    I assume it's kind of a joke. You can't seriously go around with the tags at your neck like that.

    Why anyone would wear it reversed like that is unlikely, but it's Cabourn, so you have to expect there is some historical basis.

    That sweater gets it's name because it was based on the one worn by Tom Bourdillon who was part of the Everest expedition and in his photo he was wearing it inside out and reversed

    Yeah I have looked at them a couple times and the shawl collar looks great.

    Get the sub knit. It's the best NC nautical sweater hands down

    For me the same size as my cameraman fit. I also wear the Mallory one size larger than the cameraman.

    Ordered the US Clip jacket with blanket lining from ushowu and they sent me the newer version by accident. I was disappointed at first, but they gave me a great discount on the Orange Hooded Sweat so had to jump on it.

    I'm actually now thinking that the new version of the US Clip jacket is a tad nicer since the older one had polyester and acrylic in it.

    Cabourn pieces on sale at Oi Polloi: http://www.oipolloi.com/shop/brand/nigel-cabourn

    The aircraft jackets this season are great. I'd like to get one of those ridiculous multi color shirts but I have a feeling that they'll be around until end of season sales.

    With the sale and minus VAT, it'll be about the price of an EG 19th Century BD Shirt. Great shirts though. Hopefully my size will make it further down the season.

    Japanese stores are the only ones that carry them in 46 I think (the Japanese made pieces are also more affordable when purchased directly from Japan too).
