The parka was created in 1951 as a raincoat for American troops fighting in the Korean War, with the model M-51. In the late 50s/early 60s, various parka stocks reached England and were sold in its military clothing stores; they were adopted by the mods and over time would become a distinctive mod aesthetic, just like their accessorised scooters.
The parka perfectly met the mods' need to protect themselves during the long, cold, wet British seasons while driving around on their scooters, protecting their clothes which had to be shown off at night in clubs. As was customary for mods, who personalised every aspect of their appearance (both ethical and cultural), they often added words, patches and fur trim to their parkas.
