Good post. Cabourn is superior to the brands you mentioned but Japanese brands like Freewheelers, Real Mccoy's, Dapper's, Jelado, Stevenson Overall etc offer better quality at the same price point. The Japanese brands set the standard for Cabourn to follow.

I highly doubt they are superior. I couldn't imagine any Cabourn pieces being made better than they are now. What other way could they be improved? I think the Real Mccoy's stuff is way overpriced.

It's one piece that got away
I was considering it for ages - corniche had one in size 46 but with so many interesting pieces in the Scott collection, I spent elsewhere
Regret it now as I like a long overcoat and it looked fantastic
All sold out as far as I know
End, Corniche, Kantarus & Barneys were the only online shops to have it outside of Japan as far as I can remember

Hmmm... annoying. I will have to look around. I had been all set to buy a Belstaff Milford when they were re-issued, but a bunch of Sherlock cosplayers picked them all up. A good great coat is hard to find.

As someone who as owned multiple Cabourn and Freewheelers garments - Freewheelers is a level above.

Small world! Two friends bought a beautiful place up here and I'm freeloading. We went to Terni's. Great store. I love that diner on the other side of the street...

What I did in 2003 when we did the limited edition, I’d say that all of those pieces stand in my mind as some of the best pieces we’ve done and to be honest the limited collection I did in 2003 was the nucleus of what we do today. I’d say from 2003 we really became the way I wanted the company to be and I’d say over the last eight years I’ve really been making what I want to make. I don’t make anything I don’t enjoy.

How is it a limited edition when the Everest Parka has been repeated season after season?

Yes good point - to be fair it wasn't until 2010 that the Parka was reissued in the Authentic range - in orange and blue
Before then it was redone in orange and navy for the Utility at Debanhams using more cost effective materials
The original ones for the Everest collection were numbered and comprehensively labelled and used deadstock Pertex - I don't know how many were made but I don't think anyone who has one would be all that upset that it has been reissued in the Authentic range as the piece has become even more desirable and the price has tripled
I bought mine in 2010 when it was around £1500 retail

Utility was the designers for debenhams range he produced. I may be telling you something you already know but debenhams is a high street store in the UK. I would reckon the quality and materials wouldn't be as good on the utility range.

I remember looking at the limited collection in 2003, I believe Liberty, Duffer and Mr Start in London stocked various pieces. I recall Liberty had a special display. The Parka at that time had a retail price of £800 which seemed like silly money at the time, but I know they sold really well.

How does something that retails for £1500 in 2010 increase to £2400 with-in 3 years?
