Anyone know of nice warm parkas for winter?

Thanks!


maybe you can check a.p.c site. i got a nice army green one from there recently and i wear it basically every single day. it's not that sporty, quite sleek in design, actually.

i believe comfort is the ultimate luxery, and i really love my parka

parkas are ubiquitous on the streets of NYC at the moment...

anything with a fur trimmed hood in fact...

I found a rather nice looking good quality parka at gap sans the puff factor and fur trimmed hoodie

same here, especially the woolrich ones. i thought it quite pricey, how can everyone affords it like that? it almost become a street uniform, like everyone is from woolrich school or something

i remember last year i had this inexplicable desire for wearing a parka. but this year not so much. i'm feeling more for feminine shaped outerwear at the moment.

anything sans puff and sans hood with fur trim is not a parka...
*see the beginning of this thread...

a parka is the kind of thing one wears on an arctic expedition...

Thanks for that!

I like the Woolrich arctic parka...but the one shown on Refinery is quite different from the one on Woolrich's official website (and on Softgrey's photo).
