Baracuta is part of the roots here at Stuarts London. From when our store first opened in 67’, we have stocked the iconic jackets that have been pivotal within the fashion, film and media industries since their inception. Baracuta is instantly recognisable for it’s silhouette, eye-catching tartan and it’s fit. It all started in 1937, this is when two brothers John and Isaac Miller set out to create a golfers jacket. However, the actual foundations for the Baracuta brand was formed in 1912 by the Miller family in Manchester - known for their rain jackets. The brothers wanted to create a jacket that would give golfers freedom of movement whilst taking their swing.
What are the most legendary pieces of menswear? Items that changed the game forever. The Barbour Wax Jacket might come to mind. The Belstaff Trialmaster, the Burberry Trench coat, the Schott Perfecto leather jacket, Levis 501, and Clarks Desert Boots. But, the list would not be complete without the Baracuta Harrington jacket.
