In the 1950’s, Isaac Miller started to export Baracuta to the United States and Canada, resulting in Paul Stuart beginning to stock the brand in his New York store and the brand becoming known to a much larger buying market. Another precious moment for Baracuta was the moment when Elvis Presley wore the G9 jacket in the 1958 film King Creole.
The manufacturer of the original Harrington Jacket, Baracuta was formed in 1937 at John and Isaac Miller's factory based in Manchester. Originally commissioned to make rain proof outwear for Aquascutum and Burberry, the brother eventually branched out on their own creating the Baracuta G9 jacket which was created as a waterproof jacket for golf before it subsequently became the trend in the 1950's in the US amongst Ivy League students. As a result, the Baracuta jacket is now a timeless style icon both in the UK and across the pond.
