Fred Perry Madras check Harrington

by Modculture 30 March, 2011

We featured a fairly standard check Harrington from Baracuta yesterday, but this Fred Perry lightweight Madras check Harrington jacket certainly takes things a step further.

Part of the Laurel collection and designed with summer in mind, this bold 'shirt jacket' (as it is referred to) has a twin-button collar, single-button cuff, a zip front and two waist pockets, finished off with the Fred Perry Laurel logo.

Made in England from the Italian Cotonificio Albini fabric (so dry clean only), it sells for £180 online.

Mod Chicago 9 weekender

by Modculture 30 March, 2011

If you happen to be on the other side of the Atlantic, ideally in the Chicago area, you might want to check out the Mod Chicago 9 weekender.

It takes place over 10th and 11th June, described as 'A Case Study In Mod, Soul, Garage, Freakbeat and Psych'. So R&B purists might not necessarily want to apply.

See the listing on the site for more details, plus details of how to download a free album of tunes you might hear over the weekend.
