Meet the Gustin Harrington. Honoring the timeless roots of an iconic style while dialing in the details for today. Classic to the core, our Harrington retains the clean and beautiful lines that have allowed a jacket born in the 1930’s to look thoroughly modern today. Adding in a true focus on fit and beautiful materials makes our Harrington a jacket you’ll look perfect in for years. We’re extremely excited to launch with an all-American version from fabric to construction at tremendous value.
Gustin Harrington made from cotton duck canvas woven by one of the finest mills in the USA. If you’ve followed our recent Field Jacket launch, then you know how much we love this canvas. We run styles in a huge variety of materials, but picking the right fabric for launch usually steers us back to our roots. That means something utterly classic and high quality at a serious value. This all-American canvas does everything so well and ultimately makes for likely the most versatile version of our Harrington you could hope for. At 12 ounces, you instantly feel the durability of this material. It's substantial. The beefy yarns give the plain weave more texture and depth. The ruggedness of this fabric is a nice style balance to the clean lines of this classic jacket. We leave the fabric raw so that it retains a deeply saturated color and nice formality. Almost as important as the body material in this jacket is the rib used on the cuffs and hem. We use a super beefy version with nicely defined lines that we custom dye for each jacket color. This is the perfect medium grey, not too dark, not too light. In raw form it takes on a nice metallic look.
On a truly classic style like the Harrington, updating fit and dialing in construction details are the key to honoring the style. You’ll notice the care and attention to detail throughout this jacket. The silhouette defining features of this style start with a wide stand collar secured by two custom Corozo buttons. The collar flows cleanly into raglan sleeves that create a smooth shoulder fit and nice ease of movement. A clean body is punctuated only by slant flap pockets and super thick elastic rib that helps draw in the waist. This rib also finishes each cuff. While some Harringtons are a bit boxy, we made ours nicely fitted. A YKK zipper handles closing duty on the body. Of course, you can’t have a great Harrington without the intricately constructed umbrella edge, vented back. This detail is functional and creates a beautiful shape that defines the back of the jacket. A proper lining is a must for a Harrington. While tartans are traditional, our first love is really chambray. We use a bright, grainy indigo version that adds a pop of color to the inside of the jacket. Finally an inside chest pocket gives you more storage for a phone or wallet.
Jackets like ours that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced much higher. The efficiency of the Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
