Yes good point - to be fair it wasn't until 2010 that the Parka was reissued in the Authentic range - in orange and blue
Before then it was redone in orange and navy for the Utility at Debanhams using more cost effective materials
The original ones for the Everest collection were numbered and comprehensively labelled and used deadstock Pertex - I don't know how many were made but I don't think anyone who has one would be all that upset that it has been reissued in the Authentic range as the piece has become even more desirable and the price has tripled
I bought mine in 2010 when it was around £1500 retail
I remember looking at the limited collection in 2003, I believe Liberty, Duffer and Mr Start in London stocked various pieces. I recall Liberty had a special display. The Parka at that time had a retail price of £800 which seemed like silly money at the time, but I know they sold really well.
How does something that retails for £1500 in 2010 increase to £2400 with-in 3 years?
