    That's really nice, made in the UK too. Not convinced by the price though, £277. I bought a black medical shirt last year which looks very similar and that was £180, so a third more ?

    Can anyone tell me how to clean/care the Nigel Cabourn Rangoon jacket?

    "Featuring a bottom half made of premium cotton and an upper half, based on WWII military smocks, constructed of naturally beeswax coated cotton"

    I have already washed the jacket with a sponge and cold water (as says on the jacket label). But what can I used to the beewax cotton? Can I use Barbour Thornproof dressing?

    If you just want the beeswax cotton re-waxed, you could send it to Otters re-waxing service (just google them). I recently did this with a SS14 Canadian Jacket, which is beeswax cotton, and they did a really good job using their own special product. This is a new generation version of beeswax which performs just as well but doesn't contain certain additives. If you wanted to do it yourself I'm sure they can sell you the wax - probably a lot better than using Barbour. I don't think Barbour wax is designed to go on beeswax products. The rewaxing cost £44 including recorded postage back to me.

    Has anyone handled the 2015 S/S "Heavyweight" linen Mallory Jacket ?? If so thoughts, some of the pictures make it look robust where others it appears a lighter weight. I believe there is only one in the "Authentic" collection.

    Thanks.

    FYI there are various Arctic parkas on the Cabourn site ?

    Have a pair of the Cabourn/Converse 1st string, bought TTS= to big by a half to full size.
    Had a pair of the Nigel Cabourn x Converse First String Plimsole they ran TTS

    Hope that helps

    That really doesn't help at all lol
    best bet would be to either call or email and ask or have them measure the sole

    If you want the same finish then use Fjallraven Greenland Wax.

    Has anybody got experience with washing this grey peak lapel jacket to achieve the rugged look but also to shrink it?
    I'm especially interested in shrinkage in overall and sleeve length compared to shoulder and chest measurements.

    Thing shrinks everywhere.... becareful of the lapels. I have the Mallory in same color way and washed it, everywhere fit fine, but the collar and lapels look a tiny bit short... if I had to do it again i wouldn't wash that part of the jacket.

    How are you planning on washing it? By hand? Be interested to know how the lining fares in the 'shrink' compared with the outer fabric. Any signs of bunching etc.

    A few people have shared their experience.
    But I can't remember anyone mentioning the lining. It would probably bunch a bit, but I can't imagine too much.
    Apparently a soak will result in a reduction of about half a size.
    Here's some info: http://www.greyfoxblog.com/2012/05/dry-cleaning-tweed-jackets-try-hand.html

    Soak it in warm water I say first...then wring it out. It will take a couple of days to dry - laying it flat.

    How do you like the jacket, in rugged or non-rugged state?
    The Mallory with the ventile patches looks more unformal perhaps. Though this is also nicely in between an outdoor and more formal jacket.

    A 52 would fit me very well, but is not available. I might be able to wear a shrunk 54, but not sure if it will work out.
    I tried on the long 50 and 52 but they're too long and the 50 is too small, too.

    For anyone interested, this jacket is on sale at manufactum.

    I don't understand the sizing on the Maufactum site?

    Hi ike_hiking_boots

    I'don't know if this helps: (Continental) European sizing = British sizing + 10
