The Brighton Parka by Upright Cyclist is modeled after the US Army M51 parka popular in 1950s-60s England. Teenagers loved its cheap cost, durability, and fit on a moped. The M51 quickly became a signature piece of apparel for the Mod movement in London and southern England.
While retaining the original’s aesthetics, Upright Cyclist’s take has a slimmer, shorter profile with a more modern feel and is built for riding in foul weather. Rather than cotton canvas, Upright Cyclist used a breathable, waterproof backed nylon with a textured face, which mimics military olive drab nicely. The Brighton is completely seam taped and has a ton of features: waterproof zippers, pit zips for ventilation, quail pocket, two way adjustable hood, felted pockets, and more.
The Brighton Fishtail Parka is on presale now with delivery expected in early December.
