The waxed jacket was perfected by Barbour over a century ago. While some have tried to outdo the British heritage brand at its own game, others have chosen instead to join them, producing some of the most interesting takes on their prized outerwear in the process. Focused on vintage Americana and militaria, Japanese brand Kaptain Sunshine has teamed up with Barbour for a waxed duo of limited parkas.

The Food Mountain Parka is a mid-length parka featuring a hood, snap button front with a storm placket, angled hand pockets, interior pockets, drawstring waist and rear game pocket. The Food Short Parka comes in a boxed and cropped fit detailed with a hood, two large chest pockets, interior mesh lining and drawstring hem.

Both jackets come in beige and black colorways, but you’ll have to go the proxy route if you want to snag them.
