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.

Newly acquired NC x Brady handy fishing bag from Rakuten.

The condition of the bag is too good to be true for that price

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.

Hi guys,


Does anybody know who makes the Mallory jacket for Nigel Cabourn. I believe there was a company in scotland that was mentioned. I can't seem to remember the name.

Thanks,
Jay

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.

^Ah ok. I think I meant to say Atkinson surgeon jacket, but looks like that is made by Panache as well. Can't find much info on Panache.

Has 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?!

I've nothing useful to offer, but the goldeny-yellow colour collab Henley was fantastic.
post #3344 of 4638
Don't get me wrong, they're fantastic in terms of construction and fabric, which is why I own so many. But it's just bizarre how a bigger size can fit smaller, and the smaller size can fit bigger!
post #3345 of 4638
Maybe 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!
