First designed in 1937 in pre-war Manchester, the Baracuta G9 Harrington jacket has a wealth of history and was one of the first Harrington Jackers ever made. The Baracuta G9 was first made popular by Elvis Presley as he wore in it in his 1958 movie King Creole. It got the name 'Harrington' as it was worn by the character Rodney Harrington (played by Ryan O'Neal) in the 1960s prime time soap opera Peyton Place. The G9 was made more famous by Steve McQueen in the 1968 movie The Thomas Crown Affair. Having appeared on the cover of Life magazine in a G9, Hollywood’s King of Cool became synonymous with the Baracuta Harrington. Often copied, but never bettered, the Baracuta G9 is still Hand Made In England.
