Nigel Cabourn launches his new women’s line designed by Agnes Kemeny:
I want to go back to Falmouth…
I recently moved into a tiny room, I have to live like a Japanese business man in a living capsule or something. I made this clothes hanger so I can avoid the floor-drobe issues of a small room, but without making holes in the wall. It all slots together really simply, held in place by it’s own weight.

"The collection is inspired by the hunting and fishing estates held by the British aristocracy from 1901 to 1952. The fabrics used have been part of British history for more than a hundred years, but for the first time this year, make their entrance into the collection the precious fabrics of Lanificio Cerruti. In particular, the 750 gr. 100 per cent cashmere that is available in vintage colours like orange and army green, is used to reinterpret a true leader of the oldest English tradition, the coat of Lord Montgomery.”

Interview with Filson:
Cool collared Cary…
I’ve garment dyed the walking jacket. I particularly like that the camo of the pockets still shows through and how the contrast between the garment fabric and the orange storm flap is heightened. The nylon thread didn’t pick up the dye adding a new feature - good accidental design! Next is to wax the outer shell…

Looking forward to going back to Falmouth…
Going to make my own wax coating to finish the walking jacket using this recipe from Red Crow Quality Goods:
-2 Pots: 1 that fits loosely inside the other to do a little double boiler action. (You don’t want to melt wax directly over an open flame it could end very badly with flames and such) Or if doing a small batch could use an old soup can inside a pot.
-Water: to boil in mentioned pot.
-Stove Top: how else you going to boil the water?
-Wax: paraffin and Bee’s
-Coconut Oil (optional): Smells nice and for my projects fits in with the whole story thing mentioned above. Also it helps keep the wax soft and pliable for use and adds a little bit “grease” for end use.
-Container or Mold: Use to poor the melted wax into to set up as the bar. I used an old 32oz. plastic yogurt container.
-Food/Kitchen Scale: To measure out the right amount of wax to mix together. If you don’t have one, no worries this is not chem. class it does not need to be perfect.
-Wood or Metal Spoon: To stir the wax as it melts.
