Hello, hopefully this is the right forum for this question. Recently purchased a Baracuta G9 Harrington, and was wondering what the fit is suppose be like to anyone who has experience with it? It fits me well everywhere, albeit snugly, except being a bit tight on the shoulders at certain positions, namely with both arms extended or when crossing my arms behind my head. Is the jacket suppose to fit more loosely, and should I size up one? If pictures would help, I can do so later when I get home. Would appreciate the advice!

pictures will help. Hard to tell from your description whether you should size up or not. It should fit trim but not tight. I don't really think it's helpful to judge fit of a jacket like this by crossing your arms behind your head or other such contortions that aren't relevant to real-life situations.

Mirror selfies are not the best photos to judge fit. But based on what you're showing, it fits fine if you don't plan to layer anything heavier underneath.

If it feels too tight, it's probably too tight. Size up. Get a cozy fit. If you don't believe me, look at photos of Steve McQueen wearing his G9. He's layering under it and it's not skinny on him at all. The modern G9s seem way too skinny IMHO. The classic fit is roomy enough to swing a golf club in.

Bit of a bump, hope that's ok.

Going to order a G9 in uk 42 size. Am 185cm, 80kilos and pretty slim / athletic. I realise that's vague, but i've heard the sizings on these can be somewhat different. Also this model is 190cm according to the site, and the sleeves look about right on him. Thinking they may be a bit long on me.



The quintessential Harrington jacket: Baracuta G9. Renowned and appreciated over the years for its versatility and classic timeless style. Worn and loved by some of the most noteworthy men in recent history, it remains a true icon today. Shell made of water-resistant polyester/cotton. Lined with Fraser Tartan made of breathable cotton/polyester Coolmax®. Zipper fastening. Classic 2-button Baracuta collar. Front pockets with button-down flap. "Umbrella" back vent. Ribbed waist, cuffs, and inner collar. Made in England. The model is 190cm tall and wears size 42.

I think it depends on which G9 one is selecting . The ordinary G9 is still roomy but I would say that the MiE G9 is much more slim cut and is more of a tailored fit , not roomy at all . Maybe size up if it is a MiE. .
