Baracuta’s G12 Coat, a modern icon in the making, owes its existence to the esteemed legacy of its precursor, the revered G10. In the realm of Baracuta, where style meets functionality, the G12 stands tall as a testament to continuous innovation.

For those unfamiliar with its history, the G10 has been a cherished staple in the Baracuta lineup for several decades. What sets it apart from its renowned siblings, the G4 and G9 Jackets, is its knee-length design. This longer silhouette was designed to offer protection to suits against the whims of rainy weather, a noble purpose indeed. The defining feature of the G10, which was one of the pioneering pieces in Baracuta's production archives, is the umbrella back yoke. This feature, a cape sewn onto the back of the jacket, serves the practical function of facilitating the flow of rainwater off the coat, making it ideal for wet weather.

However, the G10’s journey from classic to iconic took an unexpected twist in 1966, a year etched in history for England's World Cup triumph against West Germany. In celebration of this monumental victory, the Miller Brothers, the brilliant minds behind Baracuta, dressed the English football team in G10 Coats that were thoughtfully customised for each squad member. It was a fusion of fashion and history, as the G10 Coat became a symbol of British pride and achievement.

Fast forward to today, and we witness the emergence of the G12, a coat that embodies enhanced protection and warmth. This icon seamlessly draws inspiration from its predecessor, inheriting its unique characteristics such as the single-breasted closure, diagonal pockets, adjustable wrist buckles, the iconic umbrella back yoke, and the timeless Fraser Tartan lining.

However, the G12 is more than just a continuation of the G10's legacy; it's a reinterpretation of the classic Trench Coat. While it retains the Trench Coat's sophistication, it does away with the belt and infuses a distinct Baracuta charm. Trench coats are not new to Baracuta. The Miller family have been in the rainwear industry since before the conception of Baracuta in 1937, as far back as 1912!

Trench Coats have a storied history that spans over two centuries, firmly cementing their status as one of Britain's most enduring fashion pieces. Celebrities, spanning generations and genres, including the likes of Romeo Beckham, Audrey Hepburn, and Michael Caine, have all proudly donned Trench Coats, illustrating their universal appeal.

The G12, with its soft and gentle structure, takes the classic raincoat to new heights of elegance. It's designed with a looser fit and includes the possibility to add an inner lining attachment for extra protection against the cold and rain of winter. Compared to the G10, the G12 boasts a longer silhouette, and it's crafted from the iconic Baracuta Cloth. This coat is not just a versatile layer for your favourite outfits but, in our view, pairs effortlessly with every piece in your wardrobe.

In a world where fashion transcends age, size, and gender, the G12 Coat marks Baracuta's take on the timeless Trench. It's a nod to tradition, a salute to innovation, and an invitation to explore the world in style. Whether you're strolling through the city streets or venturing into the countryside, the G12 is your steadfast companion for all seasons and occasions. As Baracuta continues to redefine classic fashion, the G12 is a testament to the brand's enduring commitment to style, quality, and elegance.
