Nigel Cabourn | Thomas Crean Sleeping Bag Jacket

Maybe it's because you just screened Liam Neeson's existential arctic wolf chase, The Grey, but this limited edition coat from British outfitter Nigel Cabourn is howling your name. Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Captain Robert F. Scott's final, fateful Antarctic expedition, the Sleeping Bag Jacket is inspired by the sheepskin sleeping bags that the 1912 expedition party made themselves. Nigel Cabourn worked closely with the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, spending six years researching the expedition and focusing on the clothing and gear the explorers used. The jacket is crafted in Scotland by Aero Leathers. The book is included.
And for good measure, this delightful interview with Mr. Cabourn, in which he describes his mission as a designer.
