Baracuta Jackets

 

Ever since its introduction, the Baracuta jackets have been one of the greatest enrichments for the menswear fashion world - and they remain to be exactly that even today. The classic G9 jacket is the one and only original Harrington jacket. Often copied in the course of time, but never quite reached or bettered. Since 1937, the traditional British clothing company supplies jackets for Icons and legends like Steve McQueen, Elvis and Sinatra. The G9 remains popular in modern pop culture as well, as we see Liam Gallagher and Daniel Craig. The jacket’s history can be traced from the very beginning to modern times, revealing its timeless character and that it has not lost it aesthetic appeal.

Baracuta’s founders and brothers John and Isaac Miller produced the very first G9 jacket in 1937. In 1938 the two brothers were granted the right to use the now iconic Fraser tartan for the inner linings - a detail that can still be found today. The G9 jacket gained its ongoing popularity through its incredible versatility and functionality. The jacket treads a fine line between formal and casual without ever being exclusively either. It’s functionality introduced the jacket to the sports world, where it found high resonance with golfers, who praised its ventilation and aesthetics. Other details like elastic sleeves and the combination of front zipper and collar buttons made this jacket the perfect choice for various situations, including the daily city life and Sunday walks in the countryside.
