Wool G9 Harrington Jacket – Houndstooth Camel


The story of the Harrington is inextricably tied to that of John Simons. As is well documented, the jacket famously earned its title from none other than John himself, who in 1965 recognised Baracuta’s G9 model, which was being sold at the Ivy Shop in Richmond, to be the same as that worn by the character of Rodney Harrington, in the 1960’s TV show Peyton Place. As was customary at that time, John placed the new line centre stage in his display window, with a hand-written note dubbing it “The Rodney Harrington”, in turn forever changing the menswear lexicon.

The Baracuta G9 remains the first and most classic iteration of the Harrington jacket, first conceived in Manchester in 1937 and set apart by its unique Fraser Tartan lining, ribbed dog ear collar with two button closer, and umbrella back yoke, all of which marks it as immediately distinct from cheaper market stall iterations. The G9 is a versatile garment which pairs wonderfully with everything from artisanal Japanese denim and chukka boots to chinos and loafers.

Available in a Houndstooth Wool fabric, this jacket is the ideal garment for the Autumn months. Much in the same way that Corduroy Sack Jacket imbues just the right amount of casual into a more conservative garment, the Wool Harrington incorporates the perfect touch of rustic chic into an inherently casual item. This smart/casual duality in itself taps into one of the most appealing aspects of the Ivy look.
