Baracuta Jackets are one of Britain’s greatest contributions to menswear. The G9 is THE original harrington jacket, much copied but the definitive is only made by Baracuta. We've been dressing icons & lengends in our G9 jacket since 1937, from McQueen, Elvis & Sinatra to Liam Gallagher and Daniel Craig.
The first-ever harrington jacket was created by Baracuta founders and brothers, John & Isaac Miller in 1937. In 1938 the brothers were given permission by the Fraser Clan chief, the 24th Lord Lovat at Beaufort Castle to use the, now iconic, Fraser Tartan in the lining. The G9 earned the nickname Harrington because it was worn by the character Rodney Harrington (played by Ryan ONeal) in the 1960s television programme Peyton Place.
Today, the G9 Original Harrington Jacket is still made to the exact same measurements & is still lined with the iconic Original Fraser Tartan.Baracuta continues dressing icons & legends, and has strong links in the music industry with Liam Gallagher, Blur stars Damon Albarn & Graham Coxon, Razorlight, Jamie T and Pete Doherty all donning the famous G9 Harrington Jacket in recent times.
