    Needs a centralized thread with stockists, pictures, etc. I'm def not an expert but I know some of you guys love what he does. I personally like the "Everest" series, especially the tweed jackets with reinforced shoulders.

    I got one of the Indian khaki bags a while back, for (relatively) cheap. It's my favorite thing that I own - clothing included. If you get the chance, definitely grab one.

    Not so much a fan of the clothing, at least from a (personal) aesthetic standpoint, but you can tell that a lot of love and care goes into each one. The jackets are amazing, though.

    Love them in blue + the photographer's coat, much less in the colour you picked and with the bad photography.. I don't even own technical outerwear and I'd probably wear this. I dunno why I waited to start the thread, dude has been around for a while. Of course the problem right now is that I need to heavily prune my closet, it just feels like I have 3-4 complete wardrobes. I wish I could get rid of things, I did get rid of a bunch of stuff this year. I hate the shoes and the shot isn't that nice but that colourway is great: [​IMG]

    I like certain elements of workwear and have done so for a while, I just can't stand the shoes (always disgusting) and blind adherents who parot MC wisdom about "timeless style". It's still fashion.

    Well the coat I posted is around $1250, less in the UK and continental Europe. Go to Junya or MMM and try to get a heavy coat for this price, they'll laugh at you. It really depends how you see it, from the point of view of a client buying designer items it is ok pricing. There is no real need for this tech stuff, it's just luxury and styling choices.

    Ive been looking around for a non-$800 version of this style coat and havent found anything.
    Nice series of stuff.

    He has some very nice bags that are in the classic British field style made of twill, leather and Harris tweed fabrics.

    I understand his brand is growing well in Japan. I had a very hard time locating it in London recently.

    Cabourn seems to be on to something. I like the story behind his work. He has also been a long-time collector of vintage clothing especially associated with the military.

    I like his approach to fashion, he's definitely a british icon. His attention to detail, way of sourcing the fabrics etc. is very Visvim-like. He's supposed to have a mad archive of vintage, authentic military/workwear pieces that he's been collecting from all over the world for decades.

    You should ditch that Cucinelli part-time playboy bullshit and wear this stuff, it is def age appropriate (i.e. it fits guys 40+ even better).

    I really like the Storm Parka:

    And I've wanted the clip jacket forever, but other purchases keep on getting in the way. If anyone gets me this in a Eu50, I'll let them post a bunch of special flower threads:

    His pieces look like the few Visvim pieces I liked (also British-inspired).

    LOL @ jet.

    I feel like his stuff is priced at the high end for "workwear." For someone who purchases Junya or MMM, then yes--it is priced reasonably. For someone who purchases EG, WWM and similar brands--it is priced pretty high.

    His flannels are $400+....although I suppose they are "reversible" so you are getting 2 for the price of 1 [​IMG]
