Here we have the Gold by Toyo Enterprise Italian Military Parka, cut from a lightweight and breathable ventile fabric in Japan.
Ventile is generally speaking the world's most effective, natural, all-weather cotton textile that is grown sustainably. Developed in the 1940's by the British Military, Ventile was later favoured by a variety of outdoor companies for the naturally breathable and water repellent properties.
The Ventile Military Parka from Gold is inspired by 1940's issued USN Salvage Parkas but features an updated silhouette and construction and is no ways a reproduction item. Officially coined the 'Decontamination Smock Parka' it is more commonly known as Salvage Parka or Gunners Smock. There were numerous styles made during this period and in a number of colours, issued and used for different purposes.
A great offering from Gold, the Ventile Military Parka is a traditional 'smock' or pullover style jacket. Gold have adjusted the fit around the front opening making it easier to put on and take off. A three button front has been paired with two large utilitarian chest pockets while the hem and hood features a drawstring tie closure. An updated relaxed fit has been paired with a two button cuff to adjust fit.
