For the most miserable of winter days, C.P. Company's new flagship parka has a wire hood to keep it from flopping into eyes, while shielding heads from the elements without the need for buttons or toggles. When worn down, the wire easily shapes around the neck.
Made from a durable nylon-cotton blend, the coat's other functional elements include a high collar, drawstring waist adjustment, a fishtail back and the Italian brand's characteristically large pockets. At £625 (available online from C.P. Company), it's an outerwear investment sure to last for dozens of chilly seasons.
