Fall Find #1

A Khaki-Green Parka

I’ve already picked up a black peacoat, loafers, urban hiking boots and here, and a number of crewneck sweaters, so there aren’t many items on my fall wishlist. However, I am looking for few key pieces and will post on them this week. First up is a khaki parka and I’m leaning toward the longer length.

Moncler, APC and here, Saint Laurent.

  • You might also want to consider Canadian brands such as Mackage, Rudsak , Soia and Kyo and others. Unlike one of the more popular parkas, you won’t see yourself coming and going, so to speak. These brands frequently have nice touches such as leather trim, interesting zippers, etc. If anyone knows how to do a winter parka correctly, it’s Canada. Good luck with your search. I greatly enjoy your site and have been a daily visitor since 2012. It truly is the definition of ‘chic.’

  • I am in total agreement with Carol. The Canadian brands really understand winter wear and fashion. I too love your site. Good luck with your search for the perfect khaki parka.

  • I like the APC parka – not so heavy and I do love the length.

  • My daughter found her khaki green short jacket – a classic shape, sort of a bomber jacket – at Madewell a couple of seasons ago. Shell feels/looks like cotton, it’s not down filled, perfect for Indian Summer/crisp fall/ mild winter days. Great with blue, black, or white jeans, as well as her casual dresses.

  • Also consider Nili Lotan. I have a Spring/Fall khaki long parka that is very chic. She does the khaki parka very well!

  • Absolutely agree with Carol, I bought my long black down winter coat from Rudsak two years ago and have never seen it on anyone else. It’s definitely more chic than the Goose and more affordable than Moncler. I was just at the store in Montreal and unfortunately didn’t see any khaki, but I’m sure they’re in no rush to put out the winter gear.

  • Love the APC parka (suzanne koller ) but it didnt feel like it would be warm enough for NYC winter. 🙁
