Today would have been Steve McQueen’s birthday. To celebrate, our friends at one of McQueen’s favourite brands, Baracuta, have issued a 15% discount code, valid from now until 7th April. Use the code FASHIONTHING at the checkout. Valid on any full priced items, including the iconic Baracuta G9 Harrington.
The Baracuta G9 is the original Harrington jacket, originally created in 1937. Baracuta is one of a handful of wonderful British companies that have created an enduring product that has remained popular for decades. The Harrington has been the jacket of choice for various Iconic men through the ages, including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and, of course, Steve McQueen. The original G9 Harrington is still made today to exactly the same measurements, and is lined with the original Fraser tartan. Lord Lovat, the Fraser Clan chief, granted permission for its use in 1938. This kind of history is incredible, and the heritage shows throughout the Baracuta collection. Timeless, and bang on trend at once. Latter days have seen the brand favoured by the likes of Liam Gallagher, Jamie T and (unfortunately), Pete Doherty.
The Baracuta “Made in England” line features the G9 Harrington jacket in two fits, classic for the purist, and a more contemporary straight fit.
A versatile, stylish wardrobe can be successfully built around items like the G9 Harrington. Get involved, and don’t forget the discount code FASHIONTHING. Read the full Steve McQueen Post Here
