Burberry fishtail parka: Where are the Mods?

We all know that I am partial to a fishtail parka, so I couldn't let this offering by Burberry Brit pass me by without at least a cursory nod.

And this does look the part. Waxed cotton, and quite a nice looking derivative of the 1951 pattern original so beloved of those who ride scooters.

Burberry has given the classic a slimmer silhouette a bit of check in the lining, and smartened the whole thing up a bit.

Given their pedigree with the trenchcoat (they didn't invent it, we have Aquascutum to thank for that) you really have to wonder why they didn't have a go at the fishtail yonks ago.
