New York City-based clothier Freeman’s Sporting Club is set to reveal a cold-weather protectant in the form of the Isle of Man Parka. Named after the legendarily treacherous land between the English and Irish isles, the parka was designed for functional performance and movement in freezing conditions. The jacket is executed with a weighty 8.5 ounce waxed cotton outer layer, which will protect from wind and rain. The interior is lined with cozy mil-spec melton wool. These technical effects are housed in an elegant, urban shell, which will look as good in passing on the sidewalk as it will in the winding conditions of a rainy motorcycle race. Made in New York City, look for the Isle of Man Parka at Freeman’s Sporting Club’s web shop for $489 USD.
