Nigel Cabourn beefed up his technical, outdoorsy outerwear with more robust fabrics for fall, while building out two newer lower-priced collections, Lybro and The Army Gym.
He added some armor to his oversize outwear — including a Thirties-style sherpa jacket and single-breasted overcoat — with a technical, dry wax Harris tweed that’s water-resistant. His classic cameraman jacket and vest got extra quilting.
Lybro, a workwear brand that Cabourn purchased a few years ago and has since spun into a collection for a younger audience, featured yards of Japanese selvedge denim for loose shirts, deconstructed jackets, waistcoats and roomy trousers meant to be layered and mixed with the Harris tweed suits in the main collection.
The Army Gym, Cabourn’s new line of retro-tinged athleticwear, includes thick cotton T-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts inspired by Army sports gear. A fan of early-morning boxing, Cabourn said he couldn’t find anything that would allow him to punch, sweat and look good simultaneously so he decided to make it himself.
