Ten C Parka Garment Dyed OJJ Beige
The Parka, one of the Icons in outerwear that should be in every house, at least one.
The fishtail Parka was first used in 1951 by the United States Army as weather protection in the Korean War and later became a cult clothing item for scooter-riding British Mods in the 1960s. This version is based on the loose-fitting M-65, which features a longer back and adapts well to variations in temperature.
OJJ - Original Japanese Jersey - is still THE Ten c fabric. A knitted, not woven, fabric made with a polyester micro fibre/nylon yarn. Ten c is the only company willing to take on the challenge and the problems associated with garment dyeing such a fabric because it believes that the resulting feel, touch and quality is worth it. The garment dyeing of this fabric is exclusive to Ten c.
This jersey will, with time, mould itself almost imperceptibly to your body and will acquire, with use, a unique individual patina, each jacket reflecting its own personal history and that of its user. It will become Your Jacket.
You can complete the Parka for winter time with a shearling liner, shearling hood, or down liner, with our without hood. We stock these items also.
