Nigel Cabourn Everest Parka: summit in the air

That night I was down the pub in Spitalfields this fella came in wearing a thick orange down-filled parka with a fleece collar and fastened only by the drawstring at the waist. He'd tied his scarf,  which had a red Aquascutum check, with a long drop at the front and tucked the tail into the drawstring.

On the wrong person, and given the time of year, this could have looked like he had just emerged from Santa's grotto, but on him it worked.

Courtesy of the chaps at I have now tracked down the parka. It is the Everest Parka by Nigel Cabourn, and here's a look at the blue version.
