Nigel Cabourn - Page 225

post #3361 of 5226

Is anyone looking for an olive surface jacket in size 50? Willing to consider trades for any Nigel Cabourn in size 48

Such a nice jacket

Edit - selling or just trading?

Initially selling but for some reason, I'm finding it really hard to move, hence willing to consider trades now. Maybe I'm pricing it wrong? What do you guys think? 

 

Here's my listing for anyone curious: http://www.styleforum.net/t/359028/nigel-cabourn-surface-jacket-size-50

I'm in UK, but even factoring in shipping and tax I don't think price is way off - these went in sale at End for £449 (now sold out), so yours would work out about the same I think.

 

Never tried one of these on though, p2p of 23" sounds big and shoulders 18.5" a little narrow? Hard to know without trying on of course. Still a lovely jacket though.

End has some of the AW13 collection up.

Those new Mallory's are gorgeous. The Indigo one is especially drool.gif worthy but the Army and brown ones are also really nice. Hope there is a crazy one this year too. Quite like the Army and Stone cameraman as well. Can't wait to see more of the collection.

Taped seam navy/blue cameraman looks ace, and so do the wool hats.

Always love the fairisle knits, but more than I can justify for that sort of thing.

What are your opinions guys on camo Everest? And vs the orange one? My take is that it looks nice but the camo with that cut give it somewhat a 'hunting' style.. I'm not sure if I dig it. Still prefer orange one (although I'd like to own both haha)

 

On the sidenote- indigo Mallory is exceptional.

Just picked up a very nice Cabourn olmotex brown bomber jacket with velvet collar from the Rugged Museum in Tokyo. Second-hand but basically 'as new', and $250 as opposed to the original retail of over $750. Quite a bit of Cabourn in at the moment, but that was the only thing in my size...

I agree the indigo Mallory looks stunning

If I didn't have the orange parka I don't think I would go for the camo as the camo pattern is a bit too fashionable at the moment and the parka is a lifetime investment. My favourite parka colourway was the survival yellow oche one from last year - still available from Flannels in their sale
I just think the ventile yellow oche just looks rich and will fade beutifully and makes the buttons stand out giving the parka a classy look.

The orange being the original being the same colour as Sir Hilary's Antartic parka is the classic though and will still see a lot of wear again from me (and my wife) this Winter

Any chance of a photo?

Well I'm definitely not overly excited about AW13.  Of course there is still more to see, but with End you usually get most of it. 

 

Mallorys are nice, but not much variation in terms of color here.  They're different to a degree in terms of shade, but generally you get your blue/navy, army and brown.  If you've got those bases covered as I now do the urge to get a new one isn't as great.  Of course I have bought the same item in different colors before so who knows.  Vests are nice, but I don't think I can pull them off.

 

Camermen aren't blowing me over either, but at least they're different.  I don't dislike them and I'm still taking them in.  Not a fan of the stitching on the seam-sealed version though. On the flip side I love the vest that comes with it.  Love the Indigo and Navy version as well.  Picked up the SS13 Rangoon a month or so back and love the color combination.

 

I don't own an Everest Parka, but I would go with a solid color were I to invent in one.  I might move for one this season assuming I can secure the deal I think I'll get, but we'll see.  I like just about every solid color I've ever seen, but the orange and yellow are the ones I prefer.  As for the Camo, I like it.  It's pretty much the same pattern he's been using since SS12 if you compare it to the Tenzings and another piece or two.  Color shading is the major difference and I like this shade.

 

I think one of the interesting pieces so far is the Aircraft Jacket.  Different fabric for the piece in that type of cotton construction.  Jacket looks a totally different piece (not surprising considering one of the themes of this collection) and the colors are a change.  Hardware looks really good with the color choices as well. 

 

Plenty more to come in the next week or so I'm sure.

Corniche has a few additional pieces.  Mallorys look a bit different due to the lighting of the shot.  They have the cashmere duffle up as well.

Can anyone comment on the sizing for the cameraman? I'm getting confused because some sources say that the 48 is a small whereas others say it's a medium. I'm a solid medium in most of my other clothes, so if anyone could give any comments or their experiences, I'd appreciate it.
