The Original Harrington Jacket
Baracuta has its origins as a producer of rainwear. In 1937, the Miller brothers developed a lightweight, weatherproof jacket with knitted cuffs. This jacket has become a style icon and is still manufactured today – only changed in details – by Baracuta in England.
The G9 Harrington jacket convinces with the classic look combined with functionality. Designed for the changeable English weather, the lumber protects against rain and wind, but at the same time is extremely lightweight and provides a comfortable body temperature thanks to Coolmax lining. It can be combined in a variety of ways and is therefore the perfect companion on trips, when not too much luggage may arise.
Few garments have been worn in as many different subcultures as the G9 – from mods to punks to elite students and many celebrities. In the 1950s, Baracuta exported the G9 to the USA for the first time. There it enjoyed great popularity – not least as a lightweight alternative to the similarly cut bomber jackets of the Second World War. The jacket owes its name to the character Rodney Harrington, played by Ryan O'Neal, from the series «Peyton Place».
