For centuries, the most enduring elements of civilian style have taken their cues from the military. From khaki pants to chronograph watches, so much of the American wardrobe owes its existence to our armed forces.
The parka is no different, developed in the 1950s for service members in frigid outposts such as Korea and northern Europe. A good parka is a foundational piece for anyone who wants to look good while also staying warm. Because of its length, it works well as an overcoat, too, as effective over a sports coat as a t-shirt.
Choose from several designs. The Cold War may be over, but you can win the war against cold and look good doing it too.
