Harrington Jacket for Teen Boys. What’s a Harrington jacket and who are the celebrities who wear it? A Harrington is a waist-length jacket introduced to the fashion world by our British friends (particularly two clothing companies Grenfell and Baracuta) back in the 1930s. Baracuta still continues to make Harrington jackets but other more popular fashion brands such as Lacoste, YSL, and Ralph Lauren have included Harrington jackets in their clothing line.
Elvis Presley reported wore a Harrington jacket made by Baracuta in his movie King Creole. The jacket is called Harrington after a TV character, Peyton Place’s Rodney Harrington, which was played by Ryan O’Neal.
Two current celebrities spotted wearing Harrington jackets are Justin Bieber, Harry Shum, and Robert Pattinson. Check out their outfits below:
