I don’t know why but I always associate suede with autumn and winter, perhaps because of the extra warmth it offers. But at the same time, suede isn’t great with snow and rain, so perhaps that’s why it is being offered from the spring onwards.
This is the G9 we all know and love and in the usual modern-day (aka regular) fit. Read on if you want something more affordable with an archive fit, as I have news on that front too.
But for now, let’s focus on this one, which is made of what’s described as a ‘silky soft suede’. Certainly a good looking one, as this is a seriously eye-catching jacket.
Outside of that, you are looking at the Fraser Tartan lining, which is made from a poly-cotton Coolmax material to keep you cool and dry, as well as a two buttoned collar with a fine rib inside, two-way zip closure and fine ribbed cuffs and hem. Finishing things off is the five-point umbrella inspired back vent and a set of buttoned flap pockets at the front plus an internal slip pocket.
The one downside of a premium harrington is a premium price. You are looking at £540 if you want this on your bag right now.
If you want something cheaper, it’s worth checking out the Stuarts Of London Outlet. They currently have the limited edition Baracuta archive fit G9 harrington jacket in both the sand finish and the dark navy finish in most sizes at knockdown prices. In fact, you can pick up either for just £195.
