Trim fit non-Harrington spring/fall jacket

Hi all,

I'm looking for a trim-fit light jacket with clean lines for spring/fall, basically a golf jacket style, with a shirt-type collar (not stand-up) and a straight hem at the bottom - no ribbing or elastic - in a decent fabric. Everyone seems to be doing Harrington-style jackets lately, and the rib trim just doesn't work well with my build - tends to bunch up and blouse out when zipped up. Most of the garden-variety old man golf jackets are the opposite of trim fit. Any pointers appreciated.

Thanks,
Hal

I was about to suggest a cotton canvas style A-2 bomber jacket that I saw in a Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue lately but I think from memory they have a knitted elasticated waist too like a Harrington.

Have you looked at the Baracuta G4? I recently got one in dark navy - it's like a G9 Harrington, but without the elasticized cuffs and hem.

I'd considered it, but two things made me hesitate - I'm not a big fan of the Harrington-style collar, and the size guide at Oi Polloi led me to believe that it would be too long - I'm a short dude.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
