A Closer Look: The Fishtail Parka

This fall season Outclass introduced a new cold weather outerwear item - the fishtail parka. The development of this heavy-duty wool jacket was a response to enduring years of Toronto’s unforgiving winter weathers.

A tailored approach to this jacket was taken in order to fit with the Outclass aesthetic, including set in-sleeves and a tailored torso. The shell of the jacket is constructed using a Montreal-made, Loden green melton wool, and is lined with an ultra-soft cotton/tencel flannel hound’s tooth plaid. The parka features a hood that is lined with shearling, providing the utmost natural insulation for the most important part of the body.

Other details include an extended fishtail hem with a drawstring and leather toggles, angled double-welt hand pockets with added flaps that tuck in for a more streamline look, exterior breast pocket with zipper closure and a two-way YKK zipper with metal snap closure for added wind resistance.
