Archive Inspired Field Fashion from Nigel Cabourn

    Intellectually-considered, meticulously researched menswear has long been Nigel Cabourn's sartorial calling card. For autumn 10 the designer rubberstamps his authority in the field with a sumptuous, texture-heavy collection which reinvents archive-inspired pieces using only British sourced fabrics and homegrown manufacturing.
    The brand's trophy-piece Arctic parka (inspired by the coats championed by Sir Edmund Hilary on the slopes of Everest) makes a return in orange or royal blue with exposed waist-cinching belts buth the real highlights revolve around Harris Tweed. Blue Harris Tweed 4sb jackets with a single button hidden behind the lapel feature contrast shoulder and elbow patches in oiled cotton; matchign trousers are wide fitting with heavily rolled cuffs. Hooded fishing jackets are presented with tweed bottom halfs and cotton top halfs and contrast fastenings. Rigid cotton canvas tailoring, a washed melton duffle-coat, Edwardian-inspired cropped jackets with peaked lapels and cutaway corners and a heavily ribbed shawl collared cardie are other highlights in what remains one of Pitti's most sumptuous collections on the Pitti block.
    Wholesale prices range from £80 to £1,875. For more information call 0191 284 7093.Source URL:
