American outerwear heavyweight Holubar was born in Colorado in 1947 by Alice and Ray Holubar, who initially began by selling surplus items like down sleeping bags, parkas, backpacks and climbing pitons. By the 1950s, the Holubars had pioneered the use of nylon and down filling, as well as being credited with the invention of the Mountain Parka.
Having recently been taken over by a group of Italian clothing enthusiasts, the brand has seen a return to the spotlight and have released the Metro Mountain Parka for AW18. The cold-weather coat boasts an Italian-made nylon blend shell that’s stuffed with 80/20 down/feather insulation. It includes a large detachable hood with a cozy blend of alpaca, mohair, cotton, and wool, five external pockets, snap closures with leather reinforcements, and a RiRi zipper to close it all up.
Available for $898 at Milworks.
