Really, any sizing advice would be awesome.

A 54 should be okay - I'm a 43 chest and take generous 42 suits or less generous 44s and can easily get a thick sweater under a Harris Tweed Mallory in a 54. If you're looking at the matching Mallory vest though, I'd advise sizing up to a 56 for that.

Not going for the matching vest and thanks for the advice. I'm thinking I'm possibly somewhere between the Mallory 54 and 56. If I went for the 54 would there be some possibility of letting it out an inch or so in the chest? I do have a very competent tailor near me.

I've not attempted to have one tailored, but if you think you're between sizes I'd go up and have it tailored down (or wash it for shrinkage). If you're a 44 suit though I'm pretty sure a 54 would do you.

Enjoy, a great jacket.......

Thanks guys!

This is a 50, not vested (the cameraman 'classic'). I sent back the 48 vested ('new' cameraman style), was a bit tight if I wanted to layer.

Can't see it in the photos, but the indigo Harris tweed colour is incredible; a wide spectrum of blues and even some purple, I can take a photog in sunlight if anyone cares.

I have that one too.  Got a really good from Flannels.  I have the indigo Mallory as well, but I prefer the Cameraman myself.  Like the contrast of the dark navy ventile with the indigo Harris Tweed.  As I've said before, looks sooo much better than the vested Cameraman.  Anyway, looks great.  Enjoy!

am a 44R in a suit but wear a 56 tailored in at the pits, mallorys are very narrow on the shoulders so if you are broad shouldered i would size up and get it altered to a perfect fit, i have had two 54 mallorys (aw11-12) that i moved on because the fit didnt work

A question; on jackets like the Mallory and others, does Nigel Cabourn manufacture these themselves or is all the work subed out to other companies? And which companies, if anyone knows.

Mallorys by Panache in London
Camerman by Macintosh
Cold weather Parka by Cookson & Clegg
Knitted items made by Future Textiles
Antartic parkas made by PHD

The above are Nigel's main manufacturers and he has always been very transparent about who makes his clothes

All these companies are listed in his limited edition books with descriptions of where they are and their provenance

^Thanks for the post.........By limited edition books you do not mean the "style" books that come with some purchases ?

Thank you. BTW - does anyone else make the kind of rugged sports coat like the Mallory?

^ I would take a look at "FreeWheelers" Great Lakes GMT.MFG.CO...More mid century American sportswear then English but none the less very nice.

I don't know what you're looking for specifically but some of the Mister Freedom stuff could possibly fall into that category.

I've been trying quite hard to wear my newly purchased new beat pant from Arn the last couple of weeks. I don't think they are in same league as cabourn when it comes to quality, fit and comfort or style not even near to be fair. Maybe this specific pant has a quite special fit which may not fit everyone. They fit me poorer then any pant I owned I think. Fabric is nice but not necessary nicer then any of my cabourn bottoms. Don't think I would try to buy any more Arn if it was possible.
