When in doubt, go classic. It’s something I remind myself constantly when I’m choosing clothing, and there aren’t too many menswear pieces as classic or iconic as the Baracuta G9. Just FYI, the Baracuta G9 might not have been the actual jacket that James Dean wore in Rebel Without A Cause (the jury’s still out), but it’s a close enough replica to fool the average humanoid. Anyway, now that it’s getting hot here in New York, this is about the heaviest layer I’ll be able to wear for the next few months, so I figure why not go all out with the colour? I’ve been keeping it super simple with a plain white T-shirt, blue jeans and black leather lace-ups (literally just like James Dean in the movie), and it makes a great change from my usual all-blue-everything wardrobe. Easy.
