We have been planning this for some time. The team here are ‘nuts' about Harrington Jackets - a style the dates back to the 1930’s.
The list of notables associated with the Harrington Style include: Elvis Presley, James Dean, Frank Sinatra and more recently Daniel Craig/James Bond.
Here in England the Harrington was part of a big youth culture upsurge in the 1960’s with the Mod’s and Scooter Boys. In complete contrast to their bitter rivals the ‘Rocker’ motorcycle gangs in their leathers, mods really cared about how they dressed. Quality was important, styling was king…they had extremely fine and exacting tastes.
The Harrington also became synonymous with Golfing. Not just to look good on the course, but for it’s supreme practicality. It could keep off a shower, keep out the breeze, and be just flung over the golf trolley or tied round the neck and be treated quite roughly, yet look just as good in the club house afterwards.
The Bookster London Harrington Jacket is made from Pure Wool Worsted Cloth that is lightweight and breathable, with a fabulous ‘feel' and naturally crease resistant.
This first offering is in two patterns only. They are limited editions and once they are gone they will be superseded by different colours and patterns. They are in stock and can be with you in just a few days. Perfect for Spring and Summer.
