Respected British brand Baracuta aligns with Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments for a standout collab that puts the spotlight on Baracuta’s legendary G9 and G4 jackets, as part of its FW18 collection.
Staying true to the details that have made the G9 a classic, the new G9 reinterpreted by Engineered Garments, features the original archive fit, nodding to the very first version of the G9 to hit the market, and the Baracuta cloth, the one and only canvas for the iconic jacket. For the inside, the inner lining is no longer made from the brand’s signature Fraser Tartan fabric.
The distinctive tartan motif takes a step back, disappearing from the lateral panels of the jacket. A stratagem that shines the spotlight on the inner pocket, bearing the Engineered Garments written logo; the Baracuta label, instead, stays in place on the back of the collar.
For the G4 by Engineered Garments, the fit goes back to the origins as well, and so do the buttons. The notable changes are its collar button holes and the inner lining, which follows in the G9’s footsteps, featuring the classic Fraser Tartan only in the center. Just like the G9, it also boasts the same umbrella back vent, along with sleeve gussets, for a more versatile fit, and micro-buckles on the waist.
Each rendered in timeless colors of black and navy, the minimalist silhouettes will be available to purchase at Baracuta and select retailers worldwide starting August 4.
