So what are the things to keep in mind regarding the fit of a Harrington jacket?

  • Make sure that your pick is symmetric and proportionate.

Make sure your shoulders align.

  • The outfit designed in a slim fit style.
  • The elastic hem at the cuffs of the sleeves and the waist fall in place.
  • The elastic should cover the belt area of your pants and the sleeves must cover your arms and reach your wrists.
  • The Harrington jacket has an inner and outer lining. The outer lining should be a blend of cotton and water and wind resistant fabric.
  • Classic Harrington’s are always in cotton, however many designers have also experimented with wool, corduroy, suede and leather. I personally prefer cotton.
