Can you even imagine the amount of import duties on that thing?? Ordering from End is the worst.

Any recommended North American stockists for Cabourn?

Can you imagine the amount of VAT they will deduct off the price when it's exported??

I'm pretty sure the prices on the US site already have it deducted.

Just curious, can anyone provide advice on sizing on the shearling jackets? I'm usually a 50 in the Mallorys, though they are a little big in the body. Looks like the shearlings run larger? I'm thinking I'd be a 48. @Eric Gill Sans?

Just looked at the measurements on End and the WW1 Shearling appears to run TTS based on their measurements.

Do you intend to wear knitwear under it?
post #6022 of 6318
Probably, but nothing huge like an Inverallan knit. According to End, the chest on the 48 is 45" (Cabourn site says 48"), which is plenty for me. Both of the models are 6'1" wearing a 48, and I'm 6'2" with a 39" chest.

Actually, it looks like End has reversed the measurements for the 48 and 50. Chest on the 48 is 43". I'm more looking at the fit in the models, who are a very similar size to me. That's the exact fit I'm looking for.

Anybody chime in on the fit of the King George Jacket? Wondering how one with size it compared to Cameraman and Mallory.



I know not a lot of people picked up this coat.

Difficult one to judge as I've got the Cabourn X AeroLeather Coastal command shearling from 2011 which is a tight size 46

The newer ones from 2013 are made by a different company that was called Alexander Leather now called Simmons Bilt so could be very differently sized

If you are after the 2011 Coastal Command second hand I would size up as the 46 is quite a tight fit

I tried it on at LN-CC in 2011 and I thought it was exactly sized as the Cameraman so TTS

It's the current WW1 shearling I'm after. Too bad they aren't still made by Aero. Going by measurements on a shearling is tough, but if I compare the End model (6'1", 37" chest) to me (6'2", 39" chest):

Here he is wearing a size 48 Mallory, clearly smaller (narrower in the shoulders and shorter in the sleeves) than my 50 on me, especially when viewed from the back.


And here he is wearing a 48 WW1 shearling, which would be my ideal fit. The strange thing is, the measurements of the 50 look better on paper.



I would imagine if he wore a 50 Mallory, it would be a fit similar to mine, so the 48 WW1 shearling is what I should go for. Anyone see any holes in my reasoning? I wish I could just try them on, and don't want to have to return one.

I'm going to go for the 48. I tried on my size 50 Mallorys, and they fit more like short coat for layering, and I had to have them taken in in the body.

Sorry for all of the obsessing.

I understand your reasoning and it makes sense but I do think the 50 will be better as they are pretty thick bulky jackets and if you are exactly 2" larger in the chest to the model and the model is wearing a 48 then again that would say to me the 50 is the one to go for

It is tricky and you might be right

OK go for it

Let us know how you get on

Thanks, Eric. It occurred to me that a 48 Mallory would probably fit me exactly the same as it does the End model.
