    Cheers. Sizing up usually doesn't work so I'll probably pass on that one.


    I would also add that last season's version looks like it would fit into this season's Aircraft Jacket as well. Snaps appear to be in the same spot.

    Yes only Covent Garden shop now in London

    Selfridges then Liberty & LN-CC dropped Cabourn a few seasons ago

    That left Present & Trunk who both dropped Cabourn when it was clear Nigel was opening his own store

    In the UK, I can certainly recommend Superdenim, Corniche and End for customer service on line or by phone

    Corniche and End have physical shops as well but obviously in Edinbourgh & Newcastle respectively

    Quote:It is worth noting that unless you make a prior engagement, End don't keep much, if any, Cabourn in the shop. And their warehouse is now not nearby, so it's not a case of fetching stuff easily. This goes for all their high-end brands. The two small shows they have are really quite disappointing.

    I just got the my busines jacket in grey flannel (Fox Flannel) from last year off the bay. Jacket feels great. Don't have any sports jacket so this will be the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Also got a reversible fllanel (also from the bay). First thought, the shirt was a little thin, but found out recently they make light weight ones. The whole reversible thing was a novelty for me but i actually found myself wearing both sides. Besides the thinness of the flannel, it is really nicely made.

    actually mine was the non-speckled one :(, just grey flannel. Still like it though. Yes they are a little trimmed. I'm a 48 in Mallory and 46 in Cameraman (both FW) and 48 is a little trim. Little tight aroudn the back, but nothing too extreme. Hoping with some wear, the wool will relax a bit

    But I wouldn't size up since im only wearing a shirt underneath it. However you can't wear a knit for sure.

    In case anyone is interested in the Filson collab, stylecreep offers a 20% discount code (FREEZING20)... Pretty good deal IMO.

    Hey guys - I've Googled around a bit but can't seem to find this year's Cameraman in a 46. Am I pretty much out of luck at this point? I'm looking for a nice outdoor coat and would love to try one of these (never put one on), but I'm pretty positive I need a 46 (5'9", 158lbs, 39" chest, 16.25" shoulder) and they aren't popping up anywhere that I can find. Thanks in advance!

    Don't get me started about trying to find Nigel Cabourn clothing in sizes 46 and 44

    I've spent days of my life over the last 4 years hunting down pieces in the Extra small sizes in Europe - I've even bought from Nigels distributor in Japan to try to get a one and only small size that was made

    Superdenim, End and Nigels London or online store are now the only stockists who have a very few pieces in a 46

    It is limited to a few pieces as us slim people are at the mercy of what shops think they can sell and what goes over to Japan

    Shops don't want to be left with the very high priced items having to go into sales so I think we will find that 46's will become even more difficult to find

    My advice - go to Japan with an empty suitcase !!

    Having said all that I've just noticed you have a 39inch chest - a 46 will be way too tight accross the chest - a 46 cameraman has a 38 inch chest

    I would go for a 48 and have the sleeves altered or rolled up

    46s are out there, but not in your traditional spots as has been mentioned. I would try eBay as well as Rakuten. You can also try some of the Japanese stockists. Not sure about this season's Cameraman, but you'll find some 46s.

    EDIT: End has it on the moss colorway.

    I have a 39" chest and take a 50 in the Cameraman. The fit is perfect with a medium weight knit underneath.

    I don't know how some of you guys size down from Mallory to Cameraman. I take 50 in both and have to have my Mallorys slimmed down a little.

    I don't know why a 46 is in short supply. To me it's a true small and should be widely available and sell just as much as all the other sizes.
    I only take a 46 in all Cabourn stuff and usually don't have much problem getting anything I want. You do have to buy before the sales though or get in with an early discount code.
    Or like Eric says, get to Japan. I was there in June and it was like a Mecca pilgrimage. Had to buy extra bags to get my stuff home :)

    Wow, thanks for all of the great responses! So it sounds like I need the 48..? Again, I'm 5'9" almost 160 lbs, 39" chest and 16.35" shoulder (athletic frame). I definitely don't want it too snug in the chest, but I could always do something with the sleeves if the chest fit properly. I like a more trim (not too snug) fit though.
