    Just looking on the End website, is it me or are the pictures mixed up on the Rangoon Jkt and the Cameraman Jkt?

    I thought for sure End would pick up the Converse. I guess it's not ready to go yet?

    Well SS13 is letdown for me. I'm not complaining since I can focus on other areas, but IMO it's not as good as SS12. Only big improvement for me is the Aircraft Jacket.

    Not necessarily. It all depends on how you style it. If you go jeans and the right boots I think it's pretty easy to work. Of course that depends on your personal style as well.

    I liked how Nitty Gritty styled their model with the Debenham:

    It's easily one of the best in the collection and very wearable depending on your style.

    Great photo - thanks for posting. Yes I agree the Debenham coat is the most wearable and looks great with the waxed top pockets

    Some nice styling shots from End for SS13

    In case you guys missed this:
    Still a lot of winter Cabourn in the sale. Sadly my budget is spent.

    I assume you'd want to size down with the K2 jackets, correct? So a size 50 would be a 48 in the K2?

    I just soaked and shrunk my mallory vest. Worked a treat. It shrank half a size as expected and the length shrank at least an inch which is what I wanted.
    It is a lot softer now and sits a bit better because of the lack off stiffness.
    I was a bit nervous to do it because I haven't found any one else that's done it.
    Very happy with the result.

    I previously read in this thread that Cabourn knits generally are smaller in size than, for example, the Cameraman.

    Im looking to score a roll neck but Im not sure whether to size up or not. Im a 52 in the Cameraman; any suggestion would be much appreciated.

    Loving the Cameramn. Im 195 cm tall and weighing in 85 kg. The fit is good but not great. The arm length and chest are good but Im not a big fan of the tapered fit around the gut. The color is beutiful; always been a sucker for the burnt orange. Sorry for the poor quality in the pic.

    Still plucking up the courage to soak my blue check AW11 Mallory jacket. This 46 Mallory from AW11 was just a bit larger than previous and subsequent years

    I think the renaming of the Spring summer version of the Cameraman to the Rangoon jacket was first done for the SS10 collection so the name was in line with the theme which was inspired by Nigel's fathers experiences being in the army in the Far East.

    The difficulty now is there are two SS Cameraman jackets in navy - one all navy ventile and the other with a slightly two tone blue/navy look. I am guessing either Cabourn or End are using the two different names to distinguish between them which other shops haven't needed to do.

    That Mallory is, IMO, the nicest one NC has ever made. Nice score!

    The Rangoon is shorter and only has two clips.

    On another note, I drove to NYC this weekend and found the only Cabourn piece at the barney's warehouse sale. The cape cameraman in navy. It was in the wrong section for its size, but I spotted it from a good distance away. For some reason they marked it down much more than any of the other clothing on sale. It was only $159.00 !!!!! It fits me better than the regular cameraman and it's a tad shorter, which I prefer. It's a slimmer fit. Super nice piece.

    It's tricky - I went for the Mallory in a 54 as the 52 would have been too small, but I'm wondering about shrinking it. It's how much it shrinks and where... I wouldn't want to lose much width in the shoulders although I could get away with an inch in the chest and a couple in the waist and skirt. Whilst I could lose an inch in length in the body I wouldn't want to lose more than half inch in the sleeves...

    Not very helpful fit pic:

    Love the photo - the brick backdrop is just fantastic. I think it's fit for a full Cabourn photoshoot!

    What a bargain !!! $159!!! I'm guessing the full price would have been around $1200?

    I think the cost price of the jacket to the shops was around £400 so it probably cost about £200 just to make!

    The Cape Cameraman is fastastic. What I like is the fact that I can put stuff in the lower pockets and still get my hands in the hand warmer pockets - cant do this on the classic Cameraman
