Baracuta Ramsey Coat


Something quite extraordinary happened in 1966 in England, as the country hosted the World Cup football match. Whilst few were that enthralled throughout the tournament, when the England team started to thrash through the matches to meet West Germany in the World Cup Final at Wembley Stadium in north London, the country was gripped. Even Her Majesty The Queen attended the final and presented the famous cup to her home team. This week has seen the 50th anniversary of that match, and to celebrate outwear brand Baracuta is reissuing a special edition of the G23 – Ramsey Coat. A distinctive take on the classic Baracuta single-breasted raincoat, it was specially designed for the England National Football team in 1966 and is part of the Baracuta Archive project with the raincoat named after Sir Alf Ramsey – the England team manager. This updated reimagining of the iconic single breasted garment that pays homage to the legacy of Baracuta as purveyors of great British Rainwear, it was chosen as the official supplier of the team uniform for England National team and includes an Umbrella back and Fraser tartan coupled with the original Ramsey aesthetic which features a shoulder plaque and a special inner label. It seems Baracuta have done well fifty years on, unlike out own national football team since.
