The parka has, behind him, a long history far from fashion. Invented by the Inuit to protect themselves from the daily whipping of arctic winds, in a perennially frozen land, the coat with fur hoodie was a garment essential for survival. Unlike the anorak, the other coats with hood used by the Inuit, the parka has a front opening.
In the 50s, a version of this jacket with the fur was adopted by the US Air Force as equipment for the airmen stationed in the colder regions of the globe. Then, the parka has made its entry into the world of fashion in 1959, introduced by Vogue magazine.
In the winter of 2015, the parka has become an inevitable coats in the wardrobe of a man. A perfect blend of functionality, practicality and played down elegance makes this jacket the perfect garment for every informal occasion.
The menswear collection by Fabi offers many models of parka in excellent technical quilted fabric. The filling is 100% genuine goose duvet (in some cases a mixture 90% real down and 10% feather filler) and the hood line’s made of genuine removable fur. In addition to the modern, elegant design, need a note the exquisite finishes, as the wool inserts with finely ribbed cuffs.
