The iconic Merc Tobias Parka is a top seller, and rightly so. It has been a flagship style of Merc London for many years; it is often in short supply because of high demand, which makes it all the more desirable!
Merc Tobias Parka Combat Green
The design is close to the original M51 Parka worn by US servicemen. The most popular colour comes in Combat Green; it is also available in Black. The Merc Tobias is however a fashion piece that's right at home in almost any situation, whether that be covering your tonic suit while riding your Lambretta, gathering with your mates down the local Dog & Duck, shopping in the High Street or strolling with your better half through the local wooded beauty spot. Yes, it's versatile! It is also unisex-anyone can wear the Merc Tobias, which is why it is so popular.
The material outer is 48% Polyester, 32% Cotton, 20% Nylon, with a 100% Cotton liner. So it is warm and shower proof and suitable for most of what the UK weather can throw at us.
The Merc Tobias parka is fashionable as well as practical and can be worn for a variety of reasons, whether as a retro Mod style or as a modern and practical fashion item, because it is a timeless style. It has a zip-through fasten with press studs over and concealing placket, drawstring waist with inside fasten, a large inside pocket, two chest pockets with button-down flaps and two large side pockets also with flaps, and of course the all-important fishtail at the back. The cotton lining comes in a red tartan and the hood is oversized in true Mod style.
Whatever your reason for wanting the Merc Tobias Parka, there's no doubt that its versatility and style will make it a go-to staple in your wardrobe.
