    Thanks a lot Eric.I was beginning to think thatto be the case. I have been searching for two years.I actually tried it on as well and it was just amazing. Hope someone in Switzerland or Japanese might have seen this in one of those tiny shops that do not have a full on online presence.the search continues.

    Thanks again @Eric Gill Sans.

    Loving these shots of the womens collection on Instagram, especially the olive jacket and trousers. Anyone know if there is anything similar in the mens collection?

    Yes they are great aren't they
    Corniche are the only ones to have the SS14 women's wear on line so far but the Cabourn site will have some on soon
    The olive jacket is very similar to the Dark Army Hospital jacket from the SS13 mens collection -( corniche might have one left )
    Nothing similar in the mens SS14 unfortunately

    It's probably just the styling but the womenswear just seems so much more on point at the moment. If they did the business jacket and formal pant in that olive, I'd be all over it. Still might go for the navy or one of the linen options though as I want a really nice summer suit and I like how relaxed these items are.

    The women's wear this season looks really good. The summer menswear is a bit, dare I say dull. I'm still tempted by last seasons Compton jacket though.

    I'm hoping it's a different story in person but some of the product shots just make the menswear look a bit lifeless. It's a shame that nowhere in London really carries it anymore apart from Trunk who only had a little selection the last time I was in. Hopefully, I'll be able to get in to Edinburgh when I go home for Easter as Corniche always have a fairly big selection.

    I have the Cold Weather parka in a 54 and had seen somewhere that the Everest Parka fits large

    So my question is; would I get away with a size 52 in the Everest Parka, or, stick to a size 54?

    Over to you guys!

    Can anyone who owns the Compton and Mallory give me a comparison on fit? I'm okay in a 52 in the Cameraman but need a 54 in the Mallory. Thanks.

    Thank you for the info on the fit of the Everest Parka

    Another curiosity I have for you guys is; where could one find replacement buttons for the Workwear Jean, or any replacement buttons for that matter?

    I thank you.

    This years cameraman is a little too "crazy" for me, but still a great price.

    The Compton in Maroon/Gold arrived yesterday - excellent service from Corniche.

    Lovely jacket, I wouldn't want it any tighter in the shoulders or longer in the body though - if you're tall and slim it would probably be perfect.

    Nice one. I've looked at that jacket so many times, it's really lovely but don't think I could pull it off. You'll definitely do it justice. Looking forward to seeing your fit.

    Hi all Cabourn fans

    Just want to bore you and warn you from my experiences with probably the worst consumer experience of my life from the online retailer Coggles now owned and run by The Hut Group in the UK.

    My advice is to avoid at all cost - if you see a Nigel Cabourn piece advertised by Coggles in your size which you like, I would do everything to try to procure it from one of the many other fantastic Nigel Cabourn stockists.

    I have probably spent around £15K on Nigel Cabourn clothing from just about every Cabourn retailer over the last 4 years, past and present. Outstanding service from LN-CC, Oki Ni, Oi Polloi, Tres Bien all who sadly don't stock Cabourn anymore and outstanding service from current retailers - UshowU, End Clothing, Trunk, Superdenim, Cultizm and Corniche. All are brilliant and passionate about Cabourn, offer great customer service and advice and I have had absolutely no problem returning and getting refunds for the few items that didn't fit or i didn't think suited me.

    I am a Managing Director and business owner of a small to medium sized business and know how processes and customer service works and Coggles is in my view a complete disaster on every level and should not be anywhere near selling premium clothing and especially Nigel Cabourn clothing.

    I placed two orders for Cabourn pieces on line within 10 minutes of each other on an evening a few weeks ago in their sale for what was i was hoping to be a matching suit of the formal trousers and business jacket both in my size.

    4 days later, 4 packages arrived through 3 separate parcel delivery firms all on the same day. The reason there were 4 packages was that each order came with a free Esquire magazine sent separately. The packages came from Yodel, DPD and Royal Mail on on the same day to my business address.

    OK at least they arrived.

    Despite my phone call to customer services a week early inquiring what the tag size of the XS business jacket was - i was told and referred to their sizing chart that it was a 46, --a 48 arrived.

    too big

    I contacted customer services to ask if they had the 46 and if this had been sent out in error as they were showing a Small in stock. They didn't know.

    The Small then sold to another member on this forum Ferry who got the 50!!!

    They also still had the Medium advertised and in stock on their website so i politely enquired if they could check what the tag size of that one left was just in case

    No they couldn't as it was in their warehouse and its a complicated system and anyway it is showing that that last jacket was not in stock at all and isn't there and will be taken off the system and offline

    (It was still on-line ready to buy for 5 days after this conversation when it disappeared)!

    so I asked for a returns number so I could send both orders back for a refund which i got and i carefully packed both orders including the free magazines exactly as they arrived neatly in their respective boxes with the returns notes duly filled in.

    They arranged collection by their courier for the next day, nobody turned up so i rang to rearrange for the Friday.

    Then unannounced a day late Yodel came to collect both orders, my staff asked for proof of collection which really threw them, calls to bosses as they didn't know what to do but eventually the courier left a Yodel barcoded ticket with his name and date and that 2 packets had been collected.


    a week went by and i eventually got a refund for the jacket through paypal but nothing for the other order, the trousers.

    i contacted Customer services several times to ask what was happening and when

    They told me twice that this order hadn't been redelivered into the warehouse yet - strange as it was with the jacket and collected at the same time.

    I contacted Yodel and found out that the barcoded ticket i was left was meaningless and they had no record of any packets being collected or delivered !!!

    After a few more days and calls i was sent an email that i couldn't reply to, saying that they were refusing a refund and were sending the trousers back to me because they had been worn and they were without the original tags and barcode.

    !!!!??????xxxx !!!!!

    Arhhhhhhh

    They arrived back to me a few days later in perfect condition exactly as i sent them with the label and barcode still attached through the rear button loop face up in the packaging, clearly visible.

    i hadn't even tried the trousers on and were neatly folded and they had unfinished hems so it was ludicrous to suggest that they had been worn

    also I got the returns number and arranged for them to be collected on the very first day they first arrived.

    I have now sent a letter and sent an email and spoken to their customer services and sent photos to which i have not had the courtesy of a reply.

    Still waiting

    Please avoid Coggles and buy from the other establishments - you have been warned
