    I'm thinking about taking advantage of the sale prices on a Cameraman , but was hoping to get some more info.
    specifically, are measurements for the jackets posted anywhere online?
    also, can anyone who's worn the harris tweed/macintosh version of the coat speak to how warm it is?
    thanks very much,

    The Mac top is unlined, but the HT body is warm. I have worn it with a thick wool sweater on cold snowy days, And it's been great. Go with your normal jacket size. For instance, I have a 39-40" chest typically wear a 40R, and the 50 is great.

    Just picked up this NC piece in a 46, hopefully it'll fit. Not sure which way is the right way to wear it (hasn't arrived yet):

    If I ended up sizing wrong, I'l pass on the savings I got to you guys, seeing as it's non-returnable

    Any idea when superdenim might have the next Cabourn special sale (based on how often they have done it up till now)? If they will do it again at all.. I feel like an idiot for not getting the storm parka for an insane price last time.

    Super Denim is On Sale Now! I ended up purchasing the Cameraman at 50 as well. I got to try on a 48 and the sleeves were way too short and I couldn't fit anything under the jacket.

    Sales is everywhere right now! SO TEMPTING to pick up a King George Jacket. Does anyone have a King George and can post up some pictures to see how it looks in person?

    @Zissou Ya I guess in Hong Kong the Main Line is better priced cause Hong Kong is closer to Japan as I noticed the Authentic Line made in UK were like double the price!!! Ridiculous!

    So within a month on this forum, I've purchased 1 Cameraman (AL), 1 Mallory (ML) and 1 Unidentified Jacket (ML) haha and now considering a King George! lol I need to stop...

    Here's the Mallory I picked up from a recent sale. I've wanted one of these for quite some time. Eventually, I'll pick up a Cameraman man but I don't think I need any more outerwear right now. Btw, this thread needs more pics of people actually wearing these amazing pieces.

    Are the inspirations for NC pieces regularly made public? Curious about the "swedish parka", since I havent seen any swedish surplus looking anything like that (except for the pocket shape I think).
