    I'm finding it difficult to see actual differences between the Mallory and Tenzing, apart from a small difference in placement of the buttons (and even there it's inconsistent between various Tenzings). Heres a Tenzing off the NC website, and it appears much closer to a Mallory in button placement:

    And here a Mallory, again linked direct from cabourn.com. The bottom button is about an inch higher up than on the Tenzing. Can we play spot the difference for other differences? :)

    The Tenzing is slimmer and a tad longer, is usually worn an extra closed button and a metallic hook to close the jacket instead of a complementary throat protection...

    I bought everest parka a few days ago. (but it is aw11. not 12)
    anybody know, how much is there goose down in everest parka?
    Usually, in care label or tag, there must be like this info: 80% down 20% feather
    But there is no information in my parka. I want to know why there is no information.
    Because I thought, there must be information in clothes.
    (There is just info about textile -ventail-. )
    I sent e-mail to nigel. but he did not answer.

    What kind of Goose down?
    ex: Grey feather goose or White feather goose
    It's very expensive but there is very few information about parka.
    Of course, I have already resurched on internet but I think it's not exact information.
    I couldn't find details.
    I couldn't know, where goose feather comes from. (from Hungary or from Canada)
    anybody know?

    That's not the info about the jacket. Why do you say unnecessary things?

    My skyliner says 85% goose down. Doesn't say the type. I think that the Everests are made by phd down in England and should be similar if not better. Frankly the NC Tweeds are better made then the downs.

    A mistake surely?. The Mallories and other products more or less correspond to prices elsewhere, but all the down jackets are way cheaper..
    Or maybe down is exempt from tax in Denmark or something.. ??

    Hi

    I've been unsuccessfully trying to find out what the difference between a Classic Mallory and a Mallory tweed jacket is, if any. Stoy-munkholm.com has priced the Mallory tweed jacket a bit lower.

    Is it just that those are previous season's models or is it the color, or is a classic Mallory heavier tweed?

    I'm trying to find one which could be worn even under -10 C in the winter with some layering.

    Thanks.

    Good question, Flumestory! I was wondering the same when I was looking at their website just the other day.

    I wore my army stripes Mallory earlier this week in around -15 C, with a Mallory waistcoat under. A little cold on the arms, but almost too warm otherwise. I was out and about for around an hour on each occasion, so a pretty decent test of it. A thin sweater would have worked even better, but I had neglected to bring that.

    Today I wore a lambswool sweater and the jacket worked very well in about -8 C.

    Ok, I think I see it now... The clue is in this photo (which only comes up if you open their photo viewer and step through all the photos):

    [​IMG]

    The Centenary label tells us this is the 2011 version (Harris Tweed celebrated 100 years of the Orb label then).

    So their Classic versions are the 2012 versions, the "regular" versions are 2011. Or am I totally wrong?

    Whoever won the flannels auction on ebay for the wax/tweed jacket, let me know if you get rid of it due to fit or whatever. I'd be interested.
