In the 1960s UK, the parka became a symbol of the Mod Subculture. Because of their practicality, the parka was seen as the ideal garment for fending off the elements and protecting smarter clothes underneath from grease and dirt when on the mod's vehicle of choice, their Vespa scooters.

Its place in popular culture was assured by newspaper pictures of "parka-clad" mods during the Bank Holiday Riots of the 1960s where notoriously violent brawls between the Mods and Rockers in England. a few years later the Parka was adopted by other working class youths, the Skinheads. Later seeing another revival in subculture/pop culture with the bands of the Britpop scene such as Oasis wearing them on stage.
