First introduced in Britain way back in the '30s, the Harrington jacket has been championed by everyone from Elvis to '60s mods. An everlasting menswear staple, why not don a checked iteration of the silhouette to stylishly navigate FW18 in? This one comes in a red, navy and camel combo and will look extra steezy when paired with a cozy knit and slim-fit dark-wash jeans.
