The first and the best mod Harrington jacket. Other seasonal highlight styles like suede and leather G9's and other designs may be made in Italy or other locations, but still from the best premium fabrics and with the same level of detail and expertise.

The lining is tartan on the upper back side, and solid color on everything else, no umbrella on the back. The lining is a bit rough compared to the Baracuta maybe it needs few wears in break-in period and the shell is a little stiff.
The fit is slim and modern compared to the 80's vibe roomy and baggy Baracuta, especially on the sleeves. This jacket is good enough for the price, a good addition for my light jacket collection.
I looked at them both over the weekend, and thought the Uniqlo U Harrington jacket felt heavier and more substantial. Traditional harringtons have a little umbrella-shaped flap on the back so that water slicks off.
Haha, I have no idea. It's definitely not standard for harringtons--that jacket was just the first picture that I found on Google Images which showed the back flap. Probably a cycling jacket - the pocket like cycling shirts is there as it's easy to access whilst pedaling. There's isn't a pocket there. It's just an extra layer on the back shoulder area of the jacket.
Literally just got this jacket as well. The washing instructions say to dry clean and not to soak it. What detrimental effects would washing it at home have? It would definitely be a loss of waterproofing. I have a few waterproof items that require a specific waterproof cleaner should I wash it normally gentle cycle. If you leave it to dry in the sun, it'll most likely fade. Idk exactly but, the jacket comes with a tag "durable water repellency" and said it has some kind of coating on it.
It'll wear off eventually but you can buy spray to reapply it. It's the same as the stuff you spray on shoes to prevent them from getting stained. Hated the material and the cut for this, the U has better constructions but still didn't like the cut. Sticking with the Baracuta.
I like the cut but I'm with you on the material. The elastic bands especially seem like they'll wear out pretty quick and end up looking tatty. Pretty off-topic, but where do you thrift stuff in SG? I live in the neighbor country, Indonesia. I got it on secondhand site online, Indonesian version of grailed. Anything polyester other than a puffy jacket really defeats the point of being fashionable for me, the material isn't healthy or breathable in a lot of climates for that kinda price range i wanna see some leather or cotton.
I see it is a seasonal jacket but unless you live in a very cold climate i don't see this being very practical esp for the price but i respect and appreciate your feedback. I live in tropical country BTW. I just imagine melting in polyester in Australian climate, think i would dry out faster than an egg in the sun. Ben Sherman is definitely my go to brand but i have the wrong body shape for a lot this stuff. How can I wear a khaki Harrington without feeling old?
I'm 21 and I feel like its an older peace. I ordered this a week or two ago when it was on weekly promo. When it arrived I hated it. Very shiny, felt like it could rip very easily, sleeves were too long and overall fit weird. Returned it as fast as I could. Maybe the U version is nicer? Would have been better to just scratch it out in a solid color than clone your neck up higher.
Looks real bizarre, took a moment for me to figure out what happened to your head. My only gripe is that there is pilling on the cuffs after only one wash. I found it a pretty non-traditional harrington but liked it as a more modern alternative. Their buttondown shirts tend to be a bit boxy but long.
