The Blouson or Harrington (as known by some) was made famous by the Mods of the 60’s. Teamed with an oxford button down and 501s – this jacket was the quintessential uniform for youth. Nowadays it is worn by those young and old, regardless of clan or tribe. Here we pay homage to the many variations that have been created overtime – timeless in every sense of the word.
