesting reading some of the descriptions and history of the garments on the new Cabourn site. Looks like Nigel has found the original source of the camo print to a 1940's SAS pattern.
Although, having done a quick bit of research, I think it more likely that it was used predominantly in the early 1950's with SAS operations in Malaya. The same camo pattern was used by Canadian troops as well in Malaya and Rhodesia in the early 50's.
I remember reading an interview with Nigel where he told the story of when he was in Japan a few years ago and a chap walked in wearing some vintage camo trousers which although he suspected them to be British in origin, he didn't recognise the pattern. He bought the trousers off the chap and It's this pattern he has had exclusively printed and first appeared last year.
