    Yeah, It's also the reason why I have not bought it yet. Endclothing have 20% off (72 hours code).

    But I dont know if the smallest size/48 would be a little too big for me. I'm already got some Nigel Jackets in size 48, but I heard the Scott’s expedition are big in sizes (more than the normally NC)?

    Im approx. 172 cm and 77 kg. and I also going to loose som weight at the moment ,so it may not be too big/loose from the start.

    Not that anyone cares, but limited edition, military green version of Geddes is the Moss green version that was available at Marrkt. Just got that confirmed.

    The NC Utility Everest parkas pop up on Ebay fairly often. Not sure how it's misleading if he says "Please don't confuse this Parker with the Nigel Cabourn Orange Parker costing around £2,000."

    It's just not sitting in the end of the buttonhole. A little tug, and it will line up with the others.

    But you're right. There are three colours. Besides the navy and the beige there's also olive.

    And there seems to be a purple, too.

    I don't think I agree with you here. I think it's pretty dodgy to be using pictures of a completely different product to what you are selling. From what I remember he doesn't even mention that the first few pictures are a different product only that they are taken from the internet. I agree that he's trying to cover his back with the above statement but it's not the whole truth about what he's presenting (i.e. pictures from a different product). We all know that most people are idiots and will only look at the first few pictures and skim the text when looking at things on the internet (which of course is their problem).

    Yes, he didn't need to include the first three photos, but there are about five other photos, plus the description, that indicate that it is Nigel Cabourn Utility, the cheap line made for Debenhams. One would have to be a complete moron to get confused.

    indigoeagle- Well, actually I thought that there wer four Geddes jackets- olive/mustard, moss green, navy and military green. The reason for the confusion is that moss green Geddes looks totally different each time it's photograpphed :)

    Marrkt have dropped their prices. £400 for tan Gaddes in 50 or 52 and shirts and trousers in odd sizes down to about 20% of retail.

    Just thought I'd post a more historical/sartorial topic while the thread is quiet...

    As a huge fan of Cabourns Mallory jackets, and the aura surrounding them, I'm watching "The Wildest Dream", the film about George Mallorys 1924 ascent of Everest with great interest, :

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1509276/

    Very nicely made in 2010, with lots of historical images and film clips. In one of these clips, filmed at what I take to be a base camp on the way up Everest, we get a pretty good look at Mallorys jacket, and as far as I can tell it doesn't have the very characteristic pockets that Cabourns recreation has.

    Am I right in feeling a little disheartened, or should I just be happy Cabourn did make the pockets different, and hence made the jacket different to 99% of other tweed jackets around? :)

    I don't think the Mallory or the Tenzing is a recreation jacket. They're both 'inspired by." I think the overall design is close as is the pockets. The biggest difference is the addition of the ventile. I think Mallory was dead before it was invented.

    Valid points, and your photo does show that Mallorys jacket clearly has pockets on the outside, which wasn't easy to see on the films. Good find!

    Another fascinating fact to be gleaned from the photo: Whilst in general it appears to be considered sartoritally sound for gentlemen to wear the bottom button undone on their jackets, Mallory actually had all his buttons done. Anyone using their Mallory jacket in the cold will welcome this information and no longer feel compelled to walk around with a cold tummy tums as half the jacket is allowed to flap around. Doing up all the buttons has a significant effect on how warm the jacket is.

    Ventile was developed during WW2, so a significant number of years after Mallory died in 1924, yes.

    I think Mallory is wearing a jacket that looks closer to a NC Tenzing then a NC Mallory. That looks more like a full four button jacket and hence works better when it's all buttoned up. I'm a fan of the Tenzing (which is why I own one) and either way I think it's a good addition to have the ventile. If it had existed back in the 20's I'm sure they would have been running around with it instead of the gabardine.

    The following is a NC X Rugged Museum version.
