The golf jacket is a versatile item for the more casual days. You can wear it with most anything, but here’s a look that is anything but sub-par.
This is a seriously American look. So, start with the golf jacket. This precise model was the jacket back in the day. Known as the G9 Harrington, this jacket by the England-based brand Baracuta is gorgeous, form-fitting, casual, classic, and comfortable — and reasonably priced. McQueen and Sinatra wore this exact piece, and you should too. So slap it on over a nice cashmere sweater with a collared shirt beneath (leaving the top button unbuttoned — yeah, we didn’t think we had to tell you that), and presto: a perfectly executed casual outfit of fall layering. Chinos ought to do the trick, and just roll with your favorite casual shoe: we’re keen on the canvas 1965 throwback versions of PF Flyers’ Windjammers in white. Try rolling up the chinos a bit to expose some ankle if it’s not too cold. Otherwise, just make sure your pants look nice and slim. Thankfully, Hilfiger has your back(side) in that regard.
