    I love those Merz B Schwanen henley shirts, but my drop shoulders and forward stomach told me to stay away with it.
    Enjoy your shirt, they are perfect base layer for cabourn's gears.

    Thanks mate, quick fit pic for those interested, I'm wearing a size 50, I'm 6'2 85kg (this is after a 24 hour flight home to Melbourne though, so not looking the best!):

    I went online this morning about four hours after the email was sent. It was out of stock then. I'm guessing they sold out fast or they pulled the inventory before the sale. I assume the former. Anyway, REALLY frustrating web shop and policy about orders. I would have placed an order with them as well. I'm to the point where I want to send them an email, but I'm sure it won't go anywhere. I just can't believe they'd launch a web shop like this.

    Surely the same should apply to international, just we pay for the postage extra?

    They really are amateur hour over there!
    I emailed several months ago when the web site went live and never received any reply (as others have mentioned)
    I then emailed again two weeks ago inquiring about the camo aircraft and was told that the sale would start in a few weeks. I checked again on Monday - BEFORE the sale even started - and the camo jacket was indicated as no longer available. I emailed again - and again no reply.

    I think they pulled it either for another retailer or perhaps to list it again in the fall (as it seems to also be a fall jacket to me)

    No big deal - even on sale the jacket is over $750 - more money left in my pocket.

    It just seems like it is getting harder and harder to buy Cabourn (I am in the States). I guess their loss.

    Someone who has contact with them should point them in the direction of these postings so that they can realize the level of discontent with their website. Definitely does not build good will for the brand.

    I can confirm that the code also works if you live on Scotland. No added shipping either. :hide:

    In other news, I finally tracked down a dark navy mallory from last winter. I kind of regretted not picking one up and thought I had missed out but I was looking on Stoy for something and seen one in my size on sale. Couldn't be happier with it. Really fast delivery from Denmark too.

    The code also worked for me and I'm in Hong Kong.

    I do know that a couple of Nigel's assistant production managers and designers do know of this Cabourn thread on Styleforum as I discussed it with them at the Converse launch a couple of months ago

    This is their first foray into a direct selling website and like them I would probably keep it simple to start with by offering a limited range to the UK market to keep payment and delivery processing simple.

    I don't know this but I would guess the management of the web orders might be outsourced as Nigel has only a very small team who are more concerned with design and managing the manufacturing and supply chain with lots of travelling to shows and suppliers

    Depending on success, I would think the website will expand in future collections

    I think the camo aircraft has genuinely sold out prior to the sale - there were only a very few made and it was a website exclusive and camo is definately 'of the moment'

    can't tell if the fit of my peak lapel jacket is accetable. i knew i would be big when i ordered it, but it were bigger then i expected. so i took i to the tailor that kinda destoyed the fit in the arms and made in quite short in back.. dont have any good fit pics but here is two pictures

    I think the fit with cabourn is quite tricky sometimes.
    i normally take on a 46 but in my unwaxed aircraft ss11 is size 48 and almost on the slimmer fit. I been thinking for a while if i should give it a wax treatment. Anyone have any experience in this?


    here are a pair of shoes you might find intresting

    Great photos - i cant think it can look any better.
    Sleeve length and overall length look great and it looks to fit accross the shoulders with the shoulder seam spot on

    Linen is more forgiving anyway as it creases and stays creased - sleeves ride up because of the elbow creases

    You don't want it too fitted

    The more you wear it , the more it fits

    Cabourn is tricky on more fitted jackets purely because they are made in such small numbers by small scale manufacturers who don't use mega million £ pattern software - much of the pattern making is still done by hand and eye by crafts people

    Couple this with the fact that in one season each type of jacket could come from a different manufacturer - there are two main manufacturers of the sports coat type jackets

    Thx, good point. maybe it would have been better if I had gone to the tailor after it got creased, if he would have taking it that condition.

    Hey guys. Haven't been around here as of late.. I wanted to give you heads up- I've listed my Coastal Command Shearling jacket in black/yellow, size 50/L. It's a sample bought directly from Drew :)
    I decided to part with it due to some financial problems. Off ebay it will be cheaper of course.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/100-auth-...075?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3a826f091b

    Pretty much a holy grail (or at least one of from NC), so I thought I'd share the link here.

    Out of curiosity, anyone else not able to add anything to their cart on the Cabourn site? I'm getting a little window popping up saying "item not added" with any item on the site.
