Nigel Cabourn Cameraman’s jacket
Ready to shoot! The cameraman’s jacket.
Nigel Cabourn is a man who’s devoted his career in England to making sensible working clothes based on original patterns. The indestructible jacket we offer here is a good example of his work. It will not only give its wearer complete protection from wind and weather but also plenty of space for carrying ‘tools of the trade’ – including easily breakable things.
It’s made of two different materials. The top part has a hood, shoulder section and sleeves of tough woven cotton with a layer of natural ‘Macintosh’ rubber, and is therefore water- and snow-proof. This part is without inner lining in order to facilitate movement and leave room for an additional pullover when the weather’s particularly awful. The lower part (from the chest downwards) is made of warm, heavy weather-resistant wool twill from Fox Brothers of Somerset. It also has a sturdy cotton lining. There are four roomy outside pockets for things you need for the working day; and the left-hand pockets have an extra small pocket each for writing things, mobile phone etc. The top part is equipped with military-style, storm-proof easy-to-open metal clips.
Our All-Round Outside Cloths – a note on the cotton we use.
We always prefer to use natural-fibre cloth where it is the special weave, not some synthetic process that gives it its wind- and weather-resistant qualities. We like tradition too – so you’ll find the extra reinforcing patches in the places where the originals had them. The basic cloth we use for all the garments is therefore – true to tradition – cotton, impregnated according to the original ‘Macintosh’ method: in this case, a sheet of rubber in between a double layer of cotton that makes the jacket totally waterproof. We use the same technique here that was used at the beginning of the 19th century.
