Nigel Cabourn started out in the fashion world in the early 1970’s and and through various guises has become a very highly regarded “Cult Clothing Designer” creating many iconic and desirable to own outerwear pieces. As a massive vintage clothing collector much of his collection is inspired by Military, Outdoor and workwear iconic pieces from history, sourced from his travels. Along with the aforementioned his clothing is also distinguished by the high quality of fabric and trims that he uses.
US Army Cotton Ripstop Peak Lapel Blazer
Taking inspiration from the workwear blazers worn by the Royal Navy engine crews during WW2, the Peak Blazer features a three–button centre front fastening and three patch pockets. For extra support to the lower pockets, reinforcements have been added, whilst a full internal cotton lining offers extra warmth for autumn and winter.
It has been made from 100% cotton ripstop which was first conceived during WW2 by the US Air Force. As the ripstop fabric was designed to be less susceptible to rips and tears, it proved to be an equally strong yet lightweight replacement for the expensive, delicate silk used for parachute manufacturing at the time.
