Forever Young: Baracuta G9

A while back we wrote about the Ray-Ban which fills 70 this year. Today we tell about another 70-year-old: Baracuta G9. This is the jacket worn by style icons such as Elvis, Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra, and which then became a typplagg in all the mods.

Baracuta G9, or Harrington jacket, was created in Manchester by John and Isaac Miller, 1937 and 1938, it received permission from the Scottish clan Fraser-using their boxes that feed into the model G9. It is the same pattern that is used even today.

At 50-century begins to sell Baracutan for real in the United States and it will be a real success. 1954 has Elvis wears the jacket in the movie King Creole, which is one of Elvis ‘ better movies.

In the 60 ‘s it was Steve McQueen the great fashion icon and he is one of those who most strongly associated with the jacket. Among other things, he had it on on the cover of Life magazine. For Mods was the jacket is just as important as the parka.

In the 70 and 80 ‘s Jacket was associated with both punk and ska scene. The Clash occurred in, among other things, on Times Square. Now called it for Harrington after the character Rodney Harrington who wore the jacket in the tv soap opera Peyton Place.

Just in time for the 70-year anniversary has Baracuta now released 3 models in the limited edition of the G9. An Elvis-a Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra-variant. Each model is available only in 70 copies. In the back of the feed is a quote from each of these icons printed. In the Steve McQueen version says “I live for myself” and the jacket I am since yesterday a nearly blissful.

Or as I read somewhere-if your dad has one of these, he was once cool.
