CE, by no means did I mean my uncle was exceptional in wearing a harrington for 50+ years.  He's always dressed about standard NE as possible.

Interesting artilce.  It claims that they spread north, but when I was in college at least, which is the tail end of the heyday mentioned in the article, only southerners seemed to wear them.   Btw, the guy whose pic I posted, I've known since 92'.  He's from NY, or went there for high school, spent about 20 yrs in DC and has lived in NYC the past several years.     Above, CM mentioned pastels, FU pants, and Harrington jackets as not being very northern, but I don't...

No direct matches, LD.  Sorry for the delay.
