What I want – Nigel Cabourn Fisherman 3/4 coat

October 25, 2010

Well I’m still looking at coats, I know I’ve recently bought two and I’m not in the market for any more (for at least 5 years) but there’s no harm in looking as it’s always worth knowing what’s about isn’t it?

One of them has been this Fisherman’s 3/4 jacket from Nigel Cabourn, which caught my eye as I looked through the broader collection a couple of months back. I think it would be fair to say that Cabourn’s Autumn/Winter 2010 season has been incredibly strong and regardless of the cost of these items (and let’s not pretend that they’re not really expensive), the one thing you can not deny is that they always look and feel amazing.

As with the Camerman jacket this is also made from a mix of Mackintosh and Harris Tweed but it’s done in a very different way. The bulk of the coat is in Harris with the shoulders, sleeves and hood being the Mackintosh items – possibly due to them being the bits that get the most water on them when it’s raining? Whatever the reason it certainly makes for an interesting looking jacket and I personally like the mix of materials.

As you’d expect it’s a rugged looking thing and certainly one that seems as if it’d take some serious punishment (which is what I want out of a coat like this). I love the mix of the outer large checks and the inner Tartan lining, not just in terms of the way the colours work together but the different textures too. Add in all of the other details and the high quality components and you’ve got a jacket that’ll look after you in the cold months for years to come.
