Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen and Elvis Presley – they all wore the G9 from Baracuta. Now you can buy the cool jackets from Baracuta in our KICKZ Online Shop. The first Baracuta factory was opened in Manchester as early as 1937. Since its foundation, the brand has stood for best quality and high-quality material. Baracuta's rainproof clothing became popular in the mid-1940s, mainly through the distribution of print ads of the face of Lord Lovat, who was one of Britain's most famous soldiers and commanders. This contributed to the growing success of the company and in 1950 the jackets were also exported to the USA and Canada.
