Nigel Cabourn Spring/Summer 2013 collection

February 18, 2013

The new Spring/Summer 2013 collection from Nigel Cabourn is starting to find its way into shops now, and with it comes some great re-working of classic pieces like the Cameraman jacket, as well as a range of new styles.









The predominant inspiration for the collection comes from classic British sportswear, with Cricket being the main influence. The Cricket Oxford Blazer is a simple sky blue cotton jacket that’s made in England and certainly wouldn’t look out of place at Lords in the 1920’s, and neither would the Compton jacket in it’s Golden Fox cloth, resplendent in its big bold stripes.

For this season the Cameraman finds itself being given a more technical feel whilst still maintaining its classic look, and is constructed entirely from Cotton Ventile with fully taped seams throughout. The Aircraft jacket also gets the same treatment and is available in a variety of colours (but it’s all about the Antarctic orange and Survival yellow versions for me).

If you were a fan of the oilcoth version from last season then you’ll be happy to know that this version is still included too. The British Army shirt also comes in a variety of colours, and is made from end-on-end cotton with a hidden button-down collar, single chest pocket and reinforced, pointed placket with curved hem. The brand also continue their collaboration with Merz B Schwanen and the product this season are the bold striped Grandad jerseys, of which the vintage red is particularly good.

All of the above is now available from End Newcastle, for more information on the brand itself, go to the website here: Nigel Cabourn.

      Yep. There’s some lovely stuff for this season though and the Ventile Aircraft is a cracker of a jacket.

    ^ He’s not wrong.

    Good to see a bit more of a technical edge, but as ever the prices are so prohibitive I find myself moving on from it all very quickly, actually I’ve found myself disregarding much of it without even looking at the cost as I know it’ll be way out of what I’d be willing to pay. It’s a shame as there’s some great pieces, but I’ll see what it’s like in the sale.

    Hit and miss at best. As everyone else has said, the Aircraft is excellent & its even better in the flesh, best bit by miles.
