Looking for a lightweight water/windproof shell.

Quite like the look of this Torrentshell pullover


Anything else caught anyone's eye lately?

Yeah it's nice but not for that money and I dunno about their technical credentials.

What's my best bet to pick up a moleskin chore? Ebay? Don't actually care if it's a vintage french deal, just fancy a moleskin jacket for spring / summer

eBay, vintage fairs, vintage shops, maybe even Urban Outfitters (don't know if they still have their 'vintage' sections?)

Are there any good harrington jackets this season, or can you get no better than the new Baracutas

Baracuta is probably best if it's the Made in England ones.

That's nice. 400 quid though on a rain jacket I'd be best off saving for a winter coat.

This looks good for a harrington other than the logo, I was thinking of maybe de-badging one.

^Muji had a harrington too in navy/black and khaki, but I saw that a couple of months ago, might be worth a look but its not on their site.

Muji seemed to have massively jacked their clothing prices last time I was in

Saw this in the reals yesterday, and it pretty on point for the price. Pics don't do it justice at all.

Wasn't Pretty Green about £80 a Tshirt a while ago (lot cheaper now)? Glad they have seen sense for those that like this sort of thing.

Looking at the prices on their website still seems really expensive for what it is, odd that the harrington is so cheap.

After lightweight seersucker / striped chore jacket or coat. Something like Stylistics is wearing here. Anyone know what it is?
