Baracuta

from golf to fashion legend

The Harrington jacket, or Baracuta G9 is an iconic garment that was designed for golfers but worn by many others.  Two brothers, the Millers, founded the Baracuta label in 1937 in Manchester, England, specializing in the manufacture of raincoats and outerwear.  They first exported the G9 in the 1950s when Elvis donned it in a film, eventually followed by Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra in later years.

  In 1981 The Clash wore Baracuta jackets a their famous Times Square concert. 

Often copied but never bettered, the G9 is the definitive, authentic Harrington jacket.  Worn and loved throughout history by mainstream artists, sports stars and underground music idols, it is known and appreciated for its versatility and undisputed style.

Worship side

Imitated but never equaled, the G9 is the quintessential Harrington jacket.

Originally in 1937, two designers and accomplished golfers at Baracuta created this sporty jacket and called it G9, G for Golf and 9 for the evolution of the design.

English gentlemen go out whatever the weather and choose a jacket that looks smart, formal and also practical.

 

During the 1950s, the Harrington conquers New York, and is found on the dance floor and the football stadium alike. It is adopted by all the Playboys, the WASPS of the Ivy League, Elvis, Sinatra and Steve McQueen among them. It becomes famous worldwide.

It owes its name to Rodney Harrington, a character (played by Ryan O’Neal) in the highly successful US television series of the 60s, “Peyton Place”.
The cult of the “Harrington” is born, succeeded by countless imitations.
Thanks to the series being shown on British television in the 60s, the jacket knows a dazzling success in the United Kingdom.
Hugely popular among most of the British youth movements since then, from mods to punks, this golf jacket has become the signature wear of the British rock star.

Simple and versatile, unmistakable with its 13th century Fraser tartan, it gives class a touch of rock glamour.
In underground culture, the Harrington is often worn with a Fred Perry polo shirt or a Ben Sherman shirt.
