Men's Packable Parka Wool Windowpane Check (Made by Mackintosh)
Our checked Parka is a statement piece in this AW21 collection which we’re extremely pleased about.
There is arguably no piece of outerwear that’s had more of an impact on contemporary culture than the fishtail Parka. First made popular in the aftermath of the Korean War, when thousands of surplus pieces entered the wardrobes of the average civilian, they were then embraced by Mods who blessed them with a cool status. Today, they’re a certified classic that looks great on everyone and can be worn in a variety of ways.
Exclusively made for us by our friends Mackintosh, we’ve pulled from their archive a Loro Piana navy wool fabric, which has a plush handle and a striking windowpane check, and is composed of two layers of wool that are bonded together. Meanwhile the seams have all been heat-sealed to create something that’s impressively proficient at repelling water and wind. Whilst we’ve produced Parka coats in the past, this is our newest and most improved version with a couple of updates. The most subtle one is the use of a waxed cotton drawstring finished with an old-school Hangman’s knot.
Elsewhere, there are two large angled pockets with button fastening on the waist, an oversized fixed hood with a peak to keep out rain, and a fishtail hem. One aspect of this coat that’s particularly of note is the perfect check matching all over the body, which highlights Mackintosh’s exceptional fabric cutting ability. Overall, this Parka has a generous, oversized fit which allows you to wear multiple layers beneath and will provide maximum protection in inclement weather.
