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

Yes I looked at FreeWheelers and thanks to you Mister Freedom. Really nice stuff - but I'm an older man, with a little gut - this stuff would never fit me. Sad...

Cro'Jack - Made in England - very decent quality: http://www.crojack.co.uk/p-127/nuffa Web site pictures are awful, products are much nice in real life

Universal Works (wrong season for their tweed stuff, but might find some old stock somewhere) : http://www.universalworks.co.uk/universal-works-charcoal-quilted-drayton-jacket-in-tomas-1

Common People - fits quite slim so size up. Made in UK - http://commonpeopleclothing.co.uk/shop/sale/fluorine-jacket.html http://commonpeopleclothing.co.uk/shop/sale/magnesium-norfolk-jacket.html

They'll all work well with Cabourn pieces, without looking like Cabourn copies. Not as good quality, but still very decent.

I'd also add Old Town to that list.

Thanks for the links - I really like the Nuffa

I really like the Old Town stuff but on their site they only size up to 46. I would be on the high end of 46 or a narrow 48.

As they make to order it's worth giving them a ring. At that size the Cro'Jack Nuffa is out - XL is at best a 45 chest.

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.

Ironically, ARN made the first trousers for Cabourn. I have several pairs of the early Cabourn trousers that they made, and I have to disagree on the fit, quality, and style. They're by far the nicest trousers I own. Neil at ARN has a real eye for cut and patterning. That said, I also bought a pair of new beat trousers from Flannels a while back, and they were cut so small and short that I gave them to my wife.

Yes, I think that Old Town is my best bet. I did e-mail them - thanks to everyone for the responses!

Just ordered a dark navy Mallory from UshowU. I've wanted one of these for years now, so I'm excited to be able to wear it in ~6 months when the weather cools. Went with a 54 in the end as I figured it would be the best overall fit (based on the measurements they supplied).

I had that in mind, so I had high expectations on them. I knew that they were short. But so am I. But if I don't roll them I have the look of a boy who has grown out of his pants. But the worst thing for me is the rise it's not any generous so you get a camle toe not very comfy or stylish IMO. On top of that one of the belt loops has loosen.
If compare these with my tommys pant or Bombay bloomers, Arns new beat chino are not even close to the same standard.

I believe you that Arn are making some great stuff. But the new beat pant definitely raise some questions.

Hah, yeah, I'm not sure what went wrong with that trouser. Come to think of it, I think mine also had one loose belt loop.

Yes, that is a wonderful jacket but the Old Town jackets are so much more reasonable in price - don't you think.

I need to see a bit more come off the price before I go for it...butI'm tempted to try one of the Taped Ventile Aircraft Jackets ,  can anyone comment on how the orange colour looks in the flesh, it appears a dark sort of burnt  orange rather than a bright fruit orange.  And sizing, for a 37 ‘’ chest I’m going  a size up in 48 hoping it won’t be too long in the sleeves or big?  The only NC jacket I tried was a lined Surface jacket 48 which was too tight around my shoulders. .

 

 appreciate it

The Ventile Aircraft is a "Reglan" sleeve and they run large through chest etc. Have one in the 50 and could have sized down to a 48.

 Its a great jacket, very light weight and breathable/windproof etc.

 

 I like it better then the light weight "Veilance" shell I have......

 

Good luck.
