Looked at the label and it was made for the Japanese market as it's got the Outer Limits label - I guessed that might be the case as I scoured Europe when it first came out for a size 46 with no joy

The sleeves have been lengthened extremely neatly by inserting a lining of about 1 inch by the previous owner as the Japanese market is a little shorter as a standard western fitting

It's fits a treat


Looks great. I was wearing mine yesterday and got nothing but compliments. It's a real statement piece.

Hi all, just stumbled upon this which has a couple of good shots of a\w14 "coastal commander" jacket. And what looks like a "coastal commander gilet too, maybe women's line. Hope the link works I'm rubbish at technology.

Join the club on the technology front

Fantastic link thanks for posting - love the look of what we are all calling the AW14 (FW14) new Coastal Command jacket. It looks a treat

Don't think I'll be investing in another NC Shearling leather coat - my wardrobe rails won't take the weight!

Something I do now have two of though just for a couple of days are two Brady Jackets - size 46 and 48.

Just comparing them and I'm amazed at the differences which probably shows the skill and variances of the pattern maker

The 46 actually has a longer collar to the 48.
There is a hanging loop on the 46 and not on the 48.
Other than the general smaller dimensions in all directions of the 46 ,the lower two front pockets are slightly smaller in both width and height which I find really interesting and is a testament to the detail and craft of a pattern maker to getting the right look and balancing a garments size.

Its just a small detail. Maybe its the fact that its more of a SS piece I don't find it as substantial as NC FW offering. Either way I can't wait to use it during a rain to see how it does. Fit wise, its spot on.

We have two North-East neighbours landing at END. Waxwear specialist Barbour drop more pieces from a range of their premium lines while outerwear don Nigel Cabourn preps his SS14 range, due to land very soon!

Hi There,

 

Just saying hello and introducing myself.  I only started buying Cabourn clothing in September last year, I bought a Mallory jacket from Trunk - I wouldn't normally have looked at such a jacket but for £160 I thought it was certainly worth a try....and now of course I love it and have started on the slippery slope of buying Cabourn clothing :)

 

I recently picked up some stuff direct from the Cabourn website during their 50% off sale, and then I live outside the EU so I got the VAT off as well...nice.  

 

Aircraft Camo Jacket; 
Zip Crew Sweatshirt (Blue);
Beanie-Donegal (Green);
X Converse Plimsole (brown);
Rib Scarf (green);
Crew Neck Sweatshirt (blue);

 

Then I saw some a couple of bits at Flannels sale :

Army belt (Brown);
Short sleeve Grandad shirt (grey);

 

Now I need to rest a bit!  I shall be checking here regularly and satisfying my Cabourn retailers appetite vicariously through everyone else's posts!

 

Thanks,

 

David,

Nice

Welcome David and I look forward to more posts that join us on a slope more slippery and faster than sliding down the Sochi Sanki sliding centre, wrapped in a Nigel Cabourn beeswax parka.

Saw that End will be launching SS soon.  Kafka had two oxfords up late last night and now looks to have their whole offering up today:

 

http://www.kafka.co.uk/browse/NigelCabourn_0_452_0_de_c.html

 

Kafka is a great shop btw.  Great customer service in my experience.    

 

Cameraman is a bit different.  First time to the best of my knowledge that it's got a denim lower.  Lower is "Japanese denim", though no mention of it being selvedge.  I can see reasons for making it selvedge and for not.  Color is pretty standard.

 

Aircraft jacket is largely the AW offering without the Harris Tweed vest liner.  Actually a bit of a SS13/AW13 hybrid when you add the styling.  Looks nice and the colors will be different based on the little I've seen so far, so at least there's some difference there.  

 

Shirt jacket isn't a new style either, but now in camo.  Not sure if the camo on Kafka's site is the same from the preview pic on End's site though.  Color looks different.  The one on End's site is a new camo print, at least in terms of coloring.  

 

Hopefully the other shops land soon as well.  At least End is on the horizon and they usually have big buys.

End has some new stuff online now
post #3897 of 5226

Cabourn in at END

post #3898 of 5226

Well that was fast.  Had just checked End and didn't see it up. 

 

Cameraman has the now very old description, so no idea if it's ventile or mackintosh.  Kafka says bonded cotton, so mackintosh?  Anyway, same Cameraman as Kafka.  Wonder if they'll have other variants.

 

Canadian jacket is interesting.  Very different looks depending on what color you go for.  I'm curious as to what that little tab at the bottom right of the jacket is for.

 

CWP jacket reminds me of my ventile parka.  At least the belt is on the outside.  

 

Shirt jacket is nice in both camo variants which is to what I was saying above about the one Kafka is stocking.  The more traditional variant is great right off the bat, but I really like that indigo camo too.  Nigel's guy, Drew, was sporting that one in some of the Bread and Butter photos I've seen.  Looks much better in End's pics as you can see it's more indigo and less black than what I first thought.

 

Look at those measurements on the crewneck sweater!  Wow, looks massively oversized.  Model's even wearing a small which looks big on him.

 

Not a fan of the shirting.  Prefer the oxford shirts.

 

Still waiting for more as this must just be the tip of the iceberg.

What is the sizing like on the Everest Parka?

I usually wear a Large in other brands and I have a 42" chest.

Do they come up Large?

Size 50 or 52?

How tall are you?  Waist size?
