The 1947 N1 Deck Parka jacket by Pike Brothers is the perfect winter jacket. It keeps you warm during the cold and snowy days. The jacket is based on an original US Navy jacket which was introduced at the end of the second world war, around 1947. It was produced in order to provide the sailors with better equipment at sea to give them more comfort and warmth when they were on the deck.
