    Anybody chime in on this seasons cricket oxford jacket? I'm guessing the fabric is pretty lightweight and soft? Size wise I'm a 46 camerman and 48 mallory (both FW). Wondering what size I would be.

    Thanks

    Nice review Shame it's too big on you and you have to sell. Looking at your eBay photos I think a 48 or even a 46 would have looked great

    If you take a 48 Mallory, I would go with a 48 Cricket Oxford as they are quite fitted with a shorter sillouette.

    Can't comment on size compared with other cabourn jackets, but I found mine fine in my regular size (50). There are fit pics a few pages back. The fabric is light, though slightly heavier than my nicer oxford shirts (Beams) - just enough stiffness to be reassuring, and should soften with wear. I got the baby blue, but the light olive colour is great too!

    Hi Nixda,
    I received the denim jacket too, but it is the one from this season (SS13) and the collar seems different from the one in hte picture above. It is called the 'chest pocket work jacket' : https://www.cabourn.com/collections...-work-jacket&product=511e5a68e55d88b47e00001c
    The fit is kinda weird though. The shoulders are very dropped, it makes it look like i picked the wrong size. I took size 50. I am 5'11, 75kg, chest about 102cm
    I am tempted to return it and get the 48.
    Also, i was interested in the vest, would you mind posting a few pics of your fit with jacket+vest ?
    Did you have any trouble with the size ?
    Thx

    I got the 50 in both and fit is perfect in my opinion. I'll post some pics in the next day or two if that's cool.

    Newly acquired NC x Brady handy fishing bag from Rakuten.

    The condition of the bag is too good to be true for that price

    As you noted, the one that you have is a completely different jacket. It's defnitely not as tailored as the jacket that Nixda has. In fact you could go up a size in Nixda's jacket and stil be an inch more tailored in the chest than the one you have.

    I actually like the jacket you have. I like them both and prefer Nixda's, but I still like the one you have. I'm tempted to get one myself, but I've bought enough Cabourn, again, this Summer.

    Hi guys,


    Does anybody know who makes the Mallory jacket for Nigel Cabourn. I believe there was a company in scotland that was mentioned. I can't seem to remember the name.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    The tweed Mallory is made by a company called Panache in London, as far as I know. The Cameraman has been made by Mackintosh in Scotland, at least as long as they were made using Mackintosh fabric. Not sure if the change to Ventile has changed anything.

    Mos of the Cabourn stuff is produced in a single factory in the Midlands, staffed by young Eastern European workers.
