Color Blocking with Baracuta Blue Label

We love a jacket with a history, especially when it has a cult following. So when we heard the story behind Baracuta’s G9, known to some as the Harrington Jacket, we were quick to jump on the bandwagon. But let’s back up for a second to the late 19th century in Manchester, where it still rains almost every other day. It’s no surprise a city synonymous with downpours became the raincoat manufacture capitol of the world, where Baracuta was born. First producing outerwear for Burberry and Aquascutum, Baracuta began making the original G9 at their factory in 1937. Eventually the business moved to NYC in 1950, but it was the memories of a damp Manchester that continued to drive the brand’s practical and stylish designs.

Favored by the likes of Steve McQueen, the brand’s signature G9 jacket quickly became iconic. Admired by many a British youth movement of the last 50 years, it’s a testament to the design’s timelessness and versatility. For Spring/Summer 2014, Baracuta Blue Label designer Kenichi Kusano embraced this heritage and drew inspiration from England’s nautical powerhouse legacy with the G9-STA 3XDRY jacket. Not only does it have the technical details to keep the wind and rain at bay, including a water-repellent fabric and multiple pockets to protect your things, it features a cool color block design.
