Few brands blend vintage fashion and historical significance the way Nigel Cabourn does. The eponymous English fashion house is well renowned for offering what can only be described as archival pieces or, in other words, garments with a history. The SS12 Aircraft Jacket Desert Wax Poplin Khaki ($710) is part of the Nigel Cabourn Authentic line which was inspired by the famous mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary and his 1953 Everest expedition. The jacket is produced exclusively in the UK and is made using 100% Scottish Oilcloth cotton from the same mills that have been manufacturing materials for the British military for over the last sixty years.
