Ha ha yes a wee bit daft - trying to do a selling job on those it won't fit

Maybe it ought to be hung up on a wall in a glass frame!!

I'm somewhat limited in what I can say (they'd rather keep specific details under wraps until July), but the fabrics look great and the collection is focused more around reproducing old favorites than bringing in new styles. In a week or two I'll post a thread on the front page which shows some shots of the collection on racks - no close ups. The Filson x Cabourn collaboration is Cabourn's take on some classic Filson pieces, produced by Filson. The pricing will be on the high end of Filson's, but below Cabourn mainline.

Manufactum stuff just looks cheaper and the pricing isn't too far off the real mccoy.

 

As for the Cameraman, don't get the hype about the ventile version with the tweed vest insert.  I'd be curious how it fits/looks on with the vest snapped in as the vest sounds somewhat fitted based on the measurements where as the Cameraman is not.  I feel as though it's pull on the jacket at the snap points making for an odd fit.  Not to mention one could just pick up a SS13 version, buy the vest separately, and get the same look for less.  I guess I'll see when my Aircraft version arrives at that piece is even less fitted than the Cameraman.  And while I could apply the same logic I am to the Cameraman to the Aircraft as regards the SS13 version, the AW13 Aircraft has different pockets and hardware while the Cameramen are essentially the same.  

 

Anyway, took delivery of the AW13 cashmere Cameraman in navy.  Amazing coat.  I love the Harris Tweed versions as well, but this is IMHO the best AW Cameraman ever.  Cashmere is thick and soft.  Classic navy Cameraman too.  Just gets me wondering where all the rest of the cashmere/AW styles end up going.  I only saw the cashmere variant of the Cameraman at End for instance.  Or take the bench coat for example.  Only saw it at Barneys and UshowU.  Or take my quilted Eddie Bauer Mallory from AW12.  Only saw it at Haven and then on Marrkt.  Great piece btw that quilted Mallory.  So warm in the freezing Midwest temps.

I always ask for the store to mark as gift and low value, but some don't want to do that and they usually lose the sale unless I am desperate. Barneys and some other stores now have a system where you pay all import duties at point of sale, which is neat but I would prefer not to and take my chances the Post Office doesn't pick up on it. I went through a phase of buying a lot of Mister Freedom and used to order it from a small store in Japan and it worked out significantly cheaper than purchasing from the USA + the store always marked it as gift/low value - never once paid import. stuff would also arrive with-in about 3 days.

there is some psychology in Sale shopping, you probably had some buyers watching the Peacoat and edging their bets, then all of a sudden it sells out at one store and they panic buy and hence it's sold out at both. It's pretty likely NC will have something very similar in AW14.

The Gloverall Duffles are good value for money but they are really not that nice IMO. Ralph Lauren have quite a nice one in their Purple collectionl, saw it a few weeks ago reduced down from £2,500 to £1000 but it's not Cashmere! CP Company and Paul Smith have made some good ones, but they don't have anything in their current collections. Maybe get one custom made.

 

Yeah, it's been 10% all told.  Usually from End orders.  All depends on the shop.  I have a contact at one UK shop and another is great about marking down items.  I hear that latter shop is great in person as well.  One thing I will say about End is that it's FedEx priority and that it's only $12 out of the gate for shipping before that 10%.  

 

That's the exact psychology I think I ran into.  I was hedging my own bets, just a bit too slow on the draw.  I've actually tried it.  Nice piece, but felt the Billy Reid Bond version was actually better.  Have slimmed down some since trying both so I'd be unsure on sizing.  Think the 50 would have worked and would have liked the Cabourn at that price.  AT first preferred the Billy Reid, but actually prefer the aesthetic of the Cabourn now.  Not that I need another coat much less a Cabourn.  

 

Gloveralls vary in quality in my experience.  I have a few and the fabrics range from worn looking to a nice melton.  Well if the Ralph Lauren's Purple label is anything like RRL or Denim and Supply, then spring for the Cabourn.  Massive mark up on RL if you ask me.  I bought a few RRL pieces from AW13, but returned most of it.  Quality and fit was all over the place despite pricing being consistent within the brand.  Anyway, as you noted about RL's, it's not even cashmere.  Now I want the NC version and I only have one person to blame.  You!

Hmmm.  While I'd never buy one not to wear it, at least not at NC pricing, I do consider my coats part of my outerwear collection.  Again, don't get me wrong, I rotate my Cabourn, Barbour and whatever else and I live in a climate where outerwear is an eight to maybe nine month necessity/possibility, but I still plan on keeping them for a long time.  I think it's in part my age and having stuff I'll hopefully feel comfortable in in say twenty to thirty years.  Anyway...  :embar:

It's pricey to buy it now at £800 which is rather steep for second hand regardless of condition but certainly cheaper than it would have been to import and buy new and is open to sensible offers.

That's from Phaeton, they still have a few (not that size in that colour though) and are asking £560 for them so I'm guessing £800 is about what you'd pay new after shipping and tax.

While we're on the subject of Japanese stores selling Cabourn, does anyone know of any others besides Phaeton? I'd quite like to try picking up a couple of pieces in 44 which the western stores don't usually bother stocking.

Japan: The Rugged Museum sell Cabourn. (And The Army Gym, of course.)

post #3731 of 4851

Hey folks!

 

It's I selling the Surgeon jacket.

 

The description isn't as silly as it sounds. I'm not trying to widen my customer base by saying the p2p doesn't matter. It most certainly does, otherwise, like stated above, there is still a few of the Surgeon jackets available in large sizes.

This is most definately a collectors item, but i do think it should be worn. I have 7 Mallorys and other Cabourn pieces and they all get worn all the time. I just thought this jacket was too valuable in the Limted Edition run and the rarity of a size 1 (46) outside Japan made it even more so.

 

I realise £800 is a lot, but it's never been worn outside and will only get more sought after in my opinion. I would take slightly less, but not much. I'd rather keep it than let it go for a low price.

I paid full price on this and then paid silly money at UK customs, so this cost me almost £1000 in the end, that's reflected in the asking price.

 

I will put it in the market place here now for anyone interested.

Everything fits well and looks fantastic! Especially that waistcoat.

I picked up the zip cardigan in navy at the 50% off sale on volls. Awesome piece. Still there in a 50 and on the NC site in a 48. It's really warm and rugged and the fit is really nice, not as boxy as you'd expect. The collar stays down nicely when you zip up the brass zipper, which is a great detail, or you can pop the collar if it's really cold and windy, but it's not really meant to be worn that way all the time like a SNS stark. My only complaint is the lack of pockets, and it's a decent complaint considering it's heavy enough to wear without a coat.
