I’ve been a devotee of the Harrington golf jacket since seeing James Dean rock his signature red version in Rebel Without a Cause—and was nothing short of thrilled when I finally tracked down a Baracuta G9 “slim-fit” reissue in that color a few years back. It’s a staple in my spring and summer arsenal; and now I’m considering adding this take by Fred Perry/Raf Simons to the rotation. As you might expect from that heavyweight tag team, it pairs the Harrington’s classic details (zip front, double-button collar tab, “kangaroo” side pockets) with a trim, modern fit (higher armholes, a narrower sleeve) and a Raf-ishly monochromatic color palette—in this case, bright white. In other words, you’ll be looking crisply classic and standing out from the pack at the same time.
