Founded in 1937 in Machester, UK to its international debut it takes not much more than 10 years for Baracuta to become an international regarded legend. In 1950 Baracuta started exporting into the USA and was soon seen worn by some of the most iconic celebrities. in 1954 Elvis Presley wears a G9 in the movie King Creole, 1963 Steve McQueeen wore the G9 in his personal life and several movies, most famously in the Thomas Crown Affair. Followed by Frank Sinatra, Muhammad Ali and The Clash the list may be completed in our days by Franz Ferdinand and Daniel Craig.
The Baracuta G9 lined with the famous Fraser Tartan is the perfect fuse between formal and casual. For now more than 80 years the water repellent G9 with its distinctive back yoke is a contemporary, high regarded style icon!
