After the first signs of autumn with a lot of rain this morning here in the Netherlands, this collaboration looks planned really well. British Millerain waxed cotton, Primaloft insulation, Talon zippers, wrist gators and an embroidered scout patch – all together in one hell of a parka by Oi Polloi and Norse Projects.

Steve Sanderson, owner of Oi Polloi describes the inspiration for the collaboration: “For me, it’s all about rambling, walking and camping in mid to late seventies, it’s the kind of jacket the old guys would be wearing. At the time we thought they looked pretty cool.”… “The jacket we found and chose to use for inspiration is one my favourite outerwear pieces. It was in part designed by a legendary British mountaineer Chris Bonington… we love that it’s cotton, just using 2 layers. A superb simple design. Also, the hoods a great shape and the length a little longer than most jackets – but not so long as to make it a fully fledged mod parka.”
