post #2927 of 4734
I did not discover cabourn till ss10 as well but bought this off ebay the summer of that year. Seller made the mistake of selling a winter coat in the middle of the summer. He was asking 500 but got no takers and took 400 for it in the end. He was a nice guy and was selling a lot cabourn at the time. not sure but I think he had direct access to cabourn stock.

I assumed from this that the fabric was made in Portugal but the garment was made in England.

What does it say in your shirt Daisawaguy?

Legally the black Authentic label can just read 'England' even if made elsewhere but it would have to say where it was made elsewhere on another tag
 
 
My shirt does not say Made in England, and there seems to be a tag with EU on it...ah, Portugal...?

Guys, is it at all possible to tailor (take in the sides and maybe chest) of a Cameraman? Perhaps instead of selling mine, I can get it tailored a bit?

why would you want to that? It is an outerwear meant to be worn as outer layer for wearing outdoors. If you try to tailor it as you described, all you can wear underneath is a tank top

I have plenty of room to layer. I'd like to take about 2" off the coat - would still leave plenty of room for layering.
post #2934 of 4734
Is it 2" on each side or 2" total? If it is 2" total, just keep it the way it is. It will save you $ and the chance of ruining the fabric when opening up the seams

Those plain cricket jackets selling for 250 quid also have a slightly unclear provenance (fabric made in Portugal, etc..) I hope they're not a similar let-down.

 

I've got nothing against Portugal obviously, but it's the principle right?

A 2012 take on the Cabourn rope belted Duffel coat design (there was a black one in 2010 I believe). What's interesting is that it is apparently made in Belgium using Belgian fabric. Since the classic Duffel coat takes it name from woolen cloth made in the Flemish town of Duffel this makes a typical Cabourn kind of sense.

 

Yeah Bellerose is a chain over here. Bizarrely, in most towns they just sell stuff like Docker's and Lee, but in their Brussels stores they (used to) sell Cabourn and other high end things. They haven't had any Cabourn stuff for about 2 years now... :-(

They had a few Cabourn pieces when I went there a couple of weeks ago

Really? In which store? (they've got several in Brussels right?)

 

Anything interesting?

Rue des Chartreux. Popped there just now on my lunch break and no more Cabourn sadly.

 

Think they had an orange everest jacket before, and something in tweed that I forget.

Nothing against Portugal but one of the reasons I have invested ( I have no pretentions of getting any money back, I use the word invested because of the considerable cost ) in Nigel Cabourn is because of the British manufacture and mainly British heritage fabrics.

I still like the design and it won't put me off buying these shirts because as a brand it still supports Brirish and small scale manufacturing with other garments but my main fear is that this could be the start of a trend where NC starts manufacturing some of the high end pieces outside of the UK to reduce the cost, sell more at better margins.
If this happens I will become vehemently opposed and will cease being a loyal customer
