Jerrold, or Oxford Cloth Button Down as he used to post under, had the Harrington look down to a T. Very traditional but you could not fault it.

Always interesting to look at the backgrounds too when he posted on that same spot on Main Street. Watch the seasons change, empty streets traffic etc.
Agree it was a great blog. I miss it.

What city was he in?
And why did he stop posting pics, seems he was very popular?
I think it is Springfield, Missouri.
He didn't say why he stopped, just that it wasn't his 'official retirement'. But the blog is 'closed' you can't have access to the archives from the homepage.
His Instagram is still active though (oxfordclothbuttondown), but it misses the personal narrative that made the charm of his blog.

I also enjoyed the blog, I seem to recall that he only had the one Barracuta that he found in a thrift store.
He had a nice collection of Shetland wool sweaters, shaggy dogs etc.

I don’t have a winter compatible Harrington. Would a tweed Valstarino do?

No i am afraid, it is really a different jacket (shape, pockets, no zip, knitted collar). A lovely jacket BTW, based on the A1 flight jacket, that would merit a Challenge in his own name.
Well you are allowed to wear your Baracuta indoors Erik, or with knitwear ! You can also layer and wear it under another jacket/coat...
