Borrowed From the Boys: April Showers

A Classic Harrington Jacket, Now In His And Hers

I can honestly say last week marked the first time I actually prayed for rain.

Normally, I wouldn’t hope for dreary weather, but on this day, the threat of April showers meant I would get to break out my new Baracuta G9 jacket.

Also known as a Harrington jacket, Baracuta’s lightweight coat was catapulted to “icon” status when menswear legend, and all-around cool guy Steve McQueen took to wearing one. Now, the British brand has birthed its twin sister – the same great jacket – water repellent and tartan-lined – but with an updated silhouette adapted for the *ahem* female figure.

 Tell me:

What’s your go-to rainy day gear?

…And how much am I totally channeling Steve McQueen in these pictures? Like, a lot, right? I know. It’s great.

Also! I have a sticky coding issue I’m currently trying to deal with…ineptly, as you can imagine. If any of my dear, kind, generous, patient readers are developers or have ninja coding skills and an extra hour to spare, could you get in touch? You can email me at [email protected], and I’ll give you the low down. I’d be so super-crazy grateful. Thanks!!
