Not for want of trying have I endured an entire summer searching for a new jacket, not even a particularly unusual one. Just a harrington which wasn't really a harrington but looked like the best harrington you could ever find. In black. Navy at a push.
Closest I got was a Resonate swingtop jacket which the Japanese people it was designed for would have had a job putting on. In the end I settled on a Dunhill blouson. Looked great, offered no protection from the elements, so it hasn't been worn.
Aaand we're up to date. The summer's as good as over and what do you know? Along comes the Baracuta X Junya Watanabe Limited Edition Vintage Fit G4, which as far as my requirements go, fits the bill in every way. Except it's too late. Way too late.
