The quality of the Harrington is pretty clearly not
in the same class as Baracuta. The lining, rather than being a dense cotton flannel, is more of a loosely woven acrylic. The shell is 65% poly/ 35% cotton, rather then Baracuta's 100% cotton (with a teflon coating). All that said, I like the way this fits and the quality is perfectly fine for a casual windbreaker. It cost $75 shipped, and the cheapest you can find a comparable Baracuta is about $150 from Modual on the B&S forum. I know there's a cheap deal on Ben Sherman Harringtons from overstock.com, but they only have navy and red and I really wanted cream/beige. I think I like the idea of cheap Harringtons as they're pretty painless to replace and I might want a different color in a year or two. I got the sweat shirt from the Rakuten store "American Clothing Cream,
" and I know that the store "Take Off" also carries this brand. they do cost about $115 plus shipping so it's not a screaming deal. You'll have to spend some time linking and searching through the Rakuten affiliate thread to get the hang of the place and get pages to appear in tranlsated form. The Raken affiliate rep is very helpful via PM. As for the quality, I doubt that it's as good as Buzz Rickson or Loopwheeler, but they fit really well and don't have the short torso/sleeve problem that Buzz has. It might also be worth your while to check out the options from Blue In Green (I almost went for the SDA indigo dyed sweatshirt instead). For a cheap alternative, the Urban Outfitters "Fink" brand is well styled and proportioned and only $38.
