Japanese made 'Mainline' rather than 'Authentic'. Great quality, not that light-weight and a tad-slimmer fitting than the tweed versions.

This photo from a Japanese site is pretty accurate:


Nice looking jacket, saw it but had second thoughts because of the fabric (jersey knit ?)...Have you handled the denim Mallory and if so how would you compare the two, weight and feel etc..

 

Thanks and enjoy

Sorry - I've not handled the denim Mallory. The Jersey reasonably heavy and tightly knitted - definitely not T-shirt weight, and heavier than my ancient cotton Tenzing. Spring and late summer wear appropriate but will probably be too warm for mid-summer.

More stuff available at marrkt. Mainly size 48. Blue CWP for just 450£ is the highlight in IMO

I'd have snapped up the Donegal Business Jacket if it had been a 54 rather than a 52. The ltd ed Ponting in 54 is nice, but I don't wear down enough.

@migsy999

I was meaning to ask this at the time as you must be one of the few people here with direct experience with the Surgeon jacket - does it fit similarly to the Mallory jackets?

I've been looking at some of the Japanese stockists, but not sure if I should be thinking of sizing down or whatever.

Yeah mate. Was pretty much a similar fit.
Bought a size 1 from japan. Was like a 46 Mallory.
Didn't suit me though so I sold it. Lovely jacket though.

That's good to know, thanks!

The Grey Bench coat arrived from Marrkt yesterday

Really like it - the finish looks like neoprene - it looks like cotton bonded using some sort of rubberised solution on to Harris Tweed
The labelling suggests it was intended for the non Japanese market so can't understand why these weren't on the market until this sale

It is the size 44 which fits a treat

The blue one looks cool.

Orange all the way…

How about none of them as they aren't Cabourn and they look like some horrible modern technical outerwear with no provenance or historical detailing - can get something that looks like that for £40 from Go Outdoors or a Tresspass outlet shop

Think you might be being a little bit harsh there. Christophe must have almost as big a vintage collection as Nigel and these jackets aren't a million miles away from the surface jacket. I'd hazard a guess that they're based on the same (or similar) vintage pieces. Can't comment on these jackets but based on the Mister Freedom jacket I own (Mulholland Master) and the other stuff I've handled, it's high quality stuff and the fabrics are definitely stand outs. @zissou can probably say a bit more about MF as I understand he has or had quite a few items. However, if we're just saying that we don't like these jackets then I'm inclined to agree with you.

I'll agree related to Mister Freedom being very high quality using exceptional fabrics. I have somewhere around 10-12 MF garments, mostly from the original Naval Tailor line. MF was my introduction to heritage clothing, and I remember each garment blowing my mind on first look. Much of it used to be made by Sugar Cane to exceptionally high standards. I no longer wear a few of the MF garments that I have, but couldn't imagine getting rid of them. I'd put Mister Freedom and Nigel Cabourn on very equal levels, with the exception that Cabourn pricing is getting insane, and the quality of some Cabourn has gone downhill in recent years.

That said, I like the Sea Hunt collection. But, I don't know that I care to look even more like a Navyman marooned in the middle of the western US than I already do. The Okinawa Topsiders look fantastic, but I'm not sure I should drop $400+ on a pair of trousers at this point.
