While trench coats or overcoats-has a style more sober and duffle coats or pea coats bring an undeniable spirit to the nautical, the parkas appear as an option coat male casual this winter, marking its presence in the various shops and brands, from the popular to the more expensive. Not everyone remembers, but this piece already had its time of glory in the late ‘ 90s, when he took account of the storefronts of some of the capitals of the country, being placed in the background shortly after, losing ground for some of the models mentioned at the beginning of this text.
The origin of the Parka
The parka (or meager) was based on the jackets made by the eskimos, as well as another piece used a lot in the winter: the anorake. The difference between the two is very small, being the anorake devoid of a front opening, while the parka can be opened by means of buttons and/or zips. Despite this “inspiration” in the clothing of the inhabitants of the arctic, the genesis of the parka, as it is known today, came in the army in the 50’s, but it didn’t take long for him to fall in the taste of the young, especially of the Mods (we have already talked about them here) who ended up helping to popularize the jacket.
Characteristics of the Parka Male
The thick mode, the parka is a hooded jacket, but there are some other features that help to identify the piece as the length, most of the time, goes up to the half of the thigh, drawstring at the waist that makes the times of the belt, leaving the silhouette acinturada, the two pockets that are located just below and to the presence of dragonas on the shoulders, remembering clearly a piece of clothing military.
With time, the parka, as well as any clothing, was suffering modifications in order to appeal to more diverse audiences. The military green and khaki gave place to an immense range of colors, materials, usually cotton twill, gabardine and nylon, have opened up space for the jeans, cotton, wool and polyester. The hood often has lining on the inside and skin on the edges, but there are models much simpler without any of these additives. The method of closing that has already been exclusively for buttons now can have zipper, velcro or even hooks and carabiners!
Within these variations, the only item that needs most attention is the volume of the clothes. The versions of the nylon can be dried, with a trim very close to the body or with a filling of feathers, as the jackets of climbers, these should be avoided by those who are very overweight or those who do not is very high, precisely not to highlight any of the features, unless the person is comfortable with them, which is a bit rare.
Another detail that has changed a lot over the years was the length, of pieces that reach over the knees and others so short that they seem to jackets, the parka has been adapted to the use both in the urban environment, as well as in places with forests and snow.
How to use parka – the Office
A lot of people, on cold days, use the parka in the same way that an overcoat or trench coat, or top of the suit, and despite not having the same trim of the pieces mentioned above, the parka gains in protection and functionality thanks to its hood, your pockets and your comfort.
Combinations more casual, but without the open hand of the shirt and the tie, also work well for those who do not need a suit, but need a visual aligned to the professional environment.
How to use parka – Casual
The parka is ideal to mount looks casual with an air of slightly desencanado, that mixture of stylish outfits but which make it seem that those who uses are completely wishes. Jeans combine very well, especially if accompanied by a running shoes remarkable, contrasting with the coat, most of the time neutral. Another piece that makes a beautiful pair with the parka is the grid, complementing the look of winter in one way cool!
Detail, such as leather trim on the photo above make the piece even more stylish, in this case a basic t shirt and jeans, nice enough.
