But I have a more specific question for this thread: I definitely want to try on a large range of Cabourn as I have only ever seen about half the available range in person.
Will I need to go to one of the Cabourn flagships or are there any independents that carry all of Cabourn's inventory as well as other brands?
If I do go to a Cabourn flagship, does it matter which one, there seem to be quite a few in Japan?

The Army Gym in Naka Meguro will have the largest collection, and Isetan department Store in Shinjuku and Matsuya in Ginza will have a little less. Do visit the old flagship (along the river, called 82(?))in Naka Meguro too for sale stuff. If you're in Sendai visit the shop there, run by John Lofgren, a foreigner. Do be aware though that if you are slim, the Japanese made and patterned stuff will fit you well, but the patterns are local for their locally made stuff made for the Japanese physique. I`ve found that a 52 shirt made in Japan and made overseas (Italy) is very different. The Japanese one is a much tighter fit, with slightly shorter sleeves. They use great cottons, but after a few washes I wish I had gone one size up. They max out at 52`s with occasional 54`s.

Looks like a knock-out collection. Look forward to seeing it at Covent Garden.

Digging the fair isle crewneck sweater.

Both the fred perry collab and aw14 seems to be really strong collections. Think i try to spend my money on them instead for some bargain this season.
..btw i sent back the business jacket to coggles, it was picked up by them on 5th of june but they don't know where it is. So it's rather a hustle jacket as I don't seem get my refund now. I was warned i know but i thought that PATIENCE was the key to get what i wanted. My first order was placed in mid mars. Sorry for taking up this subject again but thought it was worth to mention.

did you send the jacket back tracked? can you not check the tracking number?

if the courier has lost it make a claim.

if it was picked up by Coggles own courier then they are responsible and they should refund you.

I second these points - Ferry, do not let them get away with their incompetence and deliberate attempts to charge people for clothes they send back

And I say it again for anyone tempted - stay clear of Coggles

When buying on the internet Buy from Cabourn outlets that have bricks and mortar shops and staff that care who can physically feel and see the clothes they are selling if any problems arise

Yes a have tracking number and it's has been delivered.. But I don't know which courier in England. First and last time I buy something from a company with the type of structure coggles have..
post #4418 of 4493

Anyone know details on the Fred Perry stuff? Where it's made, materials etc

 

Or is it just another branding excercise?

it has been discussed before on this thread but Coggles (Bricks & Mortars Store) went bust a while back and it is now just a mail order business.

If they have not refunded you you should contact your credit card company or PayPal and instigate a chargeback.

AW14 Mallory and vest:

 

 

Woven shirt as well.  Looks like it's charcoal grey.

 

The Fred Perry collaboration is part of SS15.  Really want to see the rest of SS15 though.  Anyway, a few more shots from the Fred Perry collaboration:

SS15's Authentic Collection will be a continuation of WW1 inspired pieces since it's the hundred year anniversary.  They're showing in Paris, New York, Berlin and Tokyo in the next two months.  Hopefully we'll get some pictures after the coming shows.

Why do you guys think the Denim Mallory is not proving to be popular, it's discounted to 50% at a few places and they have every size possible. I was going to get the Army one but I can see more money being shaved off as they don't seem to be moving at all.

For me, the blue denim one just looks terrible in all the pictures. The fact that so many retailers got it suggests that there must be something about it, so it may look much better in real life. I came round to the army denim one and thought about picking it up in the sales too. This one was the stand out for me though this season. Picked it up a wee while back and goes great with the deck pants I got. The fabric is beautiful.

Ended up grabbing the indigo sweatpants in the sale. Not really sure what I was thinking but I loved the colour. Should be here this week so hopefully they work out.

How is your Denim Mallory "wearing" in regards to the fabric. Assuming the denim may be starched and am wondering about creasing etc ? Which is something I would like.

 

Got one of the Cabourn zipped sweats and not a favorite piece as its cut a little short and is boxy in fit, still looking for the zip hoodie with the Ventile on the sleeves lol

 

Thanks

Not sure if you're addressing me but I don't have a denim one. Haven't seen the fabric either unfortunately.
