Our fashion guru Nigel Cabourn has a new website and this jacket is one of the hotest pieces on it.

Short Taped Smock is inspired by Cabourn's recent trip to Japan, where he discovered an inspirational vintage Naval smock. "The short taped smock, which is new for Spring 2013, is reminiscent of those worn by early 20th century explorers. Like those pieces it is made in 100% cotton but with the added luxury and performance of Ventile®, and the hand knotted waxed cord uses traditional leather pigs nose cord locks to secure the hem and hood," says Cabourn.
