The G9

Advocates of the Baracuta G9 point to its sheer versatility. It treads a fine line between formal and casual without ever being exclusively either. It was popular initially with golfers due to the ‘umbrella’ effect on the rear of the jacket. It is designed to conduct rain away from the wearer, doing so efficiently without compromising its appearance.
There’s also an element of ventilation in the design which makes it ideal for sport. When Arnold Palmer wore a G9 to compete at St Andrews, it perfectly demonstrated how suited to golf it was. In Japan, the G9 was known as a ‘swing jacket’ due to its suitability to golf. The length of the sleeves, the elasticated cuffs and hem all contribute to the G9

not only looking good but also performing efficiently.
A combination of full zip and collar buttons rounds off what many consider to be the perfect example of form following function. On the inside, the G9 is lined with the famous Fraser tartan. The history of this pattern dates as far back as the 18th century and has prevailed both civil and clan wars. In 1938, John Miller was given permission by the Fraser Clan chief, the 24th Lord Lovat to use the Fraser Tartan for the G9 lining. Reputedly a colourful character, Lord Lovat was heralded by Winston Churchill as “the most mild-mannered man that ever scuttled ships or cut a mans throat.”
