New men’s jacket in navy herringbone linen fabric
Margaret Howell has collaborated with Baracuta to reissue the classic G3 jacket. Made in England, the design is based on a vintage 1960’s jacket found in the Baracuta archive. A small garment factory in Manchester, Baracuta became an international name in the 50’s and 60’s when the company’s G9 blouson jacket established an iconic status and became popularly known as the ‘Harrington’ gaining instant recognition when worn
in films starring Elvis Presley, Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra.
‘Some pieces of clothing are always relevant. The Harrington is an example with its styling and function edited to a minimum resulting in a satisfyingly simple
and lasting design. I wore a jacket in the 60’s and still
want to wear one today’.
