Can anybody comment on how to size the storm parka? Would a 48 work if I'm a 46 for the FW camerman and a 48 in the FW mallory?

I don't want the coat overly big. Pit to pit is suppose to be 22 and 19 for the arm length, which works for me. Thanks all in advance

I have briefly owned this exact storm parka along with an UnlinedMackintosh/ArmyTweed Cameraman, both tagged 48. The storm parka was JUST SLIGHTLY more generous than the cameraman. The difference was MINIMAL. Sold both and now I own a cape cameraman in 50.

I don't know, but I still want one in a 50!

Cashmere Navy Duffle on eBay in a size 48 - probably the one from Flannels.

Seller is claiming it fits like a Large.

Yes I noticed that - I would bet it is the one from Flannels as the 48 went a couple of weeks ago at around £1100
I think the description of it being large is quite accurate however I do think it looks better oversize and I think it was a deliberate intention to make them big. skinny fit or fitted duffles although very fashionable just don't look right to me - a bit too 'Top Man' if you Brits know what I mean!
Naval issue duffles were huge as they had to go over all dress including oilskins at times - if you look at old photos on the Gloverall website Monty wore his large and he was as skinny as me.

There's no doubt it's the one from Flannels. They still have the size 46 left priced at £1295 – £1100 must of been with a discount code I guess? That seller appears to specialize in Cabourn - and has somehow managed to list as a registered charity so won't pay any fees - saying that is it really worth the risk and outlay for less than a £300 profit?

I was really liking the green but I've started to feel the Navy might of been the one to go for as it's probably more of a classic/long-term colour.

And agree about the sizing, a Duffle only looks good worn oversized.

Love that jacket Eric. Tell me more about the LVC Chinos. Are they the 1920's? What is the fit like, size up or down?

Lovely day down here too, I put this lot on this morning.

Wide lapel jacket Ginger Harris Tweed

Short Vest Stone Harris Tweed

Medical Shirt

Air Ministry bow tie.

Absolutely superb
Love the ensemble - sublime

I don't know much about the Levi chinos - I am pretty sure they are from a 1920's design. Bought from Oki Ni in 2010 and they have been lovingly made to look vintage with worn patches which have denim cloth stitched from inside to reinforce by Levi. The are a true work of art and I can't think how many hours it took to produce them. they were supposed to be 30 waist but they are very oversize so I draw them in with a belt
They look great with a tight fitting smart sports blazer or any of my SS Cabourn jackets

Knowing Levi's, most likely knocked up by kids in a Turkish or Mexican sweatshop.

I've never really understood the attraction of distressed clothing, what am I missing?

Good clothing that is properly beaten up shows the world that you've been to hard places and done difficult things. That you have taste, but aren't vain and finicky about it. That you're the type of person who can bowhunt and field-dress a deer, then grill its haunches over a fire you've yourself started. Pre-distressed clothing is the LARP version of that.

Nice analogy. However, some degree of work is done on many materials, shirting is often heavily washed to soften it and I doubt many people have only ever bought raw denim jeans etc.

Those trousers are perhaps an attempt to recreate the character of an existing piece. I have seen Levis do this before, recreating a piece including its wear and tear.

Maybe its like an art print from an original.
