Nigel Cabourn & Eddie Bauer A/W 2012

Images of the second Cabourn & Bauer collection, this time with a hunting theme, up on Selectism. Can’t pick out any must have pieces from these shots, though the camo hunting jacket, which looks like it comes with the gloves, looks promising.

Though the price points are extremely high for this range, the quilted parkas are stuffed by hand taking over 5 hours to produce. I know a little about garment production in Asia, and the cost is largely down to efficiency and the number of minutes it takes to get each garment down the line. When it’s taking over 5 hours, and is produced in the UK or Canada with higher labour costs, the price points do stack up. Looking forward to more info on these in the coming months.
