The Classics: The Parka - MR.PORTER
From indigenous people of the Arctic to Quadrophenia, by way of the US military and then indie bands, the parka has proved itself to be more than just a practical winter coat. Its name is the sole word in English derived from Nenets, the language spoken in the Arctic north of Russia close to where the parka originated. Typically made from caribou or sealskin and trimmed with fur, the hooded Inuit jacket is the model for today’s parkas, which first came to prominence in the 1950s when the US military developed the N-3B snorkel parka.
Levi’s Vintage Clothing Double Breasted Parka
“Depending on who you listen to, either the ’90s back, the ’80s back (or never left) or the ’70s back. Judging by this parka, we’d definitely say ’70s back. Why, you ask? Because this coat is so Huggy Bear it hurts. In fact, I’m surprised Levi’s didn’t get Antonio Fargas to model in their lookbook. You’ve still got time to do it Levi’s, just don’t forget to pay us consulting fees.”
