1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    To my knowledge the Harris Tweed (and the Linen) are all UK made.

    Received my Skyliner today, really pleased with it although it's a slightly snug fit. I'm 50 in all other Cabourn so in keeping with what's been on here previously think the Bauer definitely comes up small.
    I much prefer the Skyliner without the hood, do you think they're would be a market if I tried to sell the hood?

    The generally line of thinking on the Geddes has been that it's actually a bit oversized. Thing is IIRC the Skyliner is an inch snugger pit to pit making it 2 inches snugger in the chest. Anyway, about the hood, I think there would be a market, but it'd be extremely small. It would probably consist of Skyliner owners who would want a spare. Personally I'd consider it if I had the same Skyliner, but at the right price. That being said, I wouldn't in a million years sell it if I were you. If you don't like the hood, then just take it off. Keep it and put it in safe storage though. If you ever decide to sell the coat I think it would be more valuable with the hood. Others may prefer it and a Cabourn "collector" would likely want it. Probably not a big deal, but I would just hold onto it. Of course you could always float it on eBay and see what you get, but I definitely think you should keep it.

    At the end of the day I really hope it works out for you. It's tough with Cabourn because it's not cheap and if you can't make a return or you risk missing out on the right size if you order the wrong size then you're out of luck. Were I to order a Geddes coat I would be torn between the same sizes. It sounds like it does indeed run on the generous side, but IIRC you tried on a coat as a point of comparison (the K2 coat I think) has the same chest measurement in size 50 as the Geddes according to Marrkt's measurements. Of course you don't just base the fit of a coat on the chest measurement. Again, I just hope it works out for you either way and it'd be great if you posted how it fits when you get it. I still would like to see what size those of who have a Cameraman got in the Geddes in comparison to the Cameraman, IE did they size down or stay true to size.

    How did you go about contacting Marrkt? I've sent 2 emails using the contact-form on the site, and no reply at all. My opinion of their customer service is rather differnt to yours...

    One more thing, the Geddes has the clips and the K2 doesn't. That might help you out. It can give you almost about an extra inch in the Cameraman in the chest, and the Geddes has clips the whole way down.

    Not the sky blue then, eh? [​IMG] Where is it snug?

    The top of the page with the mail form has a contact number, I've had to call about 6 times over the returning and resending of the jackets and they've picked up all but once. The DHL arrangements have, truth be told, taken more effort from me than Marrkt but they have agreed to foot the cost for the return as they sent it out after I had asked them not to (and it had made it to Zurich). I get the feeling they have been a bit overwhelmed for the first few days of the sale.
    I'll report back as and when the new packet arrives.

    Got my Geddes today (damn, that was fast). Couple comments: (1) it's so freaking awesome, and (2) my sz 50 fits me about the same as my 52 cameraman (actually the cameraman is a tad more snug at the shoulders) so sizing down works perfectly for me since I had no interest in achieving an oversized look.

    Glad you like it and thanks for sharing the fit info. What color did you get?

    Ha ha ha, no sky blue in this house.
    It's a nice snug fit everywhere but is how I like it as I would only ever wear a t shirt, polo, or thin sweater under it.

    The one they call "tan. But to my eyes is more of a light olive with tan/light brown accents and patches

    Hi. Only just joined the forum so forgive me if people know this already, I'd imagine most do. [​IMG] The sale/Marrkt is run by Superdenim, so if you have any problems in the future, you could always use their live chat system on their page to ask a question. They are pretty good at responding and really helpful!

    Ah I couldn't make up my mind whether I should settle for 'moss' or 'tan' (yes, it should be called olive). I think I'll buy the tan as well but want to determine how it fits me first. This Marrkt initative is quite a cool thing.

    I'm actually looking for a few more NC items. Is that normal that NC releases it's A/W items in uh.. parts?
    There are some items that should have been released but I still haven't seen them anywhere despite sneak peeks of A/W collection.
    Here's one jacket I'm interested in:

    [​IMG]


    Also look at the quilted jacket next to it on the lower image- it looks like a modified Geddes jacket.. Any idea if we are to see these jackets in stores (or maybe these are just samples and may vary from what will be available for purchase)?

    And there's this quilted blazer from NC x EB collection, also haven't seen this around.
    [​IMG]

    If anyone has any info on these, I'd appreciate sharing it with me.. also since I never really followed the release dates etc, is that normal that some of these items pop up later on in the season? It's kind of strange, at least that's not what I'm used to with other brands... let me know guys.
