New in this month are two spring jackets from Nigel Cabourn and Heritage Research.
One of my first pieces of SS11 to arrive and Mr Cabourn has not disappointed. As the name suggests,the Aircraft Jacket draws influence from aviation design, made to withstand the elements while providing maximum comfort.
This Button Down Placket version is a novel reworking of this brilliant jacket. Made from Cotton Cloth coated in refined Oil, a technique developed by British fisherman, this is a material which Nigel has worked with with since 1979 due to it’s quality and durability.
- 100% Natural Oil Coated Cotton Construction
- High Stance Collar with Adjustable Fixed Hood
- RiRi Zip With Covered Button Down Placket
- Under-Arm Ventilation
- Two Large Zip-Closure Front Pockets
- Made in England
Second, is the Burnt Orange Longline Parka from Heritage Research. A new version of the staple Longline Parka made from Burnt Orange British Millerain wax cotton. The jacket features an adjusted cut and fit, two large Military bellows pockets, a signature military grade brass RiRi zipper, unlined with all seams bound in English cotton Cambric, button up storm flap, high fastening neck, adjustable cuffs, fitted peaked hood and leather adjusters on hood and hem. Internally, the jacket has brown button in/out braces to aid carrying the jacket when not wearing it. The Longline Parka has been developed with elements taken from both 60 40 mountain parkas and a classic Maine fishermans jacket.
The jacket does not disappoint as previous HR Longlines have varying cuts, this one is spot on. The Burnt Orange colourway is an exclusive to Present, London but is also available in Navy, Yellow, Red, Blue, Denim, and a special in a biege Ventile.
