The original design from 1937 and worn by everyone from mods to scooter boys since, This is available in Navy and several other colours. As you'd expect for the price it is the attention to details that makes it stand out. It is made from 100% cotton, boasts the classic check polyester viscose lining, has ribbed nylon cyuffs and a vent on the back. Oi Polloi

I checked an hour or so ago and it appears that the temperature, in the south east at least, is heading for double figures tomorrow. Spring might not be here, but it is certainly on its way. And that means it is time to ditch that heavy wool coat that kept you warm all winter for something a little flexible and lightweight.

And when it comes to stylish casual jackets it doesn’t get much getter than the Harrington. Always associated with the mod movement – they became popular in the late 60s on skin and suede heads and again in the late 70s and early 80s when they were championed by  Jam fans – they are the staple of heritage brands and everyone from Ben Sherman through to Merc has a range.

Last year Damon Albarn seemed to spend most of the spring wearing his navy Fred Perry and there are plenty of other high profile Harrington wearers like Terry Hall and Daniel Craig.

For a classic you need look no further than Baracuta who were pioneers of the jacket back in the 1930s. If you want something with a twist check out the quilted version or the dog tooth one. Purists please note we have included a jacket or two that could be seen as a bomber jacket/Harrington hybrid. But then we make the rules.

Which one do you like? More on their history here.

For a third season Danish designer Peter Jensen and British label Fred Perry are working together on an old staple; the Harrington jacket. Coming in red, black and a very current gingham Jensen is up to standard in his attention to detail with the classic jacket receiving a super-sizing to the pockets and laurel.

The jackets will be available from next year as part of Fred Perry’s SS09 range with a rough launch date of February 09 being pencilled in.

Lyle & Scott Harrington Jacket – complete your superbloke look

By admin on January 17th, 2008

LylescottjacketWith spring coming soon – I hope – It’s
time to start planning your spring outfits. If you’re into the business look,
then you’ll love this Lyle
& Scott Harrington jacket
(£89). Over recent months, Lyle & Scott
has really, really gotten popular. It’s got to the point where you can walk
into a bar and see at least five people sporting the eagle. So if you’re the
kind of person who doesn’t want to wear
brands that are too big, you might want
to give Lyle & Scott a miss.

Still, this jacket matches well with the
Onitsuka Tiger trainers we featured recently and is light and airy enough to wear when spring finally comes along. Best to stick to your winter coats and umbrellas for now though.
