The Harrington Jacket G9
"If you were a young or younger guy back in the mid sixties you wore one of these. I can’t believe they cost so much now. Sheesh. Navy blue and tan were the popular colors. I see they had different models but we always wore the jacket with the stretch cuffs and waistband. All of them had the plaid guts. Very comfortable and a perfect weight too. You could buy them just about anywhere clothing was sold and we never gave it a second thought that they were made in England. I wore these through the mid to late 70’s.
And when you wore it, you always wore it with the collar up. Important.” - Vince of Michigan (Thanks for sharing, Vince!)

British clothing companies Grenfell and Baracuta made the first Harrington style jackets in the 1930s. In fact, Baracuta still make the same model, the G9 which was popularized by Elvis Presley when he wore it in his 1958 movie ‘King Creole’. This particular style of jacket earned the nickname Harrington because the character Rodney Harrington played by Ryan O’Neal in the 1960s soap opera ‘Peyton Place’ wore it. - Daniel Riding of Men’s Fashion Magazine - Via: 1 | 2
