All the love for the Colimbo Trapper's Shirt leads me to believe a thread is warranted.

But....sorry.....I don't know anything about this brand, nor do I own any Colimbo goods.
And, I don't think these guys even have a website?

the grey wool tweed gun coat



Colimbo is one of the best kept secrets IMO they have the same level of craftmanship and attention to detail as Freewheelers, Real McCoys and like

You're right about them being a secret. I don't think I ever see their stuff in any of the J. magazines.

I like the look of their stuff. I think it's all too small for me though. They also make Kanvasbak right?

^ That's right, it's a sub brand,

They put great attention to detail and use some lovely fabrics which you don't find with other brands, i wonder if they mill their own fabrics...
Their stuff does seem to be made in fairly small sizes, i think they just aim at the Japanese market... for now.

From what I gather, Colimbo products often have very short and tight arms. Fujita at Mushmans told me that he doesn't stock much due to this. I definitely found this to be the case with their Observer's Parka.

Nothing to add except that I like a lot of their stuff.  This stands out to me as a good example of a fresh take on a tried and true concept:


I make things out of leather.

I'm curious.  I've had several inquiries from members about where they might be able to find one of those brown Trapper's shirts.

But I don't see what exactly all the fuss is about? Why y'all like that shirt so much?
