TN31 is a relaxed and versatile interpretation of the classic fishtail parka. Lined or unlined it can work for all seasons. It has side pockets, front welt pockets, a back vent and optional drawstring waist. 

Sizes

UK 6 - 18 (US 4 - 16)

Recommended fabric

Dry Oilskin, Oilskin (lined version only), Tweed, Woollens, Cotton Drill, Cotton Canvas, Waterproofed Cottons and Linens. Using something like oilskin will ensure it keeps its structural shape, but we think it would look equally good in something more slinky like a Tencel Twill.

For the ribbing neckline, use a rib that stretches by half again, i.e. 4" / 10 cm piece stretches to 6" / 15 cm. Check out our plain and striped rib here. 

For the lining we would recommend these options: Brushed Cotton, Cotton Poplin, or a medium weight slip lining in viscose or acetate.
