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.

Fantastic - thanks posting

The trousers look great

Those look to me like the Bombay pants, in Harris Tweed. Really quite insanely silly trousers, but at the same time too cool... I have them in navy blue. Hard to know when to wear them though!

Yes, I remember talking to you about them now. For some reason I thought they were called the Highland pant or something but knew it wasn't quite right. Think I might unleash mine sometime this week.

Bombay does seem a silly name, at least for the wool version. Guess it's the same inspiration for the style as the Bombay Bloomer shorts.

The first testing of the Cameraman this season...

Were you wrassling an ice floe? I thought the fabric was some kind of insane camo tweed for a moment.

Fantastic photo - took me a few moments to work it out

My son took this photo this aft of me at the Discovery exhibition in Dundee which is the home to Captain Scott's first Antarctic ship

Wearing NC Everest sweater (not inside out for once)
NC 2009 Tenzing before it was renamed The Mallory

Eric,

Welcome to my home town of Dundee. We could have met up and compared some Cabourn, even though you don't know me and I'm a complete stranger.

The Discovery is fantastic I would encourage anyone to visit, especially as Scotland is the third best place to visit in the world, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-24712473
How anybody could have lived in those condition and stayed in the Antarctic for years trapped in the ice is amazing.

Looking sharp, Eric!

I got hit by a blinding wet snowstorm while walking across campus to my office. I love the Cameraman for those exact conditions.

You are right the Discovery museum is fantastic - one of the best museums I've been to for a long time and second only to the Royal Armouries in Leeds on my list of personal favourites

Full of great photos, exhibits and images that have lots of Cabourn references from last years Limited Edition collection

But the boat is the star - the interior with all the officer quarters preserved as they were in 1901 is fascinating

For anyone interested the Cabourn site seems to have stock of the camouflage holdall and aircraft jacket, very limited numbers though.

My willpower completely wilted and I kopped the Indigo Mallory. And the waistcoat, lol. This is the only pic I have at the minute that captures the colour best but its still not quite right.



I didn't pay attention to what size I tried on last week and I think I must've tried on the next size up as this one is a little snug. Here's a quick fit pic I took before heading out yesterday. Would welcome thoughts on the shirt. Its a Cabourn Oxford from last year but is it too long to go for the untucked look underneath the waistcoat. I can't quite decide.

Looks great and that's exactly how I wear my Cabourn shirts - showing below the waistcoat as the lower placket detail doesn't lend itself for tucking into trousers

Snug is better as it fills the shape of the Mallory and kicks it out at the waist a bit more giving a more fitted look - plus it hangs more open at the front showing off the waistcoat

If you went for the next size up, I think the sleeves would be too long

The colour and the texture to the wool looks great too

This is my brand new second-hand Nigel Cabourn Somervell jacket in action (shirt is Patrik Ervel, x-post from the CM does SWD challenge). Now the weather is getting cooler here, it's becoming like my second skin... I am not going to baby it, and I am looking forward to seeing the way it will change as it gets more beaten up over the months and years.
