Enduring Classic

The
Harrington
Jacket

Baracuta,
$549

In 1937, Baracuta, a clothier out of Manchester, England invented a lightweight cotton jacket with tab collar dubbed the G9. Somewhere between a casual golf jacket and a technical raincoat, they make for an ideal spring layer. Perhaps that's why so many brands now make a version of the jacket. Often referred to as a Harrington, the all-season outerwear has always looked good on guys of all ages. Which is why it's been embraced by everyone from preps and punks to Hollywood legends. And while Baracuta still makes the original model, they've updated the G9 for spring with this color-blocked take. And they're not the only ones making modernized options. From bold plaid versions to simplified and chambray-trimmed styles, get one now and wear it all the way through next fall.
