Nigel Cabourn – Lybro RAF jacket

October 16, 2015

You can never have too many jackets. It’s a simple fact of life. And as such, one should always be on the lookout for new outerwear, because a good coat is a necessity. My short jacket desire was sated recently with a shaggy blue number from Our Legacy, but that hasn’t stopped me thinking about this, the RAF jacket from Nigel Cabourn.

Based on an original 1950s design, the jacket is part of Cabourn’s Lybro range, with new life having being breathed into this UK heritage brand, culminating in a range of vintage inspired work wear clothes, which are manufactured using the best British and Japanese fabrics and trims.

The jacket is constructed from cotton poplin, with wool ribbed collar and cuffs. The exterior also features a pair of hand warmer pockets and adjustable herringbone tape at the waist. It’s fastened with a Japanese WWII zip with leather pull and inside you’ll find a light quilted lining.

Available from End now, go here to purchase, or for more information about the brand, go to the website here: Nigel Cabourn.
