    Saw it yesterday and would have totally bought it if my size - I've been lusting after this parka for a couple of years

    Yeah that is kinda crappy. You think of the money you could have saved on that purchase to use for your next. I think cabourn SS stuff doesn't move as quick as their FW line. Either way if you are happy with the garment that is all that matters at the end of the day.

    It's not that big of a deal, really. If anything, it will prevent me from buying from that shop again, especially after other problems that I have had with orders. I'm at the point where I really don't buy much except from grail items (of which I have none at this point, except for perhaps a Himel Bros Heron) or something that really catches my eye (again, not much at this point), so paying a little extra for one item doesn't cause much pain. Frankly, I was surprised by how poorly the linen Mallorys seemed to sell this season. Several are still sitting around at half off.

    Yeah, I bought the Merz short sleeve Granddad Jersey from them. A bit disappointed in how large it is (body and length) even though I bought the same size as all my other Cabourn pieces. Even after washing it. It's a nice piece, but definitely not worth full price.

    Sorry if I gave a negative impression. As I stated, it's a nice piece. I think the Merz prices themselves are much more palatable than the NC x Merz. ;)

    Hi

    Did not read it as negative just as it goes there Co-Lab is priced a little up, just the way some co-labs go, but I just really like there products, in fact I have a fair few of them, wear them as much as I do our own stuff. Peter (the designer/owner/maker) has the best job in the world, a great respect for the garments and the machines that make them, a really nice person and so unaware of the wonderfulness of his garments. no ego there, all product and love for the processes.

    There site is great too

    http://www.merz-schwanen.com/en/history/


    all about the garments and the history of it.

    thank you

    Neil

    Thanks Neil.

    Yeah, I've checked out the site. Love those circular weaving machines. I was born and raised in Germany, so I have a bias toward German products as well. :)

    Just received my cameraman from yoox, the semi-lined thing just meant that the tweed part was lined not, the mackintosh part. The fit is fine but I discovered an anti-theft tag in one of the air holes near the pit. Waiting to hear back from yoox about how to get that fixed.

    I did buy a yellow cameraman and green drill jeans. Cameraman is been put away for a rainy day. I still have the beeswax from a couple of seasons ago. To be honest it did not wear the best. Beeswax thinned fairly badly and cotton is impossible to keep clean. Does any one have that version and if so any tips for cleaning.

    Any sizing tips on the aircraft jacket? I'm usually a 42r.

    Thanks
