Baracuta's G4-D4 Dainese Barapel jacket

London-based classic jacket and outerwear hipster retailers, Baracuta, have announced a new collaboration for Spring/Summer 16 with Italian powerhouse Dainese who are providing the protection for a new fashion jacket.

Founded in 1937 in Manchester but with their flagship store in the heart of the capital in trendy Carnaby Street, Baracuta’s new G4 – D4 Barapel jacket features exclusive and detachable shoulder and elbow protection made by Dainese. The armour even matches the inner lining’s Fraser Tartan design.

The new G4 jacket comes with a coated outer fabric that is both waterproof and breathable, and all seams are heat taped ensuring complete protection against the elements. 

The G4 is derived from the cult of the G9 Harrington jacket which exploded during the '50s thanks to its distribution in the United States and the adoption of the brand by celebrities like Elvis Presley, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen and even the ’66 World Cup winning England footy team. Years later it was also adopted by different youth subcultures, as the mods, punks, skinheads and the Britpop which make it an ideal brand for the hipsters, customisers and Bike Shedders of today.

£325 to you sir, available from 36" - 48" chest

The G4 – D4 Dianese – Barapel is priced at a trendy £325 and is available in sizes 36-48 from the website, in the London store and retailers worldwide. It’s made from 40% Cotton, 40% Polyester, 20% Polyurethane.
