Baracuta‘s G9 Harrington Jacket, an enduring emblem of British style, is now celebrating a remarkable 85 years in the fashion spotlight. Born in the rainy city of Manchester in 1938, just a year after the brand’s inception, this iconic jacket has transcended time, resonating with various subcultures, celebrities, and everyday individuals.

It wasn’t just Rodney Harrington; legendary figures like Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and Steve McQueen all embraced the G9 on and off the screen. In Manchester, the G9 continued its subcultural journey with musicians like The Clash, Paul Weller, and Eric Clapton donning their own G9s. Even in the 1990s during the Britpop era, Liam Gallagher and Damon Albarn, the two faces of the scene, proudly wore their Harringtons.

To mark this milestone, Baracuta took a nostalgic journey back to its roots in Manchester, capturing the essence of what the G9 represents to people of all backgrounds and ages. The result? A cool narrative featuring 13 diverse British figures, each sharing their emotional connections with the Harrington Jacket – a true symbol of Britishness. Their stories, along with previously unseen archival imagery and documents, have been compiled into a special volume dedicated to this iconic garment.

The Limited Edition Baracuta Volume, brimming with personal experiences and memories, reaffirms the G9 Harrington Jacket’s authenticity and unparalleled history. It’s a testament to the enduring legacy of a fashion classic that continues to thrive after 85 years. You can get your hands on this unique piece of fashion history at
