It was the preferred outerwear for the likes of Frank Sinatra and Steve McQueen, the Manchester-based BARACUTA still retains much of that prominence some 50 years later to a new generation of trend setters.  Recently, Japanese retail giant BEAMS launched a new rejection of the classic BARACUTA G9 Jacket for Spring 2009 Season.  Though the appearance of the jacket remain much of the same as other BEAMS x BARACUTA collaboration in the past.  The new BEAMS x BARACUTA G9 Jacket features 2 unique exceptions.  One, its shell is fabricated from a Teflon processed fabric by hi-tech Italian mill Olmetex.  Second, unlike other BARACUTA, the Fraser tartan plaid lining in this special edition is made out mesh.  A great element to aid the dissipation of body heat during the warmer Spring climate.  Retails for JP¥ 40,950 (~US$ 460), the BEAMS x BARACUTA G9 Jacket for Spring 2009 is available in colors tan, navy & black.  Quantities are  limited at  BEAMS+ retail locations and over at ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
