Parka London's heritage can be traced back to 1948, where Alfie Lever, a tailor's son, enters the outerwear world inspired by the utilitarian designs of his former RAF uniform. After decades of producing high quality outerwear for many major brands in London. They now create their own range of impressive outerwear still inspired by the utilitarianism of military uniforms under the label Parka London. Quality and style are amongst the main tenets of Parka London which can easily be seen by their timeless parka.
Originally simply a factory that created outerwear from their factory in East London, the Lever family were a leader in the production of military outerwear. By the 60s they were producing Parkas for the fashion world as well, and were soon one of the biggest companies in the British outerwear game. By 2013 the brand decided to create its own identity and thus Parka London was born.
