Has anyone seen this version of the cricket jacket in the flesh, any thoughts? I'm really liking the look of the texture in these pictures. Should be able to see it better in the second picture.

Yes, I tried it on briefly at Trunk a few weeks ago.

It's very fitted, which I liked. The material has a lot of surface interest but doesn't stand out too much from a short distance away, much like in the photo I guess. It feels a bit "stretchy" while you put it on but doesn't look odd once you're wearing it. As a very open weave I would guess it must be quite cool to wear.

From the name I assume it was intended to evoke the look of 1920s/1930s sportswear, fitted but free to move, and I think it does that pretty well.





I ended up buying a taped aircraft jacket and a mallory instead as I felt the cricket jacket wasn't that different from jackets I already had. Given the budget I may well have picked it up anyway, it is a really nice piece.

Thanks for that. I'll try and pop in to Trunk this weekend and have a look.

That picture is brilliant. You can see where he took some inspiration from this season. I was just on the Corniche website and they even have caps in both the cricket colourways. Not entirely sure who is going to buy them or wear them but they're brilliant.

Can't say I have been very impressed with customer service from Le Rayon Frais. My order was placed on May 30, and I received notice that the items are just being shipped today. So, practically 2 weeks between order and shipping.

Same here. Heard yesterday that it has just been shipped. They contacted me about 5 days after my order to say that the 52 I had ordered was actually unavailable (which I'm unsurprised about given what a mess their website was while I was ordering). I went for a 50 instead and will hope it's not too slim.
I'll be happy as long as it arrives in good condition but will think twice about ordering from them again in the future.

Thanks, I'd not seen those caps before .. I agree they are veering a bit too close to costume but they are fantastic in themselves.

I think a few sizes have sold out but have a look at the jersey Mallory as well if you can. They were bagged somewhere up thread and I was prepared to not like them, but I have been wearing mine pretty much non-stop since I got it.

Wow... Singular caps in one size only, at only 256 pounds a piece. Yep, that's Cabourn! :-)

Yeah, I tried it on a few months back. It's a nice jacket but whenever I think of the Mallory I imagine owing one in a thick tweed as I still don't have one yet.

Speaking of which, is there any decent pictures or lookbooks available of AW13 yet?

Ouch! You can have a custom made cap from a specialist cap maker for half that...

I agree with the Cricket Stripe Cap comments - they are a bit of an expensive oddity that I suppose were in keeping with the Dennis Compton theme - I am guessing that only a couple were made for the shows and Corniche have put them for sale on the website as a bit of an exclusive as they are the only shop that has embraced the whole range of the Cricket stripe

Despite often wearing unusual garb that quickens the heartrate at times I can't even see me ever wearing one of these caps unless at a recreation of a 1940's cricket match.

I am surprised that there hasn't been a Cricket stripe tie anywhere - I fancy one to wear with my maroon stripe jacket.

Today's estoteric photo of my ensemble

NC SS12 Camo Tenzing jacket, NC SS12 linen Mallory waistcoat, NC Japan white Oxford Shirt, Lee Originals 101Z jeans, NC -Converse NATO green shoes.

Actually this great photo posted above probably shows the reason why there isn't a matching Cricket Stripe Tie

Ah ha !

 

Just spotted a Compton Stripe tie hanging up on on a rail in this video 1.04 in.

Looks like there was at least one made
