    I loved my black Harringtons I had in the 1990s when they were definitely out of fashion. I'm not sure about now, they kinda of go in and out style with certain sub-cultures.

    I always wanted a donkey jacket but never did buy one...

    They have been back in fashion for a few years. Hipsters, Indie kids and Mod wannabes love 'em.

    Not sure what a Harrington is. If it's the jackets with the big sheepskin collar then the answer is yes.

    Are Monclers out of fashion now?

    Hey you skinhead over there,
    What's it like to have no hair?
    Is it hot or is it cold,
    What's it like to be bald?


    Ironically I now am bald.

    I was walking doon Merkland Road
    Swingin my chain
    Along came an ***ngem**
    I asked him his name;
    I kicked him in the balls
    And I kicked him in the head
    Now that ***ngem**
    He's dead

    The only known Dons song with the correct use of the semi-colon, I always thought. Good work, the ABB 1972.

    The baracuta is an evergreen.

    The ****e versions bought by many fae robert raes not so much. Collar didn't stand up properly and the zips weren't built to last.

    Was a bit of a strange one the Harrington as between say 77 and 80 it was sported by three different youth cultures up here. Mods (revivalist two tone types), Punks and Skinheads.

    Of course the original mods wore them back in the mid 60s as did the hard mods (suedeheads / original skins) in the latter part of the 60s.
