TAD Puts A Tactical DWR Spin On The Iconic Harrington Jacket

Nov 22, 2019

Category: Gear

Originating from Depression-era England and popularized by Hollywood icons like Frank Sinatra, James Dean, and Steve McQueen, the Harrington jacket has been a men’s clothing staple for the better part of a century. The timeless piece of outerwear has just been given a modern update by Triple Aught Design, who have bestowed the traditional garment with their signature military-inspired tactical treatment to deliver the all-new Vanguard ST jacket.

Boasting a standard fit, the Vanguard ST features a DWR-finished NYCO (half nylon, half cotton) Sateen Twill shell paired with a comfortable poly-cotton sheeting lining on the interior of the jacket and pockets. Button-up collar and cuffs with dual shanks ensure a snug fit for when the temperature drops and the wind picks up. Darts at the elbows mitigate a limited range of movement while triple-needle stitching around the yoke and shoulder seams make for a durable jacket that’s built to last. Designed and manufactured in America, the Vanguard ST packs a #5 metal YKK main zipper and two surprisingly large yet discreet, ergonomically-angled pockets that enable quick and easy access to bulkier EDC items without compromising the Harrington jacket’s classic silhouette. There’s also another pair of larger, angled, zippered pockets. Priced at $220, the TAD Vanguard ST is offered in two colors (Raven and Phantom) and is slated to ship out on December 2, 2019.

Purchase: $220
