The parka jacket for men - a fashionable evergreen
Some garments simply defy trends. Parkas are such a phenomenon, people have worn them for decades! However, the jacket was not always a modern classic. Over the last few decades, it has undergone an astounding change from faux pas to fashion statement. It was the inventive Inuit's that founded the parka. In their language, the term parka means "heat". They created these coats to keep them warm and protect against the extreme cold and wind while hunting or fishing. Since the middle of the 20th century the jacket has also been used by the U.S. Army due to its effective features. The story begins in 1960's Britain. Here it served as a uniform of the so-called modernists - for short, mods. This jacket had the duty of protecting the costly clothes of the motorcycling mods. Back then, they wore tailor-made suits and branded clothing to conceal their working class unbringing. The movement also spread in other European countries. During the time of the military look in the mid-sixties, the garment broke through the men's fashion scene in an instant. Since then, it has been extremely influential in male and female fashion alike.

It is available in an assortment of bright colours, but can also look cool in khaki or dark blue. In general, the shift towards strong colours is evident. Classic models in olive green are still very popular, but they are getting a lot of competition from more vibrant styles. Strong blues look best with brown and maroon. If that isn't eye-catching enough, you should experiment with delicate pastel colours. Earth tones have made a comeback this year and fit perfectly into the vintage boho style.
