BARACUTA X Junya Watanabe COMME des GARçONS   Vintage Fit G4 Jacket

In an environment as volatile as the fashion industry, only a handful of cult classics survived the true tests of taste and time. The BARACUTA G9 Original Harrington Jacket is one of these rare fashion veterans who managed to survive the war, and then, the dotcom crash. Since the brand’s founding in 1930s, it has found its way onto celebrities and pop icons from Elvis in the 40s to Pete Doherty in the new millennium. The iconic jacket has withstood the test of time not just safely in one piece, but many pieces.

Its latest collaboration with Junya Watanabe of Comme des Garcons revamped the cult classic into a Limited Edition Vintage Fit Cotton Gingham G4. This limited blue/white cotton gingham number features white Baracuta logo buttons and is lined with white mesh for a light finish. The waist is adjustable for your favorite fit and has a meshed pocket discreetly fitted into the lining. Whether it’s worn over dress shirts or basic tees, this jacket brings preppy cool back. If you are not convinced yet, cool guys like James Bond (Daniel Craig) have also been seen donning the brand.
