The real Harrington® jacket
A brand that crosses the generations. The small black jacket with a tartan lining appeared for the first time in the 60's in the famous US series 'Peyton Place'.
|The main actor Ryan O'Neal, who plays Rodney Harrington, wore this jacket in most episodes. At the time, it became the identifying mark of young members of the high society.|
|Later, the british Rock'n'roll movement rediscovered the Harrington jacket, and it became an iconic symbol of the Mods! These active urban youths were characterized by a festive lifestyle: they rode scooters, and were very style orientated and enjoyed music and dance.|
|The tartan signature lined garment has attracted many personalities through the generations: Steve McQueen, and Elvis Presley wore the Harrington Jacket, and later Noel and Liam Gallagher from Oasis and the actor Daniel Craig.|
|It's impossible not to recognize the Harrington jacket today at first sight with its tartan lining: this jacket is now a retro inspired wardrobe must-have.|
|Today, Harrington® is a registered trademark with its own eshop (www.harrington.fr/en/). The brand offers to shops and shops men's, women's and kids collections, with an absolutely English style but especially totally offbeat.|
