    Need your opinion guys -
    So I got the Cabourn naval pants on the cheap. They are white, so I am dying them for sure (although I haven't decided on the color...any thoughts?). I tried wearing them, and they are pretty damn "relaxed". I know I could tailor them...but what do you think If I made them into shorts? Stupid idea or an alright idea?


    I've made a few of my old pants into shorts, so its a very viable option.

    But if they are super relaxed as pants, they'll be particularly baggy shorts.

    If you don't like the colour or the fit, wouldn't it be easier to sell them and buy some you do like?

    ^ there are 2 other bags on sale at superdenim, plus an additional 10% code (SALE10). Most of the brands available at TBS are slightly less expensive somewhere else online, especially in UK. e.g Nigel Cabourn Indigo Naval jacket: £575.00 at superdenim, 679€ at TBS Aircraft jacket: £335 at Coggles, 396€ at TBS

    If anyone knows of a store selling the Mallory jacket and vest (navy or gray) in size 52, please let me know. Looking for both pieces together. Not too fond of the new colors. cheers!

    Cabourn's Autumn/Winter collection looks great--"an in-depth look at the clothing worn by the British Military during World War 1. The key pieces are inspired by those styles worn by King George V and his son Edward VIII. During The Great War the troops fought under the most extreme and volatile conditions. Garments needed to be tough and durable in order to keep the battle weary troops warm and dry and offer some comfort in the harsh, black environment."

    I love the King George Coat:

    I was considering that blue cameraman last night, but kept zooming in and thinking I'd look like I was wearing a tablecloth :\

    Has anyone seen the beeswax aircraft jacket in person? Can you point me to a picture representing its real color best? It looks orange or pink depending on the photo.
