Invented in 1937 by English company Baracuta, the Harrington jacket is an ideal spring layer that's looked good on guys of all ages for decades. Somewhere between a casual golf jacket and a technical raincoat, they're often made from cotton and feature a ribbed hem and cuffs, along with that iconic two-button throat latch. Here are a few of the best ones we've seen lately:
$68 / $54
This sporty nylon style includes a drawstring bottom and button cuffs, differing a little from the traditional ribbed cuffs and hem.
This plaid-lined cotton/poly interpretation comes in a variety of colors with tonal horn buttons on the hand-warmer pockets.
J.Crew updated the jacket that started it all with a trimmed down fit and gave the cotton a water-resistant Teflon coating.
Cut from cotton in a classic fit with a funnel neck and ribbed cuffs, this is an affordable, no-nonsense interpretation.
Polo Ralph Lauren, $200
This has the traditional detail of a rain guard on the back and is lightweight, making it ideal for warmer weather.
