Dress like George Mallory, thanks to Nigel Cabourn

George Mallory & Teddy Norton high on Everest in 1922 English designer Nigel Cabourn has been churning out historically-inspired men's outerwear for the past 40 years.

From items inspired by Hillary's 1953 Fairydown summit parka to Tom Bourdillon's inside-out-and-backwards sweater, Cabourn has built a career of making the old into, well, new.

And, this fall, he's putting out a whole line of clothing inspired by Mallory & Irvine's clothes from the 1924 Everest Expedition. A few years ago, Cabourn was invited by the Royal Geographic Society to study and inspect the clothing samples we brought back after finding Mallory's body in 1999. In this fall collection, he's tried to reproduce those garments as closely as possible.

So, if you want to look like Mallory this fall – and don't mind dropping a couple grand to do so – think about outfitting yourself in the styles below:

Nigel Cabourn Mallory Jacket - Navy

The Mallory Jacket, £575.00

Nigel Cabourn Mallory Waist Coat - Stone
