I got the 50 in both and fit is perfect in my opinion. I'll post some pics in the next day or two if that's cool.

As you noted, the one that you have is a completely different jacket. It's defnitely not as tailored as the jacket that Nixda has. In fact you could go up a size in Nixda's jacket and stil be an inch more tailored in the chest than the one you have.
I actually like the jacket you have. I like them both and prefer Nixda's, but I still like the one you have. I'm tempted to get one myself, but I've bought enough Cabourn, again, this Summer.post #3338 of 62028/9/13 at 6:22pmpost #3339 of 62028/10/13 at 6:57pmpost #3340 of 62028/10/13 at 11:07pm
The tweed Mallory is made by a company called Panache in London, as far as I know. The Cameraman has been made by Mackintosh in Scotland, at least as long as they were made using Mackintosh fabric. Not sure if the change to Ventile has changed anything.
Mos of the Cabourn stuff is produced in a single factory in the Midlands, staffed by young Eastern European workers.
post #3341 of 62028/11/13 at 12:45ampost #3342 of 62028/14/13 at 3:47pmHas anyone found that the sizing of Cabourn henleys (produced in collaboration with the excellent Merz B Schwanen) is, for lack of a better term, fucking mental?!
I own a few, the rugby shirt in a size 52 which is tight, and two henleys in 50 which are loose. How the hell are the 50s bigger than the 52s from the same factory?!post #3343 of 62028/14/13 at 3:52pmpost #3344 of 62028/14/13 at 3:54pmpost #3345 of 62028/14/13 at 3:58pmMaybe they're constructed with reference to garments from different periods? So sizing would be accurate in relation to the original, but not consistent across styles?
I'm pretty new to Cabourn stuff, but it doesn't seem like sizing inconsistencies are out of the ordinary... Frustrating for the customer though!
