As far as classic closet essentials go, the Baracuta G4 jacket is a must-have. According to expert collector Akira Tamaki, the historic English silhouette can be likened with a pair of 501′s – slowly improved with minute details over time. Tamaki began collecting the jackets after noticing the subtle differences between two Baracuta jackets he owned, which is quite a statement considering how little the design has deviated from the original. In the above video, Tamaki takes us through his collection and details what it takes to make an icon. Enjoy.
