Call it a blouson or simply: Baracuta G9
What is behind the cryptic name Baracuta G9? A lightweight blouson, a transitional jacket, a top with a specific lining or a windproof top with a typical stand-up collar? Everything! Because the jacket that has become known as the Harrington Jacket stands for well thought-out details from the Baracuta brand. They make up the sporty look, the unique feeling and the casual charm of these jackets.
Also because the Baracuta jacket is associated with style icons such as James Dean, Steve McQueen or Daniel Craig, it is impossible to imagine the fashion world without the brand: even the film Rodney Harrington features the Baracuta! Ralph Lauren, himself a world-class designer, is also part of the fan club.
To be specific: Baracuta jackets were designed in 1940 by the Miller brothers for the Manchester Golf Club for golfing counts. The sports jacket with "G" stood for golf, "9" for the holes on the golf course.
And today? The Baracuta G9 is still characterised by freedom of movement and elegance. Let Harrington in Oldenburg inspire you on site or online! Baracuta is the original - other labels such as Ben Sherman are also inspired by it.
Baracuta promises English textile skills at their best
It is not without reason that accessories or garments become icons. Some fashion pieces are associated with people like Jacky Kennedy. But behind them are manufacturers who focus exclusively on craftsmanship and high quality. Quality that feels great and is durable. Optics that convince with timeless elegance and nonchalance. With Baracuta, it's also details like closable, slanted outer pockets.
Baracuta falls back on traditional craftsmanship. In what way?
In the late 19th century, Manchester was the centre of a booming textile industry. Connected to the sea via a ship canal from 1894, the finest fabrics could be delivered here and then processed. A few decades later, in 1937, was the birth of the Baracuta G9 Original Harrington. There are many reasons why this jacket became an icon.
One reason is the lining, also called the tartan pattern, which has been typical of Baracuta jackets since 1940. This is how you recognise great style and perfect comfort in a transitional jacket. That's why a G9 Harrington Jacket can't be pinned down!
Do you wear it for everyday wear or for leisure? Do you take it to the seaside on holiday, do you love it when you go golfing or to the jazz club? Find out the answer for yourself.
We think: A Classic Harrington does everything and cuts a perfect figure everywhere!
Fraser Tartan: outstanding quality
Is it the bright colours or is it the centuries-old, characteristic tartan pattern, which originated in Scotland and was originally used for traditional woollen clothing? At that time, by the way, the colours were produced from roots and berries, hence their brilliance.
The thread and colours of the Fraser Tartan have been given the name "Sett" in the fashion world because of their beauty. This is how you can immediately recognise a genuine Harrington jacket!
