Norse Projects for Oi Polloi Parka

Danish brand Norse Projects and Manchester’s Oi Polloi have combined forces to produce a rather nice parka.

Steve Sanderson, owner of Oi Polloi, says of the parka, “For me, it’s all about rambling, walking and camping in mid to late seventies, it’s the kind of jacket the old guys would be wearing. At the time we thought they looked pretty cool. The jacket we found and chose to use for inspiration is one my favourite outerwear pieces. It was in part designed by a legendary British mountaineer Chris Bonington… we love that it’s cotton, just using 2 layers. A superb simple design. Also, the hoods a great shape and the length a little longer than most jackets – but not so long as to make it a fully fledged mod parka.”

Details, which will also provide all the requisite construction details, after the jump.
