Brrrrrrrrrr….. Can You Feel The Cold Yet?
I know i can and Im sick of it already!
But, with every cloud comes a silver lining and the Parka coat is here to save us from those chilly and aggravating days. A suit of armour against the elements!
The Parka has a long history, originally created by Inuit’s as a functional way to protect themselves from the freezing polar conditions, it came to fame in the 50’s and 60’s when it was adopted by British subcultures. Most famously the Mods.
The Parka warmth and robustness makes it a seasonal wardrobe essential; the fur-lined hood and long fitting body is as recognisable today as it was 60 years ago.
We have scoured the web, visited our favourite stores, annoyed a few people, and have come up with the best Parka’s currently available for you to buy.
