Nigel Cabourn - Page 389

Fair point, i guess i was told from the offset it would be made overseas and have not really looked at their website - but if others feel they are being misled then clearly they are not being transparent enough in the description.

I also buy the Lybro / Mainline stuff from Speedway Japan which does state on the links the country of origin.

http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/8011180000-olive/?s-id=borderless_recommend_item_en

The Lybro Jacket was under £200 at current rates, and i get the Heavy Officers BD Oxfords for around £100 as they are the Mainline Japanese ones, so work out a good deal compared to UK pricing.

From reading the description on this item, it states that fabric and attachments are from Europe / Japan and i noticed the Made in China / Hk label in my Lybro jacket is attached to an Outer Limits Japan label which is the same as in many of the Mainline garments so maybe many fabrics are Japanese but items are put together in China / HK?

There was a size 48 navy one in the London Army Gym the other day

Just to let you know that Manufactum UK has got a great price on the Green Tenzing in a few sizes which is near identical to the Mallory (throat latch and lining are the only differences) and also a great price on the Surface jackets

Nigel Cabourn 2016 Spring/Summer Collection
Revered British designer Nigel Cabourn presents a new collection with some very unique influences.

For next year’s spring/summer season, British fashion designer Nigel Cabourn has released a curated selection of looks that explore his affinity with military-inspired outerwear and functional vintage reintroductions. The collection takes the form of dated western silhouettes while referencing the workwear of coal miners and their more affluent counterparts from years gone by. The color palette has been limited and features little more than five predominant colors including shades of indigo navy, military green, seasonal off-white and beige with styled combinations hinting at the casual wear of early Navy Seal cadets. Most pieces are loosely tailored and introduce the use of functional pocketing and patchwork fabric overlays to solidify their references and direction. Most importantly, 30% of the collection has been constructed in collaboration with original 1920s Liverpudlian workwear manufacturer Lybro, whom of which also supplied the props used throughout. More information is soon to made available directly at Nigel Cabourn’s official website.


Don't know who is doing Press for Cabourn, but are they really getting their facts right? As far as I'm aware LYBRO went bust many years ago, Nigel has bought the rights to use the name. This article is somewhat misleading IMO, as are the labels that state LYBRO in collaboration with Nigel Cabourn. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

You might be right but it depends on the legal rights to using the Lybro name

When Lybro went bust someone or a company will more than likely have retained the right to use the Lybro name and they might only grant a licence for Nigel to use the name

He or one of his businesses might have just bought the rights to use the name under licence in which case calling it collaboration while not strictly true (as Lybro doesn't exist as a manufacturer or design house) Would be a good way of differentiating the new from the old

If I were Nigel, I would want may name on the label as well as Lybro so calling it a collab is pretty canny

Pretty pleased with my latest EBay purchase

This completes the collection of Nigel's promo books and it also catalogues my favourite of his collections- the SS10 which was pretty stunning

I still regularly wear my yellow Mandalay pack away coat which is one of my favourites

It's very easy to have the NC name on the label, without the collaboration pretence.

Ahh, I didn't know that one existed! Must find... I have the other two. Actually, I don't have the Mike Hawthorn book either.

These trousers were the first Cabourn item I owned.

I've never seen it

No, 30's

Just browsing YouTube and found this which I had missed

I know many of you (and me ) have a bit of a downer about Karrimor and Flannels being part of Mike Ashley's empire but I do quite like the look of the rucksack jacket and I missed out on getting the Irvine jacket from 2009

I wouldn't worry about missing the "Accent of Cabourn", it's regular geordie, pet :-)

 

 

I'd like to see that silly rucksack jacket used with something actually IN the rucksack. I can't imagine that construction will hold up to actual backpack use.

I'd carry my lunch in it while riding my motorbike.

Anyone know how the Cabourn x Red Wing Munson boots fit? Are they actually a size bigger than marked? Size comparisons with other common brands?
