Some garments are so iconic, that it’s almost a crime if we didn’t write this article about them. We’re talking about the ‘Harrington Jacket’, also known as the ‘G9’. You may not know it by name, but you will almost certainly recognise it. We wanted to write about it because it really embodies the kind of garments we as a company, aspire to sell. Rich in history and tradition, it's a fascinated story of how an item of clothing can come to symbolise an attitude and way of life. Throw in several decades of the jacket being worn by some of the coolest actors and musicians, pivotal in major cultural and style genres…..well you’ve got a garment that’s worth talking about....
As a kid, I dreamed of being The Bush Tucker Man. I used to think he had the best job in the world, and now at the age of forty three, I still think that. The adventures of this man are like a portal that still now allow me to climb in, and be transported back thirty years.
