Yeah mate, managed to get in towards the end of last week. Had a good chat with Ian and tried on a few of the pieces, really like a lot of the collection. It's good to see that I want to buy quite a few of the items unlike last season.
Tried on the taped aircraft jacket with the detachable vest and it's really nice. You'd want to wear a flannel or a big jumper like Drew in the lookbook picture though as it wouldn't keep the arms particularly warm when it gets to winter. The duffle jackets are absolutely stunning, as you'd expect for that price. Fabric is amazing.
A hidden gem of the collection might be the business jacket (and matching trousers and waistcoats). I hadn't noticed it in the pictures but up close the fabric is really nice with lots of little speckles and slight variations in colour. Well worth a second look if anyone is after a smarter jacket.
But too be honest, I was blown away by the Indigo Mallory. I remember when the season started getting released that that was the piece I really liked the most but it's just stunning to me. All the new Mallory's are really nice, the colour just seems to pop in all of them but it's the Indigo one that really gets me excited. Didn't buy it just now as I've just bought an EG suit from the bureau and I was hoping to sell the navy one I bought last year first but think I might since my contract just got extended well into next year and I don't want to miss out. I've listed my navy one on ebay at quite a high price just to see if there is any nibbles but if anyone here is interested then let me know as I'll knock the price down a wee bit.
Ended up buying these from last winter. I forget the name of them and though they might be too big and baggy but when I put my boots on I just loved them. They aren't lined but they are really soft and not itchy at all which I thought was a little surprising. The added volume of these trousers did look great with the aircraft jacket, which has seriously got me considering that piece too. They had them in a smaller size in the windowpane fabric too. It might be worth pointing out that Corniche seem to have quite a few pieces that are from past season that aren't on the website.
