The first Harrington-style jackets were made in the 1930s Elvis Presley popularized the style in his 1958 movie King Creole.
The jacket got the nickname "Harrington" from a character in the 1960s prime time soap opera, Peyton Place. The character in question, Rodney Harrington, (played by Ryan O'Neal) is often depicted in a Harrington jacket.
Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra were photographed wearing Harrington-style jackets in films and their personal lives.
The jacket became fashionable in the United Kingdom in the 1960s among mods and skinheads.They enjoyed a resurgence in the late 1970s and early 1980s with skinhead and mod revivalists, as well as old and new fans of Northern soul and scooterboys.
