If you could only ever have one parka in your closet for the rest of your life, it should probably be this one. Nigel Cabourn takes no prisoners when it comes to fine materials and clean design and this parka is sort of the epitome of what he produces. This masterpiece is made from two of the UK's better known fabric specialists, Mackintosh and Harris Tweed. Both produced in Scotland, Mr. Cabourn was able to keep manufacturing close at home while most of his market remains in Asia. The woolen body of the jacket is sure to keep you warm while looking really great, and nicely complimented by the tonal grey top. There aren't a lot of good grey parkas on the market, and although this comes in navy as well, the grey is really the most impressive. The price tag is of course high, but it's a piece you'll only have to buy once. It would go with everything, be nicer than other options and buying a vintage version just wouldn't be the same. Nigel Cabourn really does improve on the classics with an updated manufacturing process, higher quality materials and a very tidy aesthetic, it's really an impressive piece.
