Nigel Cabourn fall winter 2013: back we go

Nigel Cabourn has been delving around in the annals of sartorial history once more for his autumn / winter 2013 collection, but this time he's come back to ground level.

The cuts are smarter by and large, complemented by the addition of Lanificio Cerruti fabrics including a 750g cashmere, available in orange and olive green. The staples however, including thick down parkas and Cameraman Jackets, remain.
