The Harrington jacket is quite possibly one of the coolest pieces of clothing ever produced. A spring staple, it is an effortless, timeless and understated piece of outerwear that every man should own – and for good reason.
Online retail mammoth ASOS has rolled out its very own version in time for the upcoming spring/summer season. Made from 100% cotton, this classic shape is now given an affordable price tag.
Most famously sported by FashionBeans most recent style icon, James Dean, the Harrington embodies the rebel without a cause. Fans of the new TV series ‘Suits’ will also have caught a glimpse of the jacket, championed by the impeccably dressed supporting lead actor, Gabriel Macht. His character, Harvey Specter, gives a great example of how the jacket can be partnered with a shirt and shoes for that after-office-hours look, when sipping at the local bar.
Likewise, it is smart enough to be worn in place of a suit blazer, especially as the weather gets warmer and the heating in the office is accidentally left on. The great thing about the Harrington is it also works with t-shirts and trainers. It’s this flexibility that gives it that sought after wardrobe-staple ranking that garments long to be awarded.
There is only really one way to be seen wearing the Harrington; zipped 2/3 of the way up, with the collar jutting open and out so everyone can see the iconic tartan lining. The ASOS Harrington – be assured that you won’t find a more reasonable way to look good.
Looking good isn’t important, it’s everything.
