The typical Harrington jacket: the G9 Baracuta. Over the years, this iconic garment has made a name for itself and has become popular for its versatility, classic and timeless style. Worn and loved by some of the most remarkable gentlemen in recent history. A true style icon. Made of water-repellent cotton/polyester with breathable Fraser tartan lining in Coolmax® cotton/polyester. The classic Baracuta collar with zipper and two buttons. Front pockets with button panel and "embossed" back slit that drains rain.
At the end of the 19th century the textile industry boomed in Manchester - thanks to the new ship canal, which connected the city to the sea starting in 1894. In 1937, one of Baracuta's most famous models, the G9 bomber jacket, also known as the Harrington Jacket, was created. The following year, the jacket was given the detail that still provides it with its distinctive charm to this day - the tartan lining in Fraser tartan.
This charm has also been the inspiration for many celebrities since Baracuta was founded. The 1974 English World Cup team is wearing the jackets, and icons such as Elvis Presley, Steve McQueen, Frank Sinatra, David Beckham, Daniel Craig and Robert Downey Junior are among the label's fans.
