Quadrophenia was the sixth studio album released by iconic British rock band The Who on 19 October 1973. The album cover features a mod sat a top a scooter wearing a fishtail parka. The mod used for the photo was Terry Kennett who was a 23 year old paintsprayer from Battersea. Terry Kennett was discovered by Pete Townshend in the Butcher's Arm pub near Ramport studio's. It was Roger Daltery's idea to paint the back of the fishtail parka with the Who Q signage and the infamous design was born.

If you read the size chart above you will be able to easily choose the right size for you.

How ??....easy, I recommend a tape measure and taking your measurements first, i.e. Chest, measure around under your arms, arm length from shoulder seam to the end of the cuff, and for length, simply check length of parka then run the tape measure from your neck line down....

Then, check your measurements against the size chart and you can find your best fit...

For chest size, you want 6-8 inches spare..so if your chest measures exactly 42 inches, you want a 50" size small parka.
