Archival Review – Anoraks

Posted on: February 3rd, 2014 by Lesli Larson

I’m sifting through my reference collection of anoraks in search of exemplary specimens. Anoraks are one of those garment styles that I admire most in photo form. While I own a few anoraks my own (by Roffe and Barbour), none fit as well those sported in vintage photographs of mountaineers or cyclists. My favorite versions are made from waxed cotton or ventile with a large, central kangaroo pocket and a waist cinch.  I love how the anorak form works in so many kinds of fabric.  Lightweight is best but who wouldn’t love an all wool pullover for the dead of winter.
