Coggles offering an EXTRA20 on all sale items. My Sunday order got dispatched today. Thinking of ordering the business jacket in size 46 aswell so I can try both on. But I can't really understand if the free returns are for real

Cabourn website is bursting forth as I post with his SS14 offering

£150 for a T-shirt, £500 for a cotton linen blazer, £350 for a vest, and best of all £250 for a WEB BELT - obscene pricing. Most will wait for the sales unless they are rather wealthy.

Yeah I think pricing has been getting more unrealistic year on year.

Costs won't have increased inline with those prices so most likely they're maximising profit by taking advantage of the brand's growing popularity and charging as much as they think they can get away with. It's possible they're also trying to realign themselves in the marketplace and appear more upmarket/.distance themselves from the competition.

As you rightly say there are the wealthy to which price isn't an issue but there are also a very significant number of 'fans' who upon release will buy pretty much anything with a Nigel Cabourn label.

Like you I'll be waiting for the sales.

growing popularity?? really? looking at most stores here in germany it´s more of a decline! even the biggest buyer in berlin is not ordering a lot anymore.. I am personally very sad about this and also because of the price increase!  unfortunately, NC is growing only out of my budget..

And even looking at most of the internet sellers it appears that the Cabourn buys are not what they used to be. Most of SS14 has been out and online for a while. There is very little Cabourn to be found. Perhaps they are concentrating on their Japanese market where most of the business appears to be done..

Barneys NY had a tiny AW13 collection when compared to AW12 - just one business jacket and the orange duffle. They just received SS14 which has the camo shirt jacket ( way too short imho - what were they thinking?)-orange Canadian- two t-shirts and the striped sweater. That's it- effectively the only Cabourn available in New York City- one of the most important markets in the world.
Even END seems to have very few pieces.

Was looking on the Cabourn website this morning just in case an army Aircraft jacket had popped up and came across them. They are very close to what I'm looking for. If anyone knows a stockist in a 36 then let me know.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90

I got these in rust brown a year or two ago. They're great but fit HUGE. I am a 36 waist and own these in 34 and even after hot-washing them to try and shrink them, they're still the biggest trousers I own by a long way. I'd definitely recommend them for the material and construction but you should try them in person if you can.
