Suitable attire with a Harrington Jacket & always 'tuck out' a check shirt?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have just bought this cotton navy Harrington cotton jacket:

 

 

700

 

 

 

 

 

 

My question is. what should i Not wear (+ colours to avoid) with this Navy jacket?  

Are Creme cargos, denim jeans, black chinos all suitable? all with dark brown boat shoes

 

- i've noticed this harrington jacket is quite baggy around the midriff/stomach area,

is this the style? as i might tailor it so its tighter in the stomach region and less baggy

 

 

 

Also on a different note, i just bought this long sleeve checked shirt:

 

 

 

700

 

 

 

And am i right in thinking i shouldnt tuck this into the jeans or chinos/cargos im wearing (with a belt)

As from the pictures i've seen online, they all seem to not be tucked in / freely hanging down

What is best for these style checked shirts, tucked in, or not?

Also , what bottoms are most suitable?

 

Thanks for all opinions

There's actually an entire thread called 'Ask a Question, Get an Answer' for these kinds of minor and specific issues.

I have a similar Harrington with which I generally wear a YSL polo T shirt in two shades of blue, the bottom of the polo is darker blue, with a 6 inch wide white hoop across the chest. With that I tend to wear Prince of Wales check Sta Prest in lightish grey and Desert boots on the feet which I balance with a tan belt. It depends what you're happy with really.

 

P.s. I always tuck in my shirts because as dad said, you'll never be a scout with your shirt hanging out!

thanks for the reply mulberry,

 

i think i should have set a poll of 'what do you wear with your harrington' jacket,

 

maybe another time :)

Any polo, any chino is a classic look, favorite casual belt and shoes.

I know i got the jacket from USC for a bargain £18

but im not too keen on how thick the material is, but i cant complain for this price

 

when i ask about tucking in check shirts i dont mean when wearing a jacket too, just the shirt alone

 

 

on the topic of belts, i need a dark brown one to wear with my dark brown boat shoes,

but im not sure which is advised, a dark brown belt with a brass buckle, or a silver buckle? :

 

 

 

 

1000

 

thanks
