Heritage Research North Woods Parka

January 4, 2012

As yesterday’s post showed, even though we’re still in the depths of Winter many shops have already started taking delivery of their Spring/Summer 2012 stock. New from the UK’s Heritage Research is this – an updated, lightweight version of the popular Northwoods Parka jacket.

Constructed from premium cotton linen, the jacket comes in a Khaki/Costard colourway (with the upper half moon yolk and hood in the lighter of the two colours) and is fully lined in a contrast blue patterned cotton. The design takes elements from classic American outerwear but produces a coat that makes a welcome change from the myriad 60/40 parka’s out there.

Featuring a pair of front snap-closure bellow pockets and a concealed zip-fastening pocket at the placket there’s room aplenty for bits and pieces. Both the hood and hem are adjustable thanks to leather toggles and the main body of the jacket is done up via a military grade RiRi zip, before being covered with a placket that’s fastened by antique brass press studs.

The whole thing is handmade in England and looks to be another excellent piece of outerwear from the brand. I spotted this on End Clothing’s website yesterday, so if you fancy one of these jackets they’re available here: Heritage Research North Woods Parka.

    There is something I just don’t like about brass poppers.

      I know what you mean. On this I think they work, but only because of the colour it comes in – otherwise I’d rather have them the colour of the jacket, or dark like Barbour do theirs.

    I always prefer two tone 60/40 (stylee’) parkas. And I like this too.

    Anything ‘antiqued’ is a outright no-no from me.
