Ace Hotel Introduces New Fishtail Parka

Posted by Rose Finn on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 1:34 PM

When the sky pummels you with rain for nine months out of the year, it's hard not to feel like you're instantly in combat every time you leave the house. This is why uber-trendy Ace Hotel and military outerwear aficionados Alpha Industries have teamed up to make the ultimate rain-fighting super jacket; the waterproof fishtail parka.

Based on the classic army M-65 Fishtail parka, this coat has a nylon shell and adjustable hood and waist, so you don't have to keep wearing that shapeless Uni-bomber jacket your mom got for you at the Gap three years ago. It's warm, it's hip, and it's durable. If you can cough up the $300 (which is comparable to any well-made coat these days), then get ready to be "coated" in style. Heh *cough*
