A variation on a common theme, the Lacoste cotton twill Harrington Jacket is back on the shelves in four new colours.
Whether you want it depends on various factors. First off, whether you want the Lacoste ‘Croc’ on your chest. People are funny about logos in both ways, so that’s a huge factor here.
The other issues are the cut and the construction. Price too, but I’ll deal with that one in a moment.
But for those first two points, this is a ‘shirt’ Harrington, although it doesn’t look much shorter than the classic Baracuta version. In terms of the construction, this is made of cotton twill in four colours and with a mesh lining to keep it fairly lightweight.
Other details on the jacket include the classic two-button collar, exterior flap pockets and interior zip pockets and of course, that logo on the chest.
It’s a solid everyday jacket like any Harrington, but the Lacoste cotton twill Harrington Jacket has price on its side compared to Baracuta. You are looking at £230 for the new ones, which compares to just under £300 for a new Baracuta jacket. But that might be money worth spending if you want a logo-free classic.
