Designed by Daiki Suzuki and available in a choice of green or blue (I’m definitely in the ‘green’ camp), this US-made fishtail parka (which is pretty much what it is despite the name) is a double cloth cotton design and a great option for the autumn. This is what you want to be covered in when the rain comes down.
I know someone on social media will point out that you can get an army surplus fishtail parka cheaper and they would be right. I have one somewhere and barely wear it. Which is because reworks of the coat like this are of a much higher quality. In fact, even the versions in somewhere like Uniqlo look sharper than the old military coats. But it’s your choice.
Saying that, Engineering Garments is a premium label and you do pay a lot for it. £519 to get one of these in your life. But if you look after it, this is the kind of coat that will come out year after year.
Update: There is still one of last year’s models in the End Sale right now in an extra large – see there same link above for it for £355.
