Needs a centralized thread with stockists, pictures, etc. I'm def not an expert but I know some of you guys love what he does. I personally like the "Everest" series, especially the tweed jackets with reinforced shoulders.

I got one of the Indian khaki bags a while back, for (relatively) cheap. It's my favorite thing that I own - clothing included. If you get the chance, definitely grab one.

Not so much a fan of the clothing, at least from a (personal) aesthetic standpoint, but you can tell that a lot of love and care goes into each one. The jackets are amazing, though.

Of course the problem right now is that I need to heavily prune my closet, it just feels like I have 3-4 complete wardrobes. I wish I could get rid of things, I did get rid of a bunch of stuff this year. I hate the shoes and the shot isn't that nice but that colourway is great:

I like certain elements of workwear and have done so for a while, I just can't stand the shoes (always disgusting) and blind adherents who parot MC wisdom about "timeless style". It's still fashion.

Well the coat I posted is around $1250, less in the UK and continental Europe. Go to Junya or MMM and try to get a heavy coat for this price, they'll laugh at you. It really depends how you see it, from the point of view of a client buying designer items it is ok pricing. There is no real need for this tech stuff, it's just luxury and styling choices.

He has some very nice bags that are in the classic British field style made of twill, leather and Harris tweed fabrics.

I understand his brand is growing well in Japan. I had a very hard time locating it in London recently.

Cabourn seems to be on to something. I like the story behind his work. He has also been a long-time collector of vintage clothing especially associated with the military.
