The Storm Parka by Ten C, a new parka in their Fall Winter 2019 line-up taking their inspiration from old military jackets to produce this piece.
The Storm Parka is a remastered version of the long RAF, Ventile parka from the early sixties. The original version, although very effective for its time, is simply too cumbersome and too heavy for contemporary use and was actually worn far more by the Fleet Air Arm than by the RAF itself. The Ten c interpretation retains almost all of the original features and proportions but uses our propriety garment dyed OJJ in place of the double layer Ventile, and offers a range of light, interchangeable Down Liners rather than the incredibly heavy, and moisture seeking, fixed, knitted wool original.
It's made from OJJ Japanese Jersey, the signature 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.
