Looking for a new jacket? Think Steve McQueen for example and you probably think of the actor in a button-down with his Harrington collar up. Of course, it has also been a mainstay of the ivy league and the mod scene for decades, as well as simply being a great all-round jacket with a name coined by that London clothing legend John Simons. Labels are wise to its enduring appeal, which is why there are so many jackets in the Harrington style out there right now. So with that in mind, I have pulled together 10 of the best classic Harrington Jackets, which will hopefully feature something that catches your eye or works with your budget. The first Harrington Jackets were actually made in the s — and Baracuta was the company behind them although Grenfell might want to discuss that issue.

In the past we have featured overcoats , cardigans and most recently the blazer. The name was popularised by John Simons, the menswear retailer who is credited with bringing the Ivy League look to London. They still stock the jacket today. Based on that, it seems impossible to prove who actually invented it first, unless archival pictures of garments with dates are revealed. The fact that they made their name in rainwear and that the Miller brothers aspired to be accomplished golfers played a large role in the design of the Harrington jacket.
