Looking to adapt and update their British G9 Harrington jacket, Baracuta has teamed up with Manchester boutique Oi Polloi to rework the iconic outerwear. The story behind the design process and choice of shamrock green is derived from a time in international motor racing when each national entrant was allotted a different color. The British were forced to choose a different color than their traditional red white and blue, as Italy, Germany, and France had already pre-occupied those choices, so green it was.

Look out for the release in January at Oi Polloi.
