The Fishtail Find

— Sun, 18th October 2009 —

On its list of choice winter gear, GQ endorses the “fishtail parka,” which apparently came into being during the Korean War, but rose to cultural prominence during England’s mod movement of the ’60s. It recommends a Relwen for about $600 — which you might be able to score for half-off at Bloomies in January — and a Michael Bastian for $1,700. As an alternative, we suggest this Gloverall at C.M.C.M. down from $600 to $235 right this minute.
