it doesn't say it's a Sample Sale - it says it's a Deadstock Sale.

Yes if you click on the "about" page it mentions "sample pieces", but that's not indicated clearly in the main NC Sale page.

Yes. The law in the UK states that you can send it back for any reason as you did not have a chance to see the item in person prior to receiving it. I tried to arrange a return to oi polloi due to a cabourn surface jacket I ordered being a lighter shade than appeared in their photos and had to threaten them with getting trading standards involved due to their refusal to accept a return. They also need to refund you any postage charges they charged you to send the item. I've had various retailers try to get out of that one. They all know the law but choose to either a)ignore it and hope the consumer knows no better or b) lie about it as oi polloi did in the case I mentioned above.

Distance selling regulations is a European directive. it cover all mail-order / online purchases with-in the European Union.

From the 13th June 2014 it has been replaced with the Consumer Contracts Regulations.

You will now have up to 14 days to cancel/return goods - previously it was 7 days.

What I don't know is if you have the same rights if you make the purchase from a country outside of the UK/Europe?

There was no current season stuff on the sale. I think it only went up to SS13. If you have your heart set on the washed army, have you thought about the cold weather parka? Different style obviously but looks a nice piece. Cabourn website still has a 48.

Good catch I didn't even realize that with the missing tags. Wish they put the mesurements like they did last sale.

What is the difference between a Tenzing and the Notch Work Jacket?

The cold weather parka looks nice, but I really like the asymmetric zipper on the Canadian.For some reason there was a Canadian jacket in washed green in the last sale. But I went with the FW surface jacket instead. I can't say I regret that decision.

Just an FYI (if it wasn't mentioned yet) to make sure and look at all photos. I noticed the NIGEL CABOURN X EDDIE BAUER QUILTED JACKET has a small hole in the front.

Does it fit true to size?
post #4467 of 4493
I am usually a 50 in Cabourn.
In denim/linen I have the suit jacket and pop over shirt both in 50 and both are a little large. I have the jacket pictured in a 48 and the fit is fine.
If you buy your normal size it may feel a little over sized till you wash it, buy a size smaller it will fit fine but may need to be dry cleaned. I think some one else here had the suit jacket and washed it and there was only a small bit of shrinkage. The 48 is 22 inches pit to pit . The guy in the photo from cultizm usually models Cabourn in 50 (always looks over sized) but with this jacket it was a 48.

Is this the suit jacket?

post #4469 of 4493
Yep that is the suit like jacket, I missed out on the trousers and unlike most people I like the Texas tuxedo look. I think the trousers came up large also with a small being 32 inch. I am still on the look out for the trousers...and a fox duffel(2009)...and a Japaneses white oxford with black stripes ...and all the rest.
I think Eric Grill has the suit jacket and washed it with only a small bit of shrinkage.

I think Coggles has that jacket in their Sale and there didn't appear to be any interest in it. Think it was 50% off for ever - I guess they eventually marked it down further at some point?

Kind of regret not picking it up now – that colour is classic.
