Every winter season sees EG release new versions of their Highland Parka, and every year they piss all over the competition. But this season Daiki and his band of contemporary brothers have really pushed the boat out.
The usual pockets, buttons and drawstrings remain ever-present, yet this season you get to pretend you’re a snazzy hooded shaman in this embroidered floral corduroy, or a founding member of Boro’s ‘Frontline’ in that 12oz olive bull denim.
Until now I’ve been comfortable in the knowledge I’ll be cosying up to TEN C’s Olive Parka this winter, and then these highlands come along and the shit firmly hits the fan. So is the grass greener? Christ knows, but it appears I’ve got some serious soul searching to do before making any definitive big coat choices. Parka politics, what a bind eh!
