Where the runway meets the street

Iconic outerwear brand Baracuta has always had a strong fan base, but expert collector Akira Tamaki has taken fan-hood to an entirely new level. Tamaki’s collection, which Baracuta has now acquired, is thought to contain around 77 years worth of original G9 Harringtons. Initially attracted to the brand’s heritage and details, Tamaki recognized the jacket as “the coolest style ever” and began collecting G9’s in all available colorways. Nearly 40 years later, Tamaki is one of the brand’s most prominent vintage Baracuta collectors and continues to appreciate the details that make Baracuta G9 jackets a closet essential.
