Harrington Jackets Are Coming Back

Back in January I noticed a really sweet jacket in the back of the J.Crew catalog, the Baracuta jacket you see above. As it turns out, my nose was pointed in the right direction, as the folks over at Valet did a write up about the jackets enduring cool factor. Aaron Levine, design director over at Hickey sums it up best:

“The amazing thing about the Harrington is its resilience to trends, which is what I love about proper clothing… it can be worn with whatever—jeans and a T-shirt or madras trousers with an oxford and a tie.”

I’ll take 3, thanks.

    I could only think of Best in Show the entire time reading this.

    “She was reading the J. Crew catalog… which was so weird, because I was really into J. Crew then… still am.

    We were so lucky. We are SO lucky to be raised amongst catalogs…”
