The North Face Sierra Parka - Then & Now
It could be argued that we know a thing or two about clothes in our office, and that’s not just the brand-new stuff.
We’re also borderline eBay, Depop, thrift store addicts, some of us have a penchant for ‘90s Patagonia, some favour vintage LL Bean, some Canadian made Arc’teryx, if it’s vintage, classic, well designed and comes from a good stable we’re probably interested...
So, when the new North Face Sierra Parka 3.0 came into the office, it received a resounding thumbs up, we all appreciated it for what it is; a remarkably authentic remake of the mid ‘70s Sierra Parka. A bright spark in the office even pulled out a selection of vintage North Face catalogues and found the original represented within a 1979 catalogue containing The North Face’s proclamations of the key design features that made-up this jacket 40 years ago. And, they’ve really stayed true to the original with this remake, lovely camel coloured outer with a soft handle and quintessential safety orange nylon lining with 600 power down fill, two-way front zip, adjustable cuff with poppers and a big detachable hood.
Keep on scrolling to see what we found in that 1979 catalogue and how it compares to this years Sierra Parka 3.0.
If you’re sat there appreciating this classically styled, detail rich down parka and appreciate vintage American outdoor gear, you could do a lot worse than picking up this fastidious recreation.
