Heritage Research Longline Parka – Present Exclusive
I’ve featured this jacket once before, in a rather fetching yellow that was available from the Original Store (find that here). But I thought it was worthy of another look at this piece of outerwear, especially in this colourway, which is exclusively for East London Menswear shop, Present.
This version of the staple Longline Parka comes in waxed cotton, in this striking royal blue. It’s a fully unlined jacket and all of the internal seams bound in orange English cotton Cambric to make sure water stays out. As I’ve stated in the past, it’s said to have been developed from 60/40 mountain parkas and the classic Maine Fisherman’s jacket, using the best elements of both.
A button up storm flap with high fastening neck and a fitted peaked hood keeps the rain and wind off your head whist the signature military-grade brass RiRi zip, adjustable cuffs and leather adjusters on hood and hem keep the elements at bay elsewhere. A pair of large bellows pockets and internal shooting button braces finish things off and the jacket is hand made in England
As with the first version I featured, this is a cracker of a jacket and one that’s well worth a look if you’re in the market for a lightweight piece for Spring. For more information or to get yourself one, go to their website here: Present.
