Really want to like the Canadian jacket but the zip spoils it for me.

Has anyone had any bad experience with coggles my order status is just in process, and has been that since Sunday. No money has been withdrawn yet.

the zip looks ridiculous and spoils a decent looking jacket

Yeah, I'm not sure of the Canadian jacket.  Not bad, but not great either.  Rather prefer the Aircraft in a general sense.  I think I said it looked like an Aircraft jacket for AW14, but it was actually a Canadian jacket in wool/tweed that they're doing.

 

Kafka has a couple of new pieces.  Different color of the Mallory along with the Mountain Jacket.

 

The same photographer has done a shoot for AW14.  Have to keep our eyes open for the pictures.

Each to their own - the zip is the main detail that makes it for me.

'Rediculous' is not a term I would use or agree with to describe an angled zip which was a design feature on some military aircraft and leather jackets including the original Canadian Airforce Bomber Jacket which inspired the Cabourn Canadian Jacket

I quite like the asymmetrical zip. For me it's the exposed contast taping and the way it doesn't run quite all the way up and down. Also looking at all the various product shots, they all look uneven and poorly finished. Perhaps due to the fact that riri was designed to run vertically and placed on the inside of the jacket? 

As I mentioned before, I think it's a shame as I really want to like that jacket. It's almost identical to a some really nice Paul Smith jackets from the late 80's/early 90's but the asymmetrical zips were concealled. Also my mind may be playing tricks on me but I'm fairly sure I owned a yellow Cabourn pullover/smock version of that jacket around the same time.

Post entitled 'Canadian RCAF flight jackets with slanty zips'

 

Its obviously the green Cold Weather one ( the Q211 ) which has inspired the details to Nigel's SS14 Canadian Jacket

Coggles is legit but the company has been through a lot of changes in the last year. I'm working in York at the moment and when I was last here it was always a good place to spend a lunchtime. I was a little a surprised when I went up a few weeks ago to have a look around and found all of their shops closed. And it looked like they had been closed for some time. A little bit of googling found me this article - http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10491461.All_staff_laid_off_as_the_Hut_Group_buys_York_retailer_Coggles/ and there are others on google you can find from various fashion and retail websites too.

I'd say that given the company who bought them that the business will be around for a while yet and may actually become stronger as they have a habit of buying brands that move into administration. I'd guess your order will be dealt with in due course and either they'll be in contact with you or you might want to drop them an email to see whats happening.

The interesting thing for me is, given that they made everyone associated with the original business redundant, is who is doing the buying now and will the company change as a result. I've seen some changes in the emails they send out but they're still picking up new brands and from what I read the company was back int he black at the end of last year so they may be back on track already.

Good spot Eric.

This Q210 was the first to pop up on my google search and this is available on ebay but there appear to be quite a few variations 207 etc (maybe size?) plus some without hoods.

 

To my eye the zips sit and look so much better on the original pieces.

 

Although no doubt deliberate, the Cabourn version looks like the zip was accidentally attached to the wrong side of the jacket!

That's strange since the contrast taping and the length of the zipper are probably what I like best about the jacket. Also when you say "they all look uneven and poorly finished". How so? I just looked at the shots on end and flannels and cannot see what it is you are objecting to. What is wrong for example in this pic?

Looks like the Camo print trench coat is up at Corniche, kinda hard to tell from the pictures what it's really like.

What's strange? A difference of opinion?

 

In your close up although the overstitching is slightly pissed it wouldn't bother me but the gap between the top stop and tape end athetically looks bad .

However for me the problems are more visable in the full length shot I posted. It's uneven. You can clearly see the stress on the taping fabric where it's wider at the top than the bottom. There also look to be signs of buckling on tape and elements midway.

Now this shouldn't affect the function/gearing of elements because taping material purposely has give, and presumably if natural fibre has been preshrunk, but to my eye it does look messy, uneven and unfinished because it was designed to do it's work unseen and concealled.

 

Admittedly I haven't seen this jacket in the flesh yet, I'll check it out at the weekend but from the product shots I've seen I think the zip design ruins what would have been a very nice spring jacket.
