G9 x Drizzler

| 23 Dec ’10 | 3 Comments

One of the many cross breeds between the Baracuta G9 style of jacket and it’s main rival the McGregor Drizzler. This model by Sir Jac from 1959 has the G9 collar but with the Drizzler style beaded seam pockets.

I remember buying a similar one in tan cotton from John Simons c 1993 made by some Italian company and called ‘the officer’s jacket’.

    I believe J Press offered a very similar jacket until recently. Never saw one in the flesh but it looked very short in the photos – in a good way.

    Could this be a picture of Clapton’s Golf jacket, Yardbirds-era?

      Could well be Hank!
