Closer Look | Alpha Industries N-3B Slim Fit Parka With the winter weather finally here, it’s time to pull out the snorkels and parkas for that added layer of protection. The folks at Alpha Industries sent one of their N-3B Slim Fit parkas over to us to try out and we have to say we’re glad they did. It features a flight nylon outer shell with contrasting nylon lining and polyfill for a thicker layer between you and the elements. The slim fit cut coupled with the longer length give way to added insulation and a effortless look. The jacket delivers a lot of utility as it features two front pockets as well as two chest pockets while there’s a pocket on the inside as well for added storage. We actually like the jacket’s toggle and zip closure up front, allowing the user to utilize either or both, whatever his mood. Beyond all this, the hood is a great addition as well as it is lined with synthethic mouton fur and trimmed with removable faux coyote fur. The N-3B Slim Fit parka is available now through Alpha’s online store. Photography: Por Homme Shane I picked this parka up last week at Urban Outfitters here in Canada ($45! — marked down from $225) and it is truly wonderful. I got the Large Slim Fit (6’4”, 200lbs) and it fits perfectly, sleeves and all. Same color as pictured, too. scab Looks great, but I would’ve loved to see a fit pic.
