Ralph Lauren’s most recent sub-line, Denim & Supply, provides urban pieces with inflections of the wilderness. With an underlying emphasis on hardy workwear and utilitarian styling within each collection, the brand have capitalised on the current parka trend by releasing their own version.
The olive green Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Army Parka is constructed of a cotton blend, and features a detachable hood with a faux fur trim and faux Sherpa lining – hitting yet another key trend of the season.
On the surface this may look like an ‘Average Joe’ parka, but the quality of construction and luxurious detailing sets it apart from the current mass-produced versions on the market. Case in point; this particular parka is feather quilted, providing warmth and comfort that is a noticeable upgrade when compared to thinner high street counterparts – a prime example of considering more than just how something looks when adding to your wardrobe.
The jacket comes in a classic fit but does contain a toggle for tightening around the waist – perfect for those that work out and want to show off their masculine ‘V’ frame. Styling wise, this parka will complement most pieces within your wardrobe. Its roots will always be in military and outdoorsy type aesthetics, but that doesn’t mean you cannot combine it with tailoring this year to provide a welcome clash of styles.
You can buy this parka now from ASOS.
