An interesting new colour for a timeless classic – the Fred Perry Harrington Jacket in white.
Yes, white. Which is a bold choice, but also an eye-catching one if you can pull it off. Actually, the official colour is ‘ecru’, but you get the idea when you see the images on this page.
It’s a jacket usually seen in navy blue and black, far more sensible colours if you are a sensible kind of person. The kind of colours that can take much of what life throws at it – which isn’t the case for a white jacket.
If you are careful, white is a great option. It looks amazing and far more appealing than the dark colours if you want attention. But if you aren’t careful, that whiteness might be a problem and you might end up with something more off-white in no time at all. Basically, it’s down to you.
Of course, there are numerous colours to choose from for a Baracuta jacket with the option of a ‘mist’ shade added this year, which isn’t far off this one. But it’s not as white as there one here – and Baracuta Harringtons cost a lot more than Fred Perry ones.
If you like this one, it is part of the Reissues range, offering the Fred Perry Laurel Wreath logo subtly on the chest, Fred Perry’s own tartan and a slightly different ‘cut’ to Baracuta’s jacket.
Not much though and this one still has button side pockets, the two-button collar and the umbrella vent on the back.
If it appeals, you can get one online now for £199 in all sizes.
