A regular in the summer months, albeit tweaked each year. This time it is the Lacoste water-repellent Harrington jacket.
Which it often is. Lacoste generally uses a lightweight twill fabric for its Harringtons, and this year is no exception. Offering the jacket in three colour options in that particular fabric.
The difference tends to be the style of the Harrington jacket. Not that they call it a Harrington. Lacoste just calls it a light twill jacket. But it is pretty obvious what we are dealing with here.
This is Lacoste’s take on that iconic warmer weather jacket, with the zip front, a two-button collar, and buttoned side pockets. The difference, construction/material aside, is the finish.
The lining here is Lacoste’s check fabric, with two inside pockets thrown in for good measure. Of course, there is the Lacoste Crocodile logo too, which will either make it or break it, depending on your view of this particular label. I’m a fan, by the way. A single seam across the back, too, rather than the umbrella yoke often seen on jackets by Baracuta, Fred Perry and others.
If all of that ticks a box for you, then it’s down to picking the colour you like out of the three available and the size, with pretty much everyone covered on that front.
Price? This is a new arrival, selling for £220.
