Nice Cameraman, irbe. Taped seams aren't necessary- it will still keep you plenty dry. I wore mine with a wool sweater yesterday, and it was great. As I was walking across campus in the middle of a snow flurry, I felt like I was well dressed for the weather. The Harris Tweed body did a nice job of keeping me warm. Thinking back to the photo that Fok posted, as well as the idea that that was the ideal fit, I was actually glad that my Cabourn outerwear does not fit like that. Wearing both a wool knit and a Cameraman that fit fairly close to my body surely kept me warmer than wearing them one size larger for that slouchy fit. So, I fail to see a practical reason to wear Cabourn slouchy. Personal preference (or to sell stuff at a trade show) is certainly fine. But, I think a fit like that holds less weight in my mind than any other. Nigel looks good in what he does, but I wouldn't even attempt this myself.
