"Well done to all at Fishtail Parkas!"

"I gave you a pretty tough challenge and you came up trumps!I called with the order on Thursday pm requesting delivery for Tuesday am - just to make it interesting you had to also complete the real fur switch!!

Well you completed your mission perfectly as the coat arrived about 9.30 am on Tuesday.

Top job & a top PARKA - I couldn't have asked for more!"

Nigel Dibbo UK

"Fantastic looking piece of kit"

"Just a quick email to say a big Thankyou for getting the parka here so quickly for a birthday present, after chatting on the phone. Fantastic looking piece of kit and a brilliant service from you.! Well done and thanks again, he's going to be well chuffed."

All the best,
Rob Holgate UK

Received my M-1951 Parka today.It fits perfectly for my requirements, i.e. to wear it over my business suit, to commute to work on my Scoot, just as we discussed and you promised.

It was more than I wanted to pay originally, but for a piece of history, born around the same time as me, it is worth every penny, and indeed more, (which I never ever admit)

Putting it on transports me to a different time and place, the fondly remembered past, recapturing some of my happy adolescent memories.

My wife will kill me for spending our hard earned, but , I can tell you, it is worth it. "Brilliant"

"Hi Fishtail Parkas"

Just to let you know I received my parka just before lunch.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits with it....its all your advert said it would be.

I've made a comment on my Facebook wall about how pleased I am

I have a brand new Vespa LX50 in red with the full chrome kit fitted so the parka is gonna look really ace against the red (o:

Once again thanks very much

We have two Quadrophenia parka options to choose from:
1. Authentic M-1965 which comes complete with a real fur hood, or
2. Our Classic M-1951 fishtail parka which has a fixed hood that forms part of the outer shell. This is the correct style parka as used by The Who and worn throughout their cult film Quadrophenia.

*** The Who acquired our Classic M-1951 fishtail parka complete with 'The Who' Q signage on the back and relevant patches for their US & UK Quadrophenia 2012 / 2013 tour. ***

We advise to leave 6 to 8 inches spare underneath a parka for wearing jumpers, suits etc. Plus it helps achieve the correct look as these parka's are not meant to worn fitted. Therefore, a person with a 42 inch chest measurement would require size small.

"Absolutely Fantastic"

Just got the parka. It’s absolutely fantastic, the wolf trim looks great and I can’t wait to go for a ride on the vespa!"


Alex Milton UK
"Fast and Reliable Service"

"Thanks for a fast and reliable service. My parka (with wolf fur hood) arrived safe and sound and looks great. Also, your recommendations on sizing were spot on - the small is definitely large enough! I can't wait for the cold weather to arrive.

David Thackery, Australia

"Thrilled, Spectacular, Awesome"

"Thank you for all your help with finding me an original M-1951 Parka. The package arrived today much sooner than expected (only took three days to cross the pond). When I opened the box, I was thrilled. As describe, the parka and liner were in near un issued condition. In fact, they were spectacular! The Wolf fur on the detachable hood is awesome and really adds character to the parka. Please tell your refurbished they did one heck of a job. Finally, the advice you gave me regarding sizing was spot on and the parka fits exactly as desired."

Scott, Connecticut, USA

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the parka. Size is perfect. The condition of it is excellent - new and old at the same time.

I have practically not left the house without it since I received it in December. It is both smart and practical (the weather in Denmark have been very snowy and cold) and I really enjoy the hood with fur (my first parka came without fur and hood liner). Definetely my best x-mas present in years."
