Looks more practical with the angled bottom pockets. The bottom pockets on the Everest jacket were straight down, making them rather awkward as hand warmers

True, but you could also slip your hands behind the pockets on the Everest, which I mostly do.

I think the "Everest" is plenty for the UK

 

However I could see the new parker working well as a Ski/Outdoor coat in Scandinavia or the Alps. (i.e. you could hang on the the terrace seat at the apres bar long after most people have gone inside.)

I really like the new design Maxi-Antarctic Parka

Quite by accident Nigel finds himself bang on the money producing a very large oversized parka just as all the big luxury fashion houses are doing the same - some at eye watering prices but without the originality or provenance that Nigel instills into his garments

My only critique on the new parka is that the pockets on mine and on the original are down filled and insulated to keep your hands toasty

On this, it looks like it's just Ventile with no insulation

However they are bigger and in a better position

On the subject of practicality for the UK, I have had plenty of wear out of mine in the UK over last 5 years, believe me

It can get pretty cold and it's been a bit of a life saver especially when we had those two very harsh winters back in 2010 and 2011

Now the Parka and pockets are bigger, you can't do the Sir Ed Hillary 'hands in pockets' walk

My Parka is beginning to look a bit grubby like this

Urghhh someone bought that indigo vest when I had it in my cart

Grabbed the cashmere wide lapel instead. How's the sizing on that jacket for those who have it?

Interesting, there was one Mallory jacket, clearly a sample, which seemed to have leather patches instead of the Ventile. Far too bright in my opinion in terms of contrast, but quite cool to see the concept. The description was wrong I think as it said Ventile - I guess it was the standard description. Very good sale... Wished they had pieces in size 50.

Really interesting sample sale at Marrkt.com

Some pieces going way back to the fab SS10 collection

Some goodies I haven't seen for a couple of years - like old friends !

Hopefully I've just bagged the Black Cold Weather parka in black oilcloth in a 44 as well as the fairisle knitted buttoned best in 44 and the green linen shirt jacket in 46

I say hopefully as the the site crashed on me as I checked out and so I had to email Lewis to sort

But nice to see some great items from old collections

Were there any good styles in 50?  Just got on 5 minutes ago and it looks all 48s with not much to choose from.

No 50s at all... I checked their website right before they sent out the newsletter. However, a lot of good items in 48s. Mallories, Cameramans, Everests, Shirts, Cashmere Wide Lapel etc etc.

 

Good catch for everyone who managed to pick up something in their size!
