Re-issues: The Harrington Jacket
Tuesday, 21st Aug 2012
We recently launched a small selection of Re-issues online and in our Laurel Wreath Collection shops, celebrating some of the most iconic styles from our 60 years of streetwear heritage. A key piece from this collection is the Harrington jacket - a timeless outerwear style lined with red Stewart tartan and still made in the United Kingdom to this day.
Taking its name from the character Rodney Harrington from 60s US drama Peyton Place, the Harrington jacket has been adopted throughout the decades by stylish men ranging from Steve McQueen to Blur's Damon Albarn. The Re-issues Harrington Jacket is available in traditional black and navy colour options, and features a two button funnel neck, buttoned pockets and a zip down front. The jacket has a classic fit, with elasticised cuffs and hem offering a smart, streamlined look.
It's the attention to detail that makes this jacket so special - hidden zip pockets sit on the inner lining and pocket flaps can be turned inwards to expose a flash of the tartan trim. Each zip pull is engraved with our signature Laurel Wreath, buttons are branded and the back neck label inspired by archive designs.
