Haven't bought a jacket in many years, so I'm considering purchasing one. Don't really have a budget in mind. Just want something that looks nice and good quality. Have recommendations?

I like Harrington jackets, mine is the "Weatherbreaker" from Orvis which runs $170. You can get much nicer (and pricier) ones, like the Baracuta G9.

Harringtons are a good spring or early autumn jacket, but offer no real utility outside of those seasons as they are a bit too light. Ideal Harrington weather is 55 - 70 F.

You can also go with a sport coat for something more elevated, or a chore or barn coat for something a little more rugged and casual.

Thanks! I've never heard of these types of jackets, though I don't really know my jackets. I've typically just stuck with traditional brands like north face, colombia. Are these ones you mentioend higher end than brands like northface?
