    Ralph Lauren jacket advice please?

    Hi all,

    Looking at picking up a jacket. Itís between their Bayport and Twill Mockneck.

    Anyone with any experience of them? Worried the Bayport will be too lightweight being unlined but prefer the Ďtraditionalí collar.

    Cheers

    Mockneck for me. I have the quilted Barracuda with the same collar and much prefer it with a t shirt or a shirt

    Barracuda not on the website, perhaps the mockneck has replaced it?

    Why RL particularly? The Harrington style is widely available across most brands so look further afield.

    Gant do traditional Harrington styles. Farah? Hackett? A quick google search pulls up thousands.

    Before the lock down I replaced my ageing Gant Harrington jacket,wanted a RL but the material felt cheap and nasty.Went for another Gant.

    It seems that they are one in the same, sold in some places as the Barracuda range and some as the Mock Neck

    I like the flat collar much better than the wing collar personally, especially over a polo shirt/shirt with a different shaped collar.....

    I didnít realise RL called their Harringtons Barracuda.

    Aquascutum always used to make fantastic Harringtonís but their recent stuff is absolutely gash from a quality perspective.

    Bet youíd get a vintage one for peanuts on eBay.

    You could have a look at the version from Community Clothing

    https://communityclothing.co.uk/coll...=6978723348534

    Full disclosure: I don't own one but I've got the raincoat and the peacoat and I am happy with both.

    That is a really good price for a British made jacket. I may be getting one of those once my current jacket is end of life. I like the look of their peacoat too.

    Carhartt Modular jacket

    Carhartt really lost their way when they became Carhartt WIP in the UK/Europe. The quality is awful now.

    I still buy their jeans as they're cheap and I haven't found a new brand/cut I like yet but I'd rather buy the Ralph or even just spend big money on Sunspel instead. I'd probably choose Blue Harbour over Carhartt for that jacket.

    Why bother with the pretenders?
    Jus get yourself the real Harrington a baracuta g9.

    You wonít regret it, and support a UK fashion brand.

    Had mine for about 10 years or so and i still wear for days/nights out, when the weathwr permits!

    I do like the look of the community ones and the material they use should be excellent too. A fraction of the price and look excellent value to be honest.
