3sixteen x Alpha Industries M-59 Fishtail Parka - Natural Iron Dye
The 3sixteen x Alpha Industries M-59 Fishtail Parka returns this FW19 in another herringbone twill fabric from Japan, but this time with a killer natural iron dye and tree bark tannin for a washed-out grey color with cool undertones. This is part of their head-to-toe collection and a continuation of Alpha Industries' Made in USA line.
The jacket is a modern take on the original Fishtail Parka that was first developed in 1951. The parka's "Fishtail" naming comes from the split skirt tail that resembles a fish, which can be snapped into the parka when not needed. The original intent was for the fishtail was to be wrapped around a soldier's leg for additional protection from the elements.
Note: Jacket runs slightly small for sizes S and M and closer to TTS in L and XL; please double check measurements. In S and M, we recommend sizing up one if you are on the mid-to-larger end of your size and want to layer underneath. For S and M, you can take your typical size if you fall on the smaller end of your size for a very slim fit (only recommended if you are really on the small end of your size).
