such an obviously copy is absolutely naughty ... and the best is the following sentence:
„This Parka is so simple yet so stylish, inspired by Nigel Cabourn Everest parka! RARE Heritage Stylish parka design!“ INSPIRED??? shame on you, this is bad copy! found this piece of shit at eBay today. great offer: 45 british pounds. for a handmade parka! and who the F*** is MARCUS VILIM? and the best of it at all: there are people bidding on this damn brazenness – unbelievable. i can't follow those daffy guys. but maybe the customs, ebay or departments which are responsible for fraudulent falsification are with the bidders - hope so. .  pics | ebay by bidder


the cheap bad ass copy from ebay. my gorge is rising ...


  1. The inspired are the inspiring - From Cabourn.com - "this iconic design is inspired by the parka worn by Sir Edmund Hillary on his Antarctic and Everest expeditions." So, who copied who?

    BTW - Han Kjobenhavn also did a pretty close rip-off last season - http://www.nuji.com/product/8ad4e58a-9b4b-43a2-b830-25ed846f582a/han-kjobenhavn-aps-parka-caliroots-com/

    Which I bought for 80 quid in the sales (shame on me, I know)

    H&M have bad rip offs of the "cameraman" and "striped oxford shirt" in their latest catalogue aswell.

    The price of celebrity.

  2. he 6523414612, what's your name ... secret? ....

    HAN, yes we know!


    by the word: NC's parka is inspired as NIGEL says himself – indeed. all the rest are inspired by copying to earn fast money. sorry, just poor! LTG

  3. Your only pissed as you most likely spunked £1600 on the Nigel Cabourn ripoff of the original

  4. THISIS...something, you have no idea what i payed for my parka. and it's better you don't know, because i think YOU WOULD BE PISSED OF ...

  5. I understand what you are saying, it resembles the Everest Parka.
    But how do you know it's poor quality? Do you own one of these parkas?
    Actually interested in buying one, since the design is not from Nigel Cabourn anyway, I just have to research more on Marcus Vilim, But for 150 with real fur, handmade, photos and description are very detailed, it all seems legit.

  6. you think this parka is: handmade, has real fur ... i do not think so. it is absolute impossible to offer this features for this price. it does not work ... anyway. but it's up to you. if you think you have to try? tell us your experience. exciting!

    1. Yes, I understand you on that point, but I know also that the price for the Nigel parka is very very high compared to the cost of the material they use... I also know that the materials and hand labor in Russia is cheap compared to other Euro countries. Anyway I sended a e-mail message to the russian manufacturer and they even said they can make custom order if I whant, like other types of fur and fabric material like twill coton colors etc... That seams good to me since I dont like non removable fur.

      I will tell you what I think of the jacket after review.

  7. No reply from Valter... hmmm.

    There's absolutely no excuse for buying snide. You may persuade yourself that no one can tell the difference. They can. And they think you look like a bad cheapskate.

    If you don't want to part with Cabourn money buy something else or buy vintage.. check Eddie Bauer down jackets of Etsy for starters.

  8. I have one Marcus Vilim parka. Love it and use about 2 years. Absolutely great item. I see that in note - old photos. In my parka - sheepskin collar and other buttons. I have Aircraft Blue colour. I use it at -25 and feel myself OK. Fabric is very durable like on my N3B parka - but it's not so shine - anyway it's nylon or polyester. Same 2 way pockets as at Nigel's Everest parka - very usefull. Also I like fur ! It's fox i guess - big and looks great.
    Price was about 180 pounds... VS Nigels 1800 pounds lol
    I think for that price it's GREAT item. Regards, Mike

  9. I recently bought a Marcus Vilim parka, for £180. I wanted a light blue colour, so the makers of the jacket liaised with me frequently to ensure they chose the right colour fabric and that it was to my liking. The jacket I bought has been made to order, and I am very happy with it. The coat is of very high quality, and is very warm. Yes, it resembles a Nigel Cabourn at a fraction of the price, but not all of us have thousands of pounds to spend on the real deal.
    If someone judges me negatively because I'm wearing a coat that isn't designer, that is their issue. I've got better things to worry about and I can wear what I want. I don't want to buy 'something else' and I dont want to buy vintage.
    All in all, the coat is very good value for money and I would reccomend to those who aren't pretentious enough to care that it isnt an Everest parka.
    Cheers, Sophie.

  10. Sophie, who is judged negatively by whom wearing this f***ing copy? Nobody. It is about those who are copying – nothing more, nothing less. It does not interest me if you go naked or in a western dress. But YOU should be careful in your choice of words. Keep cool and stay happy with your awesome Marcus Vilim parka.
