The Harrington jacket

As worn by the King of Rock'n'Roll himself, Elvis, the Harrington Jacket is a go-to in terms of style and comfort. The blouson shape means you can layer it over your everyday gear without feeling restricted. Keep it casual in your downtime by teaming your Harrington Jacket with a smart polo shirt and skinny or slim fit jeans. Or take a tip from James Dean who wore a Harrington Jacket in the classic film, Rebel Without A Cause. Style your Harrington jacket with washed denim jeans and plain white tee. You could even keep it sharp in plain grey trousers, an Oxford shirt and brogues. Adopt your own Harrington style and use it to cover up on those chilly days.

The short jacket

Don't worry about the variations of the short jacket. As long as you stick to a boxy silhouette or a bomber, you'll be able to wear it now or on those warmer winter days. Choose a muted shade such as black, burgundy, navy or stone so it goes with just about anything in your wardrobe. For extra protection, chose a shower resistant collared jacket and don't let the drizzle get you down.

The denim jacket
