Founded in San Francisco in the early 1920s, Golden Bear has been making classic, timeless jackets in the American tradition ever since. Originally a workwear brand intended for San Francisco's longshoremen, Golden Bear later expanded its offerings to include a Varsity jacket, a Bomber jacket, and a Motorcycle jacket. As they produced varsities for high schools and colleges and custom designs for major figures in San Francisco's counter culture, their jackets began to travel, and soon were sold throughout the United States and in Japan. Today, Golden Bear's products aren't so different from their earlier models: well-built leather and wool coats in full, relaxed cuts—an American classic. If it ain't broke, right?
